During the major event, representatives of the association will explain the activities to date, the benefits for potential members as well as the strategic roadmap and the next steps of the independent organization.
The ATM Security Association for Enhanced Technology is a non-profit association dedicated to improving ATM security. Its aim is to compile information on recognized and potential attack scenarios on ATMs and share that information with specific industry groups to rapidly develop and implement counter-measures at a global level. The main purpose of the ATM Security Association is to create a global network throughout the ATM provider chain enhancing security including all involved parties like Global ATM manufacturers, Suppliers, Financial Institutions, Service Providers and IADs. One of the primary goals of the ATM Security Association is the creation of security standards focused on the deployers’ self-service channel. The focus of the association will be on both hardware and software-related threats, physical and logical attacks. The target is to consider the total environment of the ATM that can have a direct impact on secure usage and operations.
