Flash Talk: EMV Circumvention

Flash Talks is an exclusive Flashpoint speaker series where our analysts share insights from the Deep & Dark Web and examine today's increasingly complex threat landscape.



As EMV (Europay, MasterCard, and Visa) security measures become more widespread in Europe and North America, cybercriminals are increasingly crafting techniques to circumvent, or bypass, this technology. In a follow-up to Flashpoint's March 2017 Flash Talk on EMV skimming, Cybercrime Analyst Olivia Rowley discusses new methods cybercriminals are employing to bypass EMV protections when conducting in-store fraudulent transactions.

Methods covered will include:
 •  The "Punch" method
 •  NFC (Near Field Contact) smartphone technology for conducting in-store fraud
 •  Use of "1 Dip" chip cards, praised by cybercriminals for speeding up fraudulent transactions
