Explosive attacks on ATMs are a rising problem in Europe and in many other parts of the world. In a report covering the first six months of 2016 EAST reported a total of 492 explosive attacks in Europe, a rise of 80 percent compared to the same period in 2015. Such attacks do not just present a financial risk due to stolen cash, but also are the cause of significant collateral damage to equipment and buildings. Of most concern is the fact that lives can also be put in danger, particularly by the usage of solid explosives. Over the past few years the Netherlands has been particularly hard hit by such attacks.
At the upcoming EAST Financial Crime & Security Forum (EAST FCS 2017) Job Galesloot, Security Officer ING Domestic Banking, will share the Dutch experience and also how neighbouring countries have been impacted.
