Black box attacks. Skimming and shimming. Cutting, drilling and prying.
The threats faced by today’s ATMs are enough to make your head spin, and they’re growing more sophisticated by the day. And these days, there’s so much more than money at stake.
While ATMs have long tempted criminals as “big boxes of cash,” customer data and information is today’s top prize. Consider:
That’s enough to grab your attention, right?
Now imagine that one of your customers has their data stolen after they withdraw cash. Suddenly their trust in your organization is shattered—and they’re thinking twice before they’re comfortable using your system again.
Today, your entire self-service ecosystem needs a multilayered strategy to harden itself against attacks. Even as new technologies like contactless, mobile and biometrics emerge, criminals will constantly develop new methods—and sometimes reappropriate old methods—of compromising self-service terminals. They’re infiltrating software environments, carrying out complex logical attacks, all in an effort to steal customer information.
