“Innovative financial institutions are already starting to integrate their mobile application into the ATM process to improve convenience and enhance security. When you can no longer access funds, or perhaps just a limited amount, without your mobile phone physically present at the ATM, then these types of attacks will become far less rewarding to hackers.”[/su_note]

“For card users, the best protection is always the close monitoring of their accounts. There are many ways in which card information can be stolen. Recently, card skimmers have been found in gas pumps in California.”[/su_note]
