Why EMV Chips Are Suddenly Hot

EMV chips are suddenly hot because the retail industry is using this issue as a foil to pass the buck on their member's deficient security systems that cause these massive breaches. This is a retail industry manufactured issue to deflect blame. EMV chips were coming anyway, and there is nothing new here except the retail industry using this issue as a straw man to shield them from their own weaknesses.
