Program Announced for ATM & Payment Security 2017



South Dakota, USA & London, United Kingdom – ATMIA today launched its conference programme for the industry body’s 17th consecutive annual ATM security event, called ATM & Payment Security 2017.

“Since we personally founded this international ATM security conference back in 2001, it has grown from strength to strength each year to become the most original, authentic, largest and most important security summit in the industry,” said Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA. “For our 20th anniversary year, ATMIA has put together the strongest speaker line up at a security event in our industry in recent times.”

“ATM & Payments Security 2017” takes place between 19th–20th September 2017 at the Tower Hotel, London. Organisations and regulatory bodies confirmed as speaking include: the European Central Bank,

Kaspersky Lab (Europe), Citibank, Reserve Bank of Australia, LINK Interchange Network, EURICPA, Microsoft, Spinnaker, TMD, Dutch Payments Association, MasterCard International, Access Cash, ATMIA, UL, Oberthur, SICPA, Smartwater Technology, The Royal Mint, DFR Risk Management Ltd, International Currency Association, AGIS Consulting, Secure Remote Payment Council (USA), ThetaRay and RBCG.

“As a not-for-profit trade association and as the only international ATM industry body, ATMIA’s events plough proceeds from our conferences, including this one, right back into our tireless, year-long ATM industry work, including advocacy, education, security best practices and important security committee work,” Lee added. “Since we’ve been at the forefront of global ATM security for well over a decade, we can claim to be presenting the true and original industry security summit. Other security events cannot match this USP nor our track record in providing security best practices for all levels of ATM protection since 2003.”
