In the same period, FICO reported an increase in the number of ATMs and point-of-sale devices (+21%) in the US.
One year ago, FICO reported a 30 percent increase in compromised devices for 2016, compared to 2015, and a 70 percent rise in cards compromised for that period. These figures are related to payment card fraud occurring at physical devices, not online card fraud.
