ATM Cashout Scam
Hopefully you have experienced that rewarding sensation when a casino slot machine dispenses quarters endlessly into your plastic money bucket.

In some cases with larger payouts, a casino employee may come over and give you cash or a check. Now imagine sitting at a slot machine when $20,000 in bills shoots out.

Cybercriminals know ATMs are loaded with cash, and they are investing significant resources in exploiting systems to extract the money… in some cases, causing cash to shoot out from the ATM.

The FFIEC has posted guidance around ATMs to bring awareness to “Unlimited Operations” fraud schemes. We have also seen ATMs infected with malware from USB devices, attacked with advanced slim skimmers “shimmers”, and hacked via network connections.

This session is intended to ensure that ATM security has moved up on your radar and been properly integrated into your risk assessment program. We will explore some of the guidance around ATMs, the latest ATM crime trends, new security controls to mitigate risk, and how you can integrate your ATMs into your Information Security Program.

Covered Topics

  • ATM Cybercrimes
  • Real images and examples of ATM compromises
  • Risk Assessment suggestions to select appropriate controls
  • Policy and procedures to implement controls
  • Technical Assessments for ATMs
  • Auditing methods for ATMs
