MasterCard lends helping hand to online traders

Share this article:

MasterCard is to help online traders tackle fraud with a two-part self-assessment security scheme.

Site Data Protection is an initiative that requires traders to complete a questionnaire on their business practices, which MasterCard then gives a security rating.

MasterCard then scans traders' websites to check for security flaws.

The scheme, which also includes chip and Pin security measures, is expected to begin before next January.
