Identifying security gaps and residual risk across an existing network of terminals is critically important. Risk assessments quantify the risk of future attacks and may also identify attacks that have previously taken place, but have either eluded detection or have not been adequately acted upon. DFR Risk Management perform risk assessments for our clients to identify such elements warranting attention and suggest appropriate corrective action.
DFR Risk Management use their extensive global knowledge and experience of ATM fraud and security attack methods and proprietary tools to establish a framework and execute hands-on evaluation of the technical security solutions provided by ATM vendors and third party suppliers. This approach is effectively an ATM specific ‘penetration test’ or ‘health check’ which either identifies areas that are vulnerable to current and emerging threats or provides a level of confidence in the overall security of the ATM estate. While the framework is tailored to the specific environment being assessed, typical activities range from assessing the effectiveness of anti-skimming solutions to evaluating the ease of compromising the ATM cabinet to install ATM malware or attach black boxes to jackpot the dispenser.
