What does a cashless society mean for security?
A lot has been made of the move towards cashless societies around the world. As technology has advanced there has been an inevitable streamlining of every conceivable process, and payments are certainly not exempt. Mobile, contactless and other alternative methods have seen a steep rise showing how cash is becoming less important day to day. While Canada, Sweden and the UK may be leading the charge, the reality is that, if it ever materialises, going truly cashless is decades off - the need for cash and therefore ATMs isn’t going anywhere fast.
