What do you see as most important drivers and detractors for the secure documents industry and your company as we move into 2015?

One of the strongest drivers for the secure documents industry is the governments’ increased willingness and readiness to enhance their document security. Here are some more of the main drivers: Enhanced border security through biometric implementations, increased travel across borders, past successful implementation history of secure documents projects

Detractors include the increased ability and technology for attackers in forging high secure documents, a lack of infrastructure in emerging markets and a long cycle, process and decisions in governments.

What are your plans for SDW 2015?

In our continuous effort to offer state-of-the-art security systems, GET GROUP will show case its leading Secure Document Issuing System (SDIS) which will eventually lead to the secure issuance of ePassports on the GET-Toppan eP600 and ID cards on the GET-Toppan CP500 Card Printer.
