Protecting Retail ATMs


Presented by: Al Jamir, vice-president, Cash Depot, along with Bruce Renard, executive director, The National ATM Council.

Conexxus and the National ATM Council have jointly developed a guide focused on preventing and detecting ATM skimming in a convenience store environment.  

What is ATM Skimming?

Skimming is the theft of credit/debit card information by a device placed in, on, or around an ATM. These devices allow criminals to secretly record credit/debit card information (from the magnetic stripe) - for later use in fraudulently producing counterfeit cards. ATM skimming also includes capturing customer PINs associated with the cards using a hidden micro camera that records the PIN digits. Keypad overlays and “shoulder surfing” are other methods.

Webinar topics included are:

  • What is ATM skimming?
  • What is the threat to my store ATMs?
  • How to maintain a skim-free environment
  • What to do if you find a skimmer
