Conexxus, NACS’ technology partner, teamed
up with the National ATM Council (NAC)
to develop an ATM Skimming Detection &
Deterrence Guide that outlines steps convenience retailers can take to help stop skimming,
and what to do if or when their ATM is compromised by a skimming device.
“Our guide helps c-store personnel and retail
ATM providers ‘up their game’ to protect customers’
card data in advance of MasterCard’s ATM EMV
liability shift this October,” said Gray Taylor, executive director of Conexxus.
Although convenience stores and other indoor
retail ATMs have traditionally not been targeted by
criminals, skimming now appears to be on the rise as
criminals sense a “closing window of opportunity”
with the new and more secure EMV chip cards and
EMV updated terminals now being implemented in
the United States.
“The guide is an excellent and concise hands-on
resource, with user-friendly and practical information,” said Bruce Renard, executive director of
NAC. “Cardholder safety and security have always
been a hallmark of retail ATMs and this guide will
help make sure it stays that way.”
