Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc.

A new survey from CA Technologies (CA) showed consumers lack knowledge and education about the new microprocessor chip credit and debit cards they have been receiving from card issuers to replace their standard magnetic stripe cards. The survey was conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CA Technologies earlier this month.

Although more than half of U.S. adults who have a credit/debit card have been issued a new chip card (59 percent), only two in five (41 percent) know what the benefits of the chip card are, and even fewer (37 percent) say their card issuer offered information or education on how to use it.

Further demonstrating the lack of knowledge and education, more than three quarters of the credit/debit card owners who have received a chip card said they believe their new chip card will better protect them from fraud during an online purchase (77 percent).

CA, Inc. (CA Technologies) is engaged in providing information technology (IT) administration software and solutions. The Company operates through three business segments: Mainframe Solutions, Enterprise Solutions and Services.
