While most payment transactions take place seamlessly and without issue, financial criminals remain active and terminal fraud is a problem for payment terminal deployers, ATM deployers, card issuers, equipment manufacturers and vendors, software providers, law enforcement agencies and other payment industry stakeholders. On 10th October 2018 the EAST Expert Group on All Terminal Fraud (EAST EGAF) will hold an open Financial Crime & Security (FCS) Seminar in London to focus on the issue. EAST EGAF is chaired by Otto de Jong of ING Bank.
EAST Executive Director Lachlan Gunn said ‘EAST EGAF was formed as a working group in 2013 and will hold its 16th Meeting on Wednesday 19th September 2018 in Amsterdam. Attendance at EAST EGAF meetings is restricted in accordance with the group’s Terms of Reference, which makes the coming FCS Seminar in October a great opportunity for all those affected by, or concerned about, terminal fraud to engage with EAST’.
This interactive event focuses on two key outputs of EAST EGAF – Guidelines regarding logical attacks on ATMs and standardised fraud definitions. An introduction to the Group will be followed by a presentation of the latest EAST Fraud Statistics (H1 2018). A session by Juan Jesús León Cobos of GMV will then focus on the evolution of cash-out/jackpotting attacks in Latin America, followed by a session by Europol’s Tobias Wieloch highlighting Guidelines on how to counter them. A perspective on card shimming in the UK will then be given by forensic experts Brian Underhill and Nick Weber, followed by a session on the importance of standardising fraud definitions by Ben Birtwistle of RBS and Claire Shufflebotham of TMD Security. The event is co-located with RBR’s ATM & Cyber Security 2018 Conference. See the full programme here.
Attendance at EAST EGAF meetings is limited, as it is a working group, and this EAST FCS Seminar enables wider participation and the opportunity for all attendees to engage with the Group and its organisers.
