ITW Security Division has added its latest White Papers ‘Creating Trust in ID Documents’ and ‘Fraudulently Obtained Genuine (FOG) Documents’ to its website for the personal ID and secure government documents market at www.itwsecuritydivision.com.

The new Resources section on the website builds on ITW Security Division’s knowledge base and shares this with customers and visitors alike. ‘Creating Trust in ID Documents’ demonstrates how the ID industry today is at a pivotal point as the global market faces the demand of meeting the - sometimes contradictory - challenges of dealing with traditional ID documents, new technologies and the global increase in counterfeiting and fraud. Taking a step back the White Paper looks to think as one, both as members of government institutions and industry, and identify the best route forward for our future security & ID documentation.

Separately ITW Security Division’s latest White Paper ‘Fraudulently Obtained Genuine (FOG)’ discusses the issue for travel documents today, to the extent that the number of FOG documents in existence is believed to be greater than that of falsified or counterfeit documents. Such fraudulent use of identity travel documents, whether FOG, falsified or counterfeit, presents a threat to the security of countries, their citizens, the economy and global commerce as a whole facilitating both crime and terrorism. 

“ITW Security Division offers a wealth of products and services to governments and companies worldwide to enhance and protect their security documents and we wanted to share our latest thinking in our most recent White Papers to provide inspiration and ideas customers and the industry,” explains Bob Carey, ITW Security Division’s Business Unit Manager. “We work exceptionally closely with all our customers to identify the issues the industry is facing and hope to deal with these in our latest White Paper series.”
