Plenary __ Currency and identity: preparing for the future

The world is evolving and so is our industry. Our products are used in every single country across the globe. They are the foundation of our ecosystem. Will they be sustained? Counterfeiting and fraud are still very real problems. But we do have effective ways to respond, to make sure criminals never have the upper hand. With the advent of new payment technologies, digitalisation and artificial intelligence, where is our industry heading?

 
Thursday 25/03/2021 - Morning

Session 1 __ Digital payment ecosystems – evolution or revolution?

Digital payments have been part of our landscape for many years. They have evolved to the point where they have become a viable and widely used supplement to cash. What are the risks and opportunities associated with digital payments vs. cash? This session will explore technical solutions for digital currency, the role of private organisations and central banks as issuing authorities, as well as the regulation of such transactions by central banks.

Session 2 __ Opportunities and challenges associated with Entry/Exit Systems

With increasing travel and migration, numerous economic areas around the world are updating their border management systems. This session will look into the latest advancements in Entry/Exit technologies, the enrolment of biometrics and verification of travel documents, and recent system implementations.

 

Session 3 __ Smart solutions in currency production

The need to continuously modernise and increase the efficiency of the processes used in currency production and circulation is critical to the success of the industry. The improvement of forecasting, quality, cost and throughput increasingly relies on digital solutions. What new skill sets are needed in manufacturing and cash handling? How can data analytics and big data be used? And how do they impact on demand and production?

Session 4 __ Old dog – New tricks: new security features and new forms of identification

Physical ID documents are the foundation of our identity ecosystem. Staying ahead of counterfeiting is driving industry to develop new, even more secure, overt and covert features for traditional documents as well as alternative forms of identity tokens. Such documents and tokens can be used in situations beyond border control.

 
Thursday 25/03/2021 - Afternoon

Session 5 __ Sustainability in currency: contribution to a greener world

All industries must reduce their environmental footprint. So must ours. This is driving new processes and procedures into daily use: greener production, raw materials, logistics, intelligent distribution, energy generation/consumption, and waste management. Do these improve the sustainability of cash compared to electronic payments and to what extent?

Session 6 __ State of the art in morphing and presentation attack detection

Who am I? And how many of me are there? Advanced morphing technologies present new challenges for governments seeking to identify ID document holders reliably. With so many research initiatives underway, this session will focus on the state-of-the-art in detecting morphing and other presentation attacks.

 

Session 7 __ Access to cash: challenges and new approaches

Cash is a universally used form of payment. How can we ensure it remains accessible for transactions that can also be conducted electronically? This session will present case studies from central banks, cash-in-transit companies, technology providers, ATM pooling, and points of sale.

Session 8 __ Digital Travel Credentials – the next era of identification?

Enabling a seamless travel continuum, facilitating travel movements, and streamlining border control are at the core of digital travel initiatives. A digital travel credential (DTC) can be created to include accurate traveller identity data and issued in parallel to, or in place of, a physical ePassport. This session will consider the benefits of and issues associated with DTCs.

Session 9 __ Motivation for innovation: what’s new in banknotes?

To stay ahead of counterfeiters, central banks keep introducing banknote series with improved security architecture. This session will feature new banknotes and review the latest security features and design techniques.

Session 10 __ The latest in counterfeiting technologies

From desktop scanners to quantum computing, modern identity documents seem to be evet more at risk. What are the latest threats and are there any effective countermeasures being developed?

 

Panel __ Sustainability in the banknote and identity document industry

Sustainable best practices for the printing and production of banknotes & ID documents can have a positive impact in many ways: increased efficiencies, less waste, cost savings, and conserving resources. Industry leaders on this panel will discuss the latest innovations in sustainable manufacturing in use today, as well as provide a vision for future enhancements that will reduce their impact on the environment.
