security eventsEAST and RBR will be co-locating key security events at the Park Plaza Victoria hotel in London, on 9th and 10th October 2018.

EAST’s Financial Crime & Security (FCS) Seminars, organised by the EAST Expert Group on all Terminal Fraud (EGAF) and the EAST Expert Group on ATM & ATS Physical Attacks (EGAP), first took place at the third EAST FCS Forum in June 2017.

RBR’s ATM & Cyber Security 2018 conference has established itself over the past decade as the world’s leading conference focused on physical and logical ATM security.  The 2017 event attracted 400 delegates representing 150 organisations from over 40 countries.

Co-locating these important events provides a unique opportunity for ATM and financial security professionals, including retail banks, law enforcement agencies, hardware and software providers and a range of industry bodies, to meet to discuss how best to address the latest security threats.

RBR’s ATM & Cyber Security 2018 will run for 1.5 days, immediately followed by the EAST FCS Seminars.  While the RBR and EAST events will continue to be run independently, hosting them in the same venue will concentrate an unprecedented level of expertise, with the ultimate objective of reducing the levels and impact of crime at ATMs and other payment terminals.

EAST’s Executive Director, Lachlan Gunn said, “ATM & Cyber Security is an important global security conference with a proven track record, and we believe that co-locating it with EAST’s user-driven FCS Seminars provides a compelling proposition for our members and for all industry stakeholders”.

RBR’s Managing Director Dominic Hirsch added, “EAST has a unique relationship with its members and RBR has for many years been impressed with the professional way it leads fraud intelligence and information sharing across Europe and beyond. There has always been a mutual respect between our organisations and we are delighted to have the opportunity to work together”.

Registration for the EAST FCS Seminars is not yet open and further information will be provided on the Events Page on this website in due course.
