Did you realize that your payment cards are embedded with microchips that protect you from evildoers? Called EMV, these chips serve as our own personal superheroes! Like Wonder Woman's bulletproof bracelets and shields, when we use our EMV cards at the payment terminal, we unleash our own defensive super powers every time we use a chipped card. Instantly, we stop fraudsters, identity thieves, and black hats in their tracks. You may also be surprised to learn about the other security measures that enable us to to pay securely via phones, wearables, Amazon Echo, with cryptocurrencies, and soon through our cars and refrigerators.  This lively talk will make you all feel like Wonder Woman: filled with a sense of power, grace, wisdom, and wonder.
