Publication Educates Readers on ATM Crime and Mitigation Strategies
Heath, TX: GMR 410, a wholly owned subsidiary of GMR Protection Resources has published a white paper on ATM crime. Written by Mary Gates, Vice President of Security, this publication provides readers a description of the different types of ATM related crime, along with regulations and tactics to mitigate incidents.
“Throughout my career in bank security,” says Gates, “I found state and local regulations, types of ATM vulnerabilities and mitigation techniques, to be ever evolving and scattered across a multitude of sources and sites. With this white paper, I aimed to summarize and consolidate information in plain language so security professionals and independent ATM operators can spend less time searching the internet and other resources and more time planning their asset protection strategy.”
This white paper will help personnel:
- Better understand the different types of ATM crime
- Make decisions to impact ATM related criminal activity
- Reduce liability
More from Gates: “Security decisions impact every aspect of your business. Becoming more informed, analyzing the security needs of your individual locations, categorizing locations based on their risk, implementing enhanced security strategies where appropriate, and working towards compliance with your ATM lighting program marry together to build a safety blueprint to help protect your customers, assets and brand reputation.”

Banks and other financial institutions are faced with the critical challenge of ensuring the protection of their people, assets and information. Security Officers should utilize an ongoing assessment program to monitor and respond to changing risks and threats. Known as a Risk Assessment Program, the methodology utilized can be both facilities-based and incident-driven, considering all known sources of influencing information for the identification of risks as well as the examination of severity, frequency and operational impact. Areas of examination should include but may not be limited to: crime statistics, site incident history, neighborhood factors, nearby competitor security features, regulatory requirements and property issues. All identified risks are examined and mitigated individually with documentation maintained in department databases and reassessments driven by changes in the environment.
