Security Document World - Day 1: Strategies to Disrupt Identity and Document Fraud
"Understanding the potential benefits of intelligence gathered by private sector identity document checking services"
The private sector checks millions of identity documents each year. These checks are facilitated via a relatively small number of private sector specialist companies. Between them they collate a vast amount of intelligence which, until now, has been collectively ignored. Does this vast source of intelligence have any potential value to government agencies and other interested parties and if so, what could be done to make it more accessible?
