EAST EGAF is a regional expert group that focuses on regional and global payment terminal crime and fraud related issues, threats and counter-measures.
The meeting was chaired by Mr Otto de Jong and was attended by key representatives from Terminal Deployers, Terminal Vendors, Networks, Card Schemes, Security Equipment and Software Vendors, Law Enforcement and Forensic Analysts.
The Group, which meets three times a year in advance of each of the meetings of EAST National Members, enables in-depth and technical discussion to take place on Logical and Malware attacks, Card Skimming, Card Trapping, Cash Trapping and Transaction Reversal Fraud.
In addition EAST EGAF generates EAST Fraud Alerts for all EAST Members (National and Associate). In total 219 EAST Fraud Alerts have been issued, 18 to date in 2019.
EAST EGAF meetings are restricted to working group members and, to provide a wider platform for sharing/discussion, the Group is holding a half-day open seminar in London on 9th October 2019. Registration for this is still open and more information can be found on the EAST Events website.
