Benefits to Merchants Customers
Visa® International is everywhere consumers to be, providing consumers in Eastern or Central Europe, the Middle East, Latin America including the Caribbean, or the Middle East. Along with sister companies Visa Canada and Visa U.S.A., Visa International was created when parent company Visa Inc. reorganized and filed for an IPO in late 2007. (Visa Europe was spun off; it is owned by its European member banks.)
Visa Inc. operates the world’s largest retail electronic payments network and is one of the most recognized global financial services brands. Visa facilitates global commerce through the transfer of value and information among financial institutions, merchants, consumers, businesses and government entities.
Visa® has been a driver behind the modern evolution of payment. Fifty years ago, Visa’s vision was to offer individuals and businesses a better alternative to cash and checks. Visa’s founder, Dee Hock, believed “digital money” could transform currencies and commerce, dismantling economic barriers and transcending national borders by freeing people and businesses to buy and sell with ease and security.
Visa’s vision has come of age in the 21st century. Today, we are the universal currency of life, connecting hundreds of millions of people, governments and businesses in more than 170 countries. Together, they use our credit, debit and prepaid products and services to safely and reliably exchange goods and services.

Recent Statement From by Visa CEO
In remarks at an industry security summit, Visa USA President and CEO John Philip Coghlan told an audience of more than 400 business, government and academic representatives that payment security must become a strategic priority for businesses and that all entities touching payments must invest in security to maintain consumer trust.
“Trust is emerging as one of the critical business issues of the 21st century,” Coghlan told the audience. “Data security must move out of the back office and into the boardroom. Corporate officers must apply the same rigor to data security as they do to their financial controls.”
