2. Online payment risks
According to Juniper Research, digital payments fraud is estimated to cause $130 billion in damage to retailers around the world over the next 5 years. Meanwhile, National Retail Federation and Forrester’s survey reveals that 55% of the respondents said the top challenge in the payment sector facing retailers is fraud.
5G and IoT help to create a “hyper-connected” world with 25 billion devices that can communicate to each other by 2021. However, it also creates a cybercrime industry worth $600 billion. Each data loss case costs an average of $1.2 million.
Today, cybercriminals are equipped with better technology and resources. It should be noted that $600 billion is equal to 1% of global GDP.
Banks have to convert 30% of the number of ATM cards in the market into chip cards. By 2021, 75 million ATM cards will have been converted into chip cards. The conversion expects to help Vietnam escape from the ‘low-lying area’ of card fraud.
Nevertheless, conversion cost is also a challenge. The cost is currently about $1 per card while in the market, the price ranges from $1.5 to $2.5 per card.
