EAST EGAP

EAST EGAPThe ninth meeting of the EAST Expert Group on ATM and ATS Physical Attacks (EGAP) took place on Tuesday 6th March 2018 at Europol in The Hague.

EAST EGAP is a European specialist expert forum for discussion of ATM and ATS related physical attack trends, attack methodologies and counter-measures, threat protection, and for the provision of regularly updated lists of manufacturers of ATM protective devices. The latest lists can be downloaded from the ‘Stained Banknotes’ page on this website (bottom of page).

The meeting was chaired by Mr Graham Mott and was attended by key representatives from Terminal Deployers, ATM Networks, Security Equipment Vendors and Law Enforcement.  National threat assessments were shared by representatives from thirteen countries.

EAST EGAP, which meets twice each year, enables in-depth and technical discussion to take place. The areas covered include:

  • The latest incidents and criminal MOs
  • The collection and distribution of best practice guidelines
  • The evolution of threats and counter-measures
  • Lessons from and on law enforcement

EAST EGAP 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 10th October 2018.  Registration for this will soon be open and more information can be found on the EAST Events page.
