protect your atms

Rivial has learned through our threat monitoring that ATM malware attacks are spreading and we need all of our partners to take action to ensure they are protected against these new threats.


Here are 4 Steps to Protect Your ATMs:


1. Ensure ATMs are physically secured, difficult to open, and cannot be accessed using a universal key or default passcode.

2. Upgrade ATM operating systems if they are still running Windows XP.

3. Update IT Risk Assessment details to reflect this changing threat (this will be done for current Rivial IT Risk Assessment clients)

4. Perform a PCI self-assessment on your ATM infrastructure and other systems with cardholder data
