SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (11/20/15)--The ATM Industry Association has launched an ATM Security training course. The training outlines the most common security threats to ATMs, as well as what best practices mitigate the risks of each type of attack.

Sessions within the course, which reflect today’s most common security threats, include:

  • Card theft;
  • Card data compromise;
  • Cash trapping and transactional reverse fraud (TRF);
  • Malware and black box attacks;
  • Physical attacks; and
