Europol has just published a French language version of the new guidelines to help industry and law enforcement counter the ATM Logical Attack threat. The English version of the document was officially launched in January 2019 at the 17th Meeting of the EAST Expert Group on All Terminal Fraud (EAST EGAF)
The production of this document was coordinated by EAST EGAF. It has three sections:
- Description of Modi Operandi (Description des Modes Opératoires)
- Mitigating the risk of ATM Logical and Malware Attacks, Setting up Lines of Defence (Réduction du risque d’Attaques Logiques et de Programmes Malveillants visant les DAB, Mise en place de Lignes de Défense)
- Identifying and responding to Logical and Malware Attacks (Identification et réponse aux Attaques Logiques et de Logiciels Malveillants)
This new version provides clearer definitions and greater clarity of the criminal methods and techniques encountered in these attacks, and more detailed recommendations on how to mount a robust and effective response to them.
Circulation of the document is restricted to Law Enforcement and to the banking and payments industry, which includes EAST Members (National and Associate).
