WASHINGTON – The next couple of years may be when credit unions will begin to ask their members to take a more active role in preventing card fraud, according to Visa and other executives attending Visa's Global Card Security Summit.

"We agree that everyone has a role to play in securing the system-including consumers themselves," Ellen Richey, chief enterprise risk officer for Visa USA told attendees at the meeting.
