Diebold to add skimming protection to ATMs
NORTH CANTON, Ohio (6/3/10)--Diebold is adding protection solutions to its ATM machines to prevent card skimming, which is one of the largest fraud threats against ATMs worldwide. Skimmers are devices--often undetectable--that criminals attach to ATM card readers to record the information stored on a card’s magnetic stripe. The information is used to create cloned cards and conduct fraudulent transactions. Diebold’s ATM Security Protection Suite offers anti-skimming and monitoring, with five levels of protection to guard against skimming, specifically:
* Level one offers basic protection and includes ATM card reader security features specially designed to deter skimmer attachments; * Level two provides skimming detection technology that generates an alert when a fraudulent device has been added to a terminal; * Levels three and four prevent the capture of card information by emitting an electromagnetic field to interfere with a skimmer’s ability to capture data; and * Level five includes Diebold’s ATM SkimmingAlert Monitoring Service, which provides e-mail alerts and text alerts to card owners from the Diebold Monitoring Center.
Diebold, a CUNA Strategic Service, is based in North Canton, Ohio.
