Morning – Identity

Digitizing Identity: Benefits and Risks Highlighted by the Current Regulatory Landscape

In this interactive workshop we will provide the context of international remote identity verification and will compare and contrast different global approaches and how they impact user experience, fraud detection and document design.

This session is designed to bring together specialists from different fields to brainstorm problems and present their proposed solutions. All of the attendees will focus on distinct problems and highlight their insights for the benefit of all the participants.

Morning – Sustainability

Reducing Environmental Impact

Sustainability has become a high profile topic for good reasons.  This seminar will look at what producers of cash and coins and what cash management stakeholders can do to reduce the environmental impact of their operations and the cash cycle.  The aim of these talks, given in a workshop format to allow discussion and exchanges of views and information, is to share best practice and to provide examples which others might want to consider doing.  They will include what has been done, and with what results, and how the organisations approached making these changes.

Given the role of central banks in shaping the environment and setting the agenda for the cash industry, there will also be a panel discussion with central banks about the priority they place on sustainability, their ambitions for it and the changes they would like to see.

Wherever you are on your journey to sustainability, this session aims to give food for thought about new opportunities to do things differently. 

Afternoon – Identity

Going Inside Counterfeiting Print Shops

What would you expect to find inside a counterfeiting print shop? Using open source intelligence, this interactive seminar will develop your understanding of the equipment and materials used in counterfeiting operations and train you to identify them in media reports. It will be demonstrated that this approach can be useful for counterfeit analysis without having access to the counterfeits. This seminar will be of interest to delegates who have responsibility for examining and processing counterfeits or developing security features.

Afternoon – Sustainability

Waste Not, Want Not – New Solutions to Support the Circular Economy’

Whilst the partner seminar: ‘Reducing Environmental Impact’ looks at what producers and distributors of documents of value can do to reduce the environmental impact of their operations – ‘Waste Not, Want Not’ explores the adaptation and application of authentication and track and trace technologies to the developing circular economy.

As the name implies, a circular economy (CE) extends the traditional notions of operations management to include production, consumption, reuse and waste management.

The seminar will focus on the beginning and end of the CE (if that’s possible for a circle) – ethical sourcing and waste management. Many of the issues faced in developing and sustaining the CE are bound into identifying where materials have come from and where goods, after their useful life, are going to. These topics are familiar to many companies involved in the security and identity industries, but which provide new opportunities for their solutions beyond the conventional applications for brand protection, track and trace and authentication.

The seminar is arranged to look at waste management first and then, after the break, ethical sourcing. The first part will open with an introduction into what waste management is, in context of CE, and what role technology plays in this area.

The session will continue with presentations from companies within the secure document industry on their vision for the circular economy, and how their solutions are supporting this.

After a short break, the seminar will look at the important role that secure documentation and traceability are playing in supporting the move towards ethical sourcing. Blood diamonds, child labour, deforestation, supply chain transparency and verifiable provenance are just some of the topics open to discussion.
