Tales from the Dark Room – Current capabilities in forgery and counterfeiting
Brian Somers, Document Examiner, NDFU, UK

Introduced by: Mark Lockie, SDW 2018 Conference Co-Chair, Managing Director, Science Media Partners, Editor – Security Document World, UK

 

In spite of all of our efforts to make passports and identity documents more technologically advanced and more criminal-proof, the sad irony is that there are probably more forgers and counterfeiters in the world than ever before.

Why is this? Surely only those criminals who possess extremely specialist skills should survive in this modern marketplace.

In designing for the future we must always consider the skills of the past and the evolution which documents have gone through to get to where they are now.  Similarly, we must consider the evolution of the criminal landscape in the hope that we can start to predict the attack vectors before they happen. 

Part retrospective, part forward look, this session will use recent case studies to highlight criminal capabilities in forgery and counterfeiting, and will seek to suggest answers to this conundrum.
