Stay One Step Ahead of Skimming Attacks

Be on the lookout, and stay one step ahead of criminals.  Protect all access points and card readers!

ALERT: There has been an increase in card skimming attacks at ATMs and ATM Vestibules across the USA. The trend likely is being fueled by the coming migration away from magnetic-stripe technology to contact EMV.

ATM manufacturers are making sure that ATM card readers are protected, and criminals know this – but what about the card reader at your ATM Vestibule? This is where skimming devices are now frequently placed.

DID YOU KNOW? ATM Vestibules that lack Parabit’s ATM Card Entry Access Control System are prime locations for criminals to install an ATM Card Skimmer (and then place a PIN capture device on the ATM).

Where Security Meets Innovation: Why Parabit’s Work in Self-Service Solutions is Important for Improving Security

Parabit Systems, Inc., founded in 1995, counts 17 of the top 20 U.S. banks as our clients.  We provide ATM lobby card access control systems that detect skimming attempts.  Additionally, Parabit offers surveillance technology to enhance ATM and Bank security, from DVR Systems to specialty cameras, such as the Teller/Transaction camera, Doorway Camera, and our dual Drive-Up camera for face and license plate image capture.  Alarm panels and ATM Access Control can be remotely monitored with our proprietary software, as well.

Doorway Camera, Transaction Camera, and Drive Up Camera.

So why does Parabit, a company known for creative, innovative self-service solutions, also maintain its work in the security business? “Unfortunately, the world is not becoming a safer place,” says President and Founder Robert Leiponis.  Parabit’s trusted relationships with Banks is what led to the implementation of security and self-service solutions in other industries as well.  Where there is a demand, Parabit will fill the supply to make Banks, Campuses, Corporate Buildings, Educational Facilities, Healthcare Facilities/Hospitals, Retail Establishments, and Airports/Transportation Hubs safer and more secure.

In the ever changing banking security landscape, Parabit is at the forefront of keeping up with needs.  The SkimGard reader, for example, is one of a kind, and has deterred and detected thousands of skimming attempts at top banks.  You can see a demonstration of Parabit’s ACS-1E Card Access Reader and SkimGard next month at ISC West.

Other security solutions include Building Access Control, Emergency Telephones, and a Light Monitor that detects low-light conditions and sends an alert.

So the questions remains – how do Self-Service solutions improve Security?

Mechanical, Electrical, and Information Technology engineers should ensure self-service products (such as Kiosks, AVAs, and Courtesy Phones) are deployed efficiently, professionally, and provide the backbone for additional security solutions, such as cameras that record activities and transactions.

Parabit’s Self-Service solutions provide a safe, efficient, and trackable interaction for information finding, way-finding, and communication.  They also enhance customer perceptions and professionalism in any environment, which leads to deterring crime.  Research into criminal behavior shows that the decision to offend or not to offend is more influenced by cues to the perceived risk of being caught than by cues to reward or ease of entry.

By creating a self-service landscape that ALSO provides surveillance is an aspect of natural surveillance that is a factor to deter crimes.

Solutions experts at Parabit Systems are available to speak with daily, at your convenience.  CONTACT US directly for more information on our innovative approach to self-service and security.

Webinar: Best Practices for WayFinding and Passenger Experience Enhancing Solutions at Airports

 

AIRPORT IMPROVEMENT MAGAZINE is hosting a free webinar and panel discussion among four top experts in airport improvement next month: Ralph Tragale Assistant Director of Aviation, Port Authority NY/NJ, Mark  Stuckey VP of Special Projects and Development, Sarasota-Bradenton Int’l Airport, Rob Leiponis President, Parabit Systems, and Paul Bowers (moderator), Publisher, Airport Improvement Magazine .  The topic: Best Practices for WayFinding and Passenger Experience Enhancing Solutions at Airports.

This is the first time Airport Improvement Magazine has hosted a webinar with the Port Authority of NY/NJ.  Audiences are anticipating an inside glimpse into the branding and implementation of the Port Authority’s now-famous “Customer Care” program, which has re-vamped the branding and efficiency of Airport Terminals and transportation hubs.  Facts about the Port Authority’s airports and the success of their customer surveys will be examined.

Parabit Systems has been the go-to service provider for the Port Authority since the start of the Customer Care re-branding, offering affordable, long-lasting public deployment solutions, from Welcome Centers to Charging Stations to the famous Customer Care Avatar. The pros and cons of working with a single provider will ne examined.  From site surveys, to installation, to mitigating electrical cost, Parabit has worked with several regional and international airports to improve the passenger experience, increase efficient, and reducing risk.

  • Six out of 10 airports are placing key tech investment on improvement of passenger services
  • Technology investment impacted by pervasiveness of mobile communications
  • Through 2017, 80% of airports are set to invest in mobile and self-service solutions
    (source: Airports Council International February 2015 World Report)

With the Aviation industry investing in passenger improvement services, especially Mobile and Self-Service solutions, it is no wonder that airports such as Sarasota-Bradenton have made significant strides to enhance terminals with mobile device charging kiosks (also manufactured by Parabit).  Webinar attendees will be able to hear, first hand from the VP of  Special Projects and Development, how to look for the right solution, and what it takes to implement them, from finances to installation.

It is especially prevalent for smaller airports to stay competitive.  Mr. Stuckey of Sarasota-Bradenton knows this first hand, and will discuss his plans to create an airport that passengers prefer.

This webinar will be a “how-to” guide for implementing Passenger Enhancing Solutions at the modern airport, and will also look at the revolutionary step in integrating Flight Information Displays (FIDs) with WayFinding, just as Parabit was able to do at the Port Authority Bus Terminals.

This event is a not-to-be-missed discussion from top industry experts.  There will be time devoted to a Q&A forum as well.

Interested participants should register using the link below since space is limited and this webinar is in high demand.
