About this event
Document fraud, specifically the counterfeiting and forgery of travel documents such as passports, represents a significant threat to everything from personal identity to national security.
The consequences of illegally modified or reproduced travel documents are many and varied. From reputational damage to the issuing country and document manufacturer, to the numerous onward possibilities, such as financial crime and terrorism, the creation and use of false travel papers can have an impact that goes far beyond personal inconvenience.
The good news is that issuing authorities now have access to a greater arsenal of deterrents and countermeasures than they ever have before. Today, passports can be equipped with a range of security features that would have been all but impossible to employ just a few decades ago. From biometric chips to optical features for security paper and polycarbonate, continual innovation in document components has created a plethora of ways to prevent or highlight illicit imitation or modification.
This Festival of Identity webinar – presented in association with the Secure Identity Alliance (SIA) – will bring together a range of experts to explore current passport fraud trends and look at some of the solutions and techniques on offer to help combat them.
Underpinning the webinar, is the launch of an in-depth SIA report into this subject. Two versions of the report are available – a public facing version and a more in-depth version for issuing and law enforcement authorities only.
