ATMIA in CNBC feature piece on skimming

ATMIA USA Executive Director, David Tente, recently appeared in a feature piece on ATM skimming, as part of a CNBC program called "On the Money".  The segment was aimed at consumers and helping them to avoid becoming a victim.

David discussed what the industry is doing to combat the increase in skimming activity, as well as the resources that ATMIA makes available to its members - such as Best Practices on preventing skimming and physical attacks.

ATMIA USA completes third EMV migration survey

ATMIA gathers feedback on EMV migration and post-migration issues.  

ATMIA recently  completed a new survey to gauge the progress of EMV migration in the U.S.  While the primary objective was to assess how complete EMV migration is in the ATM channel, ATMIA was also seeking feedback on post-migration issues like card and card reader problems, as well as thoughts on deployment of NFC technology, cardless solutions, and new ATM functionality.

Analysis of survey results is currently underway.  The survey report should be available to ATMIA members by early March.  Non-member participants received a code with which to claim a copy of the full report.  Questions or requests for more information about the survey project should be directed to David Tente, Executive Director, ATMIA USA & Americas (+1.407.833.7906)

Engaging with the ATM and U.S. Payments Industries

As part of its mission to serve as a voice for the ATM industry, ATMIA USA is actively engaged with a variety of industry and government bodies.  Despite frequent predictions for the demise of cash, by a few pundits, it remains a key component of the payments ecosystem.  ATMIA’s ongoing participation in these industry dialogues ensures that the needs of our industry receive appropriate consideration.

The Federal Reserve Faster Payment Task Force

The mission of the Faster Payments Task Force is to identify and evaluate alternative approaches for implementing safe, ubiquitous, faster payments capabilities in the United States that advance the following desired outcome:

A ubiquitous, safe, faster electronic solution(s) for making a broad variety of business and personal payments, supported by a flexible and cost-effective means for payment clearing and settlement groups to settle their positions rapidly and with finality.

ATMIA has joined the Faster Payments Task Force and will be working to ensure that any new payments platform can be successfully integrated into the U.S. ATM channel.

U.S. Payment Forum (formerly the EMV Migration Forum)

As of August 1, 2016, the EMV Migration Forum has become the U.S. Payments Forum.  With much of the EMV migration process behind, the group is broadening its mission.  

The EMF was formed an independent, cross-industry body by the Smart Card Alliance on July 31, 2012 to address issues that require broad cooperation and coordination across many constituents in the payments space in order to successfully introduce secure EMV contact and contactless technology in the United States. 

Led by numerous members of ATMIA, a new ATM Working Committee was set up in December, 2012 and formally approved by the EMF Steering Committee shortly thereafter.  The group is co-chaired by ATMIA USA Executive Director David Tente and two other ATMIA members.

The EMF also maintains a Knowledge Center as a public repository of information relative to EMV migration.  Documents can be searched by Category, Stakeholder or Title.  ATMIA members have been instrumental in creating the “Implementing EMV at the ATM” white paper which is available in the Knowledge Center and the ATMIA website White Papers section.

U.S. Congressional Payments Caucuses

Representatives Lynn Westmoreland (GA), Randy Neugebauer (TX), David Scott (GA), and Kyrsten Sinema (AZ), from the House Financial Services Committee recently formed the Congressional Payments Technology Caucus.  The Senate quickly followed with the formation of its own Payments Innovation Caucus by U.S. Senators Mike Rounds (SD), Gary Peters (MI), Johnny Isakson (GA) and Tom Carper (DE). 

Since their formation, it appears that the Senate's group has taken the lead with respect to industry engagement.  An initial event with consumer payments vendors has already been held.  ATMIA met with Senator Rounds' staff on February 4, 2016 to discuss participation by ATMIA in a future event and to offer our our assistance with input on industry matters of interest.
