This thesis summarizes the work of a project conducted in the past year which was organized in cooperation with the University of Public Service. The goal of the project was to build a set of educational materials and to create a lab environment which is capable of demonstrating the most common information technology security attacks against cash machines or otherwise known as ATMs. This will be used to educate police officers at the International Training Centre.

During the research which preceded the project four common attack methods were identified which are actively used by criminals: skimmer devices, black box devices, malware and network attacks. Using the two test ATMs located at the International Training Centre all four of these were reproduced and a package was created which can be reused for demonstration.

This thesis details the research conducted prior to the project, the technical solutions designed durin the project, their implementations, results and plans for demonstration.
