We are all Cardholders and therefore have an interest in ATM and payment terminal security. While the vast majority of ATM transactions are carried out securely and without risk, there are times when your card and PIN can be at risk, if criminals have targeted the ATM (or other terminal) you are using. To minimize the risk of fraud you can help keep your data secure by always protecting your PIN when using an ATM (or any other terminal).

Some key high level security advice to cardholders from the FraudSMART website in Ireland is:
Be Informed: Stay in control, don’t be rushed and make a decision you will regret.
Be Alert: To unexpected/unsolicited emails, telephone calls or texts. Always independently check the person is who they say they are.
Be Secure: Never give your security details such as full banking password, codes/login details, or PIN to anyone
