Violent attacks on ATMs, cyber intrusion, jackpotting, malware attacks, card skimming, black box attacks, and social engineering are just some of the threats being discussed at ATM & Cyber Security 2018

RBR’s ATM & Cyber Security 2018, widely recognised as the most important physical and logical ATM security conference of the year, returns to the Park Plaza Victoria Hotel in London in October. The event is being co-located with the EAST Financial Crime & Security Seminars for the first time, providing a unique opportunity for all security industry stakeholders.

Preventative security measures more important than ever in the fight against financial crime

Despite advances in security technology, criminals’ methods are evolving, meaning ATM deployers need to constantly refine their strategies and update their solutions against the latest attacks. It is not just physical ATM crime that concerns ATM deployers – cyber and logical attacks are particularly worrying because of the scale of the risk they present. Well reported cyber attacks such as WannaCry and Petya have raised the profile of cyber threats in the banking sector.

Bank security strategy has to be more comprehensive and multichannel than ever before to ensure early threat detection. Banks and law enforcement agencies from around the world are increasingly joining forces to combat the modern criminal – such industry collaboration and technological innovation are essential for tackling the problem.

Leading banks and law enforcement agencies to share cutting edge case studies

The popularity of the ATM & Cyber Security 2018 conference stems from the extensive speaker agenda which features thought leadership and best practice presentations from a diverse range of banks including Barclays (UK), Bankhaus August Lenz (Germany), Itaú Unibanco (Brazil) and TD Bank (USA), and the comprehensive range of topics covered, including artificial intelligence, biometric identification, black box attacks, cyber intrusion, gas and explosive attacks, jackpotting, malware attacks, skimming, social engineering and video surveillance.

This year’s programme includes a wide range of law enforcement case studies, including heavy hitters such as the FBI, Interpol, and the UK National Cyber Security Centre.

Networking and sharing of best practice invaluable

Conference Manager, Amanda Hardy, was keen to emphasise: “Security is a sensitive issue for banks, and ATM & Cyber Security 2018 offers the opportunity for organisations to learn from each other and discuss in person the challenges they face in a professional and supportive environment”.

Delegates have the opportunity to engage directly with speakers, both in Q&A discussions and during the extended coffee and lunch breaks. Over 400 senior executives representing 40 countries are expected to attend this year’s event, offering unrivalled industry networking.

In addition to a world-class speaker programme, the event features a dedicated exhibition area, with exhibitors* showcasing cutting-edge security technology, comprising the latest physical and logical solutions for ATMs and other banking channels.
