ATMIA’s ATM Security Association Releases Global Fraud and Security Survey Results

ATMIA’s ATM Security Association (ASA) today published the2019 Global Fraud and Security Survey, one of the most comprehensive security reports in the ATM industry.

The percentage of respondents reporting a general increase in ATM crime rose slightly from 54% in 2017 to 58% this year, the report found.  Specific types of threats are covered in the study, including ATM skimming, PIN compromise, deposit-related fraud, cash trapping, dispenser jackpotting, transaction reversal fraud, card trapping, eavesdropping, card data malware, shimming chip card data, network packet sniffing, as well as remote and other network compromise for card data.

“I’d like to thank Douglas Russell of DFR Risk Management for a professional analysis of the 2019 fraud industry survey,” Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA and President of ASA. “The results enable us to detect year-on-year changes to trends in ATM attacks so that we can adjust our security strategies, solutions and best practices for more effective countermeasures and greater protection of our industry’s assets.”

Members of ATMIA receive a free Executive Summary but those wishing to access the full report should consider becoming ASA subscribers. This will also give you access to the new Theoretical Risk Register which assesses the risks of types of attack happening in other channels and other sectors migrating to the ATM channel in the near future. In addition you will be entitled to download the full range of international security best practices for end-to-end protection of the ATM.
