State Regulators, Law Enforcement, and Industry Remain Vigilant Against Skimming Devices


PMCI has partnered with Shazam to provide PMCI members an education opportunity to learn about the latest developments in industry’s effort to protect our businesses, and our customer’s personal information, against criminal enterprises that have shown a willingness to do whatever it takes to obtain it. Presenting on behalf of Shazam on Wednesday, September 13, at the 2017 Energy Conference will be Mike Burke, Robbery and Crisis Management Consultant with SHAZAMNETWORK, INC. Mr. Burke’s full speaker biography can be viewed here.

With over 85% of all payment transactions occurring at retail motor fuel outlets taking place using an electronic payment method, the retail fuel industry has been a primary target for the placement of skimming devices. The target on our industry is heightened by our focus on convenience and the accessibility of the motor fuel dispensers located in the forecourt of our retail sites. Over the last year, independent efforts between state regulators and law enforcement have uncovered more than 20 skimming devices located inside of retail motor fuel dispensers. Moreover, regulators have uncovered numerous instances where pumps appeared to have been tampered with and the skimming device likely already removed. Additional skimming devices have also been uncovered within carwashes, ATM’s, and outdoor movie dispensing devices.

Cyber-Security and the protection of our customer’s personal payment card information will remain at the forefront of industry challenges for the foreseeable future. Join us at the Energy Conference in Des Moines on Wednesday, September 13, as we look to educate ourselves on the evolving threat that skimming devices and other cyber-threats pose to our business and customers.
