Europol has today published guidelines to help industry and law enforcement counter the threat presented by ATM logical and malware attacks. The document was officially launched during their keynote address at the EAST Financial Crime & Security (FCS) Forum – EAST FCS 2015. These threats have been highlighted at the event, along with recommended best practice and countermeasures.
The production of this document has been coordinated by the EAST Expert Group on ATM Fraud (EGAF), and is a first of its kind.
The document is a great example of a coordinated central response from both Law Enforcement and the industry to fighting ATM malware threats in an effort to respond much more quickly than was the case with the card skimming threat when it first materialised.
Circulation of the document is restricted to Law Enforcement and to the banking and payments industry, which includes EAST Members (National and Associate).
