Direct losses to financial institutions from ATM related attacks amount to hundreds of millions while ranging from low-tech to highly sophisticated schemes. As banking and payment systems evolve, so do fraudsters' expertise and methods of illicit financial gain. The nature of the ATM environment encompasses many internal and external stakeholders, which presents wider attack surfaces and leads to more exploitable opportunities for fraudsters.
