Advancing security in the right direction
MasterCard and its business partners share a common goal – to protect payment card transactions and personal data against fraud.
Pioneering Security Innovation for Forty Years
For four decades, MasterCard has led industry efforts to create a more secure environment for financial transactions. MasterCard is committed to providing innovative measures that protect cardholder account information and enable MasterCard members and merchant businesses to minimise losses due to payment card fraud.

From holograms and tamper-evident signature strips to card validation codes, many of the security innovations from MasterCard have become industry standards. And to meet the ongoing challenge of fraud, MasterCard will continue to develop new initiatives to make the future of payment transactions even more secure.
