January Next-Gen Debit Tracker®

The Next-Gen Debit Tracker® is a PYMNTS and PULSE collaboration. This month, we take a look at how the pandemic has changed consumers’ debit-related spending habits, why more and more cybercriminals are targeting debit cards and how issuers and businesses can shore up their anti-fraud measures.

Inside the January Tracker

  • The latest next-gen debit headlines, including how California lawmakers are moving to reduce debit-related unemployment fraud and why consumers chose debit over credit during the 2020 holiday shopping season
  • A deep dive examining why debit-related fraud has surged since the start of the pandemic and how banks and other financial players must adjust their fraud protection strategies accordingly
