2019 EAST FCS SEMINARS

EAST Financial Crime & Security (FCS) Events are user-driven events aimed at professionals involved with identifying, preventing and detecting security risks and crime relating to ATMs and other self-service terminals from a wide range of organisations, including banks and police forces.

 

The 2019 EAST FCS Event took place on 9th October 2019. It was held in London and co-located with RBR’s ATM & Cyber Security 2019 conference at the Park Plaza Victoria hotel in London. The Financial Crime and Security seminars comprised of two dedicated tracks:

 

  • Terminal Fraud Seminar

This interactive event followed the basic structure of EAST EGAF Member meetings. An introduction to the Group was followed by a presentation of the latest EAST Fraud Statistics (H1 2019) and a high-level overview of the European situation by Europol. Then a session focussed on the terminal fraud situation in four countries/regions, followed by a short discussion. This was followed by a practical demonstration of Project Checkcard, aimed at checking the validity of EMV cards, followed by a session topic still tbc. Attendance at EAST EGAF meetings is limited due to the size of the Group and this event enables a wider participation and the opportunity for all attendees to engage with the Group and its organizers.

 

  • ATM Physical Attacks Seminar

This interactive event followed the basic structure of EAST EGAP Member meetings.  An introduction to the Group was followed by presentation of the latest EAST Physical Attack Statistics (H1 2019) and recent attack definitions, and a high-level overview of the European situation by Europol.  Then a session focussed on the ATM physical attack situation in five countries, which was followed by a session on banknote infrared recognition.  The event concluded with a Q&A session on all attack types and counter-measures.  Attendance at EAST EGAP meetings is limited, as it is a working group, and this event enables a wider participation and the opportunity for all attendees to engage with the Group and its organizers.
