Published: 4 March 2022 y., Friday

This infographic shows the statistics of criminal activities in different regions of the world. We invite you to see how things are with the security of ATMs in 2021 and how relevant this problem is.

According to the infographic, in Africa, criminals most often try to use ATMs with a covered face. In Asia, most of the disputes, attempts at skimming and blowing up ATMs are made. The data in the infographics are incomplete and are taken from open sources, the website of the European Association for Secure Transactions, the Finextra information platform, etc.

Attacks on ATMs are due to the presence of large amounts of money in the devices. As the network of ATMs expands around the world, the sophistication of global crime is also growing. Due to the lack of security of ATMs in the USA and other countries, the number of robberies has increased significantly.

Modern ATMs are more like the bank's mini-outlets, so financial institutions must provide enhanced security and protection devices from various criminal activities. Until 2027, the global ATM security market is expected to grow steadily. The global ATM market is projected to reach $21.2 billion by 2028. The main growth factor for the increasing popularity of such devices are digitization, improved security mechanisms, clarity of operations and the need to reduce bank branches.

Criminal activities related to ATMs occur regularly. For example, in Africa, criminals managed to plant an explosive in an ATM at the gas station and blow it up.

Installing skimmers and attempting to read information from them during a transaction, often occurs in AustraliaFrance and other countries.

Recently, in the USA state of Wisconsin, criminals first tried to break into the ATM, and then simply attached it to the truck with chains and drove through the parking lot, and now the police are looking for the robbers.
