INTERGRAF CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP
INTERGRAF CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP
Marc Been holds a Bsc. degree from Rotterdam HES where he studied Management, Economy and Law and Erasmus University where he studied private law.
He started his career in 1999 working for a supplier of offset printing machines in The Netherlands. In 2002 he joined an international supplier of graphic materials where he was responsible for all marketing business.
He is managing director of VPGI Certification since 2011, which is mainly active in the security printing industry.
Due to his experience in security printing Marc was elected as convenor of ISO/TC130/WG10 in September 2011. He is responsible for ISO 14298, management of security printing processes. Beside this he also consults national banks in improving their security risk management processes and is participating in building projects for security companies.
Since graduating from university with a BSc honours degree in chemistry, Andrew has always worked in manufacturing industries, initially formulating and testing engineering lubricants and coatings before moving into security printing, where he has remained for the past 22 years.
As Senior Compliance Manager for the Cartor Security Print Group, located in the UK and France, Andrew is currently responsible for ensuring that the management systems for quality, environment, FSC chain-of-custody, health & safety and security all operate effectively in order to meet certification requirements, regulatory obligations, operational objectives and stakeholder expectations. Aligned with this role, Andrew also oversees the development and implementation of the business continuity arrangements across both Cartor sites.
His long experience within the same organisation has enabled a significant amount of involvement with customers, suppliers and strategic business partners on a range of technical and compliance projects.
More recently, Andrew has felt proud serve as a member of the Intergraf Security Experts Working Group, with the objective of making positive contributions to the development of the Intergraf standards and security print industry certification more widely.
Internal audits serve as a cornerstone for maintaining the integrity, transparency, and operational efficiency of an organization. These audits are a systematic and objective assessment of an organization's processes, controls, and financial systems, carried out by an independent team within the organization. A well-executed internal audit not only helps in identifying potential risks and areas for improvement but also enhances the overall governance and accountability within the organization. Andrew will shed more light on the efficient conduct of internal audits.

Edward Saguna graduated from the University of Malta as a Mechanical Engineer (B.Mech.Eng. Hons.) and followed this with an MSc in Product and Process Development.
After working for eight years in the heavily regulated medical device industry, he moved to De La Rue in 2008.
Between 2008 and 2012, Edward led various teams in the areas of Plant Engineering, Project Management and Continuous Improvement.
In 2012 he took up the Security, Risk and Compliance Manager at the De La Rue Malta security printing facility (banknotes and passports).
Since 2016 he has taken various responsibilities within the De La Rue Group Head Office in the UK, including the role as Security, HSE & Risk Manager at De La Rue’s manufacturing facility in the UK, a facility that is managed on behalf of the Bank of England.
In his current role (Group Head of Compliance & Governance), Edward is responsible for all matters of compliance and governance in physical security, transportation security, information security, business continuity, anti-bribery and corruption. Edward is De La Rue’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
Risk analysis and treatment is at the heart of all security activities; decreasing risk levels, driving improvements and, when applied within a management system, delivering a strong security culture. Yet, for many organisations, the risk assessment is a tick-box exercise that is only done because it is a requirement for certification or to win a contract, providing no value and failing to drive necessary change.
During this session we will understand how to identify and analyse threats converting them into risks that we can quantify, prioritise, and address. We will explore how the context of the organisation, performance and strategy influence the process and how a living risk assessment brings the security management system alive. The session will include a practical workshop that facilitates a thorough understanding of the subjects covered.

The Hologram Image Register (HIR) is a secure register of holographic images, established by the IHMA to safeguard hologram copyright and underpin the use of holograms in security printing. IHMA members register the holograms they produce on behalf of their customers – establishing a record of who makes it, when it was first made and who is using it, benefiting both the holder of the copyright in the hologram and its user. The HIR is operated for the IHMA by the Counterfeiting Intelligence Bureau, a division of the International Chamber of Commerce, a not-for-profit non-governmental organisation accredited by the UN. The Register is operated in absolute confidence by the CIB. Neither IHMA members nor staff have access to the Register, thereby ensuring that commercial information is not compromised.
To date, over 10,000 holograms have been registered with the HIR and the HIR has helped to uncover and prevent several cases of attempted counterfeiting. This presentation will look at how the HIR has evolved over the years, how it’s managed, what is its value to our industry and crucially, with the changes the industry’s seen in the last decade or so in particular, what is the next generation for the HIR.
