In the current security landscape, there is an increased need for law enforcement agencies to have access to relevant, useful and timely information, while at the same time guaranteeing that basic principles of privacy are maintained. INTERPOL actively pursues solutions that help identify, prevent and disrupt global threats to the security of countries and their citizens. Some of those threats are linked to criminal activities involving false and fraudulent identity and travel documents.
This presentation will describe INTERPOL’s role and its response to document fraud, including some of the existing tools and the latest developments in this fast-evolving environment. These include new automated data-sharing systems and other solutions that address technological and logistical challenges while enhancing and integrating border security procedures.
