IDnow and INTERPOL team up for fraud prevention training
IDnow’s biometrics experts will organize a series of fraud prevention training events for law enforcement and immigration officers in different parts of the world, starting with the capital of the United Arab Emirates , Abu Dhabi, at the end of the current month.
This training is possible thanks to a recently forged partnership between the proof of identity provider and the international police organization (INTERPOL), according to a press release. The primary objective of the training is to equip selected Interpol personnel with some of the latest techniques and case studies regarding global fraud prevention efforts.
The partnership program, the statement mentions, is led by IDnow, director of document management and fraud, Lovro Persen, who has 24 years of local and international experience in the field of identity management and fraud.
Reacting to the partnership, Persen said, “We are delighted to work with Interpol to share our knowledge and expertise in fraud prevention. Sophisticated fraud is becoming increasingly prolific, with recent statistics from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) revealing that 47% of companies had experienced at least one form of fraud in the previous 24 months, at a cost of $42 billion. Our partnership will help ensure that relevant managers and departments have access to IDnow’s team of experts, who will share important knowledge in the global fight against fraud.
IDnow recently announced the introduction of My IDnow, a unified biometric identification toolkit to enable more secure and seamless customer onboarding processes.
INTERPOL has also sealed similar partnerships in the recent past on different training initiatives with other biometric providers such as NEC, Idemia and Onfido.
In January, the organization trained Cameroonian police personnel to identify terrorism suspects through the collection of biometric data as part of the country’s security preparation ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations that she hosted earlier this year.
