ATM security: how to use all the capabilities of ATM video surveillance

According to the European Safe Transaction Association (EAST), in 2018 the number of physical attacks on ATM machines in Europe increased by 27% (from 3,584 to 4,449 incidents), and the amount of money stolen this way increased by 16% (from 31 to 36 million Euro).Our case analysis showed that despite having all the necessary tools, banks did not use their full functionality to prevent the crimes.

How do ATM attacks change and what is the price of new threats for banks

The number of attacks on ATMs increases every year. The attacks themselves are changing, becoming more complex and sophisticated.
