Onfido partners with INTERPOL

06/03/19

Identity verification company Onfido has announced it is partnering with INTERPOL (The International Criminal Police Organization) to provide a 3-day training course to government officials from Southeast Asia to help them better detect fraudulent identity documents.

Participants will include government officials such as police, border control agents, and immigration officials from the INTERPOL member countries: Cambodia, Laos, Philippines and Vietnam.

The 3-day programme (March 12-14) taking place in Manila, will focus on the mechanical (intaglio, offset, letterpress, screen printing) and digital printing techniques (inkjet, laser, thermal transfer, laser engraving) used to create identity documents and how fraudsters emulate them using commercially available technologies. The course will educate attendees on the latest security features embedded in official government IDs and provide practical exercises that teach tried and tested methods for identifying various fraudulent documents including counterfeits, forgeries, fantasy and fraudulently obtained documents.

Onfido’s fraud team led by former Dutch government immigration ID expert, Michael Van Gestel, will provide an introduction to fraud, explaining various digital attack vectors and how to overcome them. The team will showcase the difference between 3D and 2D document checks and cover a range of additional topics including: imaging techniques to augment decision-making, attack vector trends, sophisticated attacks, imposter detection and the Glasgow Test, and outline currently known vulnerabilities.

 

"Onfido is excited to be teaming up with INTERPOL, the world’s largest international police organization, to bring our combined industry knowledge and fraud expertise to government officials across Southeast Asia,” said Michael Van Gestel, Fraud and Document Expert atOnfido. “As criminals get more sophisticated in designing new attack vectors, there has never been a more important time to unify our knowledge of both 3D and 2D document authentication and share this in a unique training course."
