GMR 410 Releases Video Series on ATM Attacks
Series Highlights ATM Crime and Prevention Tactics
The series, created by Mary Gates, Vice-President, aims to educate the financial industry on types of crime and respective strategies to mitigate risk.
Says Gates, “The types of ATM vulnerabilities, attack types and mitigation techniques are continuously evolving. I aimed to summarize and consolidate information in plain language so ATM operators and security professionals, no matter their level of experience, can spend less time researching solutions and more time planning their asset protection strategy. Unfortunately, the criminal penalties for ATM crimes are often less than for other types of robberies and the number of reported attacks on ATMs have been steadily increasing year over year. Security decisions impact every aspect of the business. Becoming more informed, analyzing the security needs of individual locations, categorizing locations based on their risk, implementing enhanced security strategies where appropriate, and working towards compliance with an ATM lighting program marry together to build a safety blueprint to help protect customers, assets and brand reputation.”
Given the increasing prevalence of ATM attacks, these videos are very relevant to today’s bank management practices. For more information, please visit the GMR 410 website.
