Up-to-date subjects and good content. Good agenda and excellent dinner and party on Tuesday night. I enjoyed not only seeing old friends and acquaintances, but also finding new opportunities to improve my plant with what I saw and learnt about, such as up-to-date processes and new ideas.

Excellent!! Taking part in this conference we have found very good presenters in each development. Furthermore, we fed on information with regard to the role of security and public documents in technology and fewer formats.

The event has met my expectations and has even provided me with very useful information to be more careful in the implementation of security in the Tax Department. It is also a good event to meet interesting suppliers in the security industry.

About High Security Printing Latin America

The Regional Forum for Secure Document Technologies

The latest technologies and techniques in the production and issue of banknotes, ePassports, ID cards, visas and other secure documents across Latin America.

The High Security Printing™ conferences are annual events with a specficially regional focus.  They cover government-specified and issued documents,including currency, fiduciary documents, excise stamps, ID cards, e-passports, visas, vehicle documents and licences, with a particular emphasis on banknotes and emerging technologies for ID and travel documents. Running in tandem with each event is a trade exhibition of 30-40 companies supplying technologies and systems for these sectors.

High Security Printing Asia has been held each year since 2002, and the High Security Printing™ EMEA since 2004.

Latin America, however,  is growing in importance – not just as a future economic powerhouse but, in the context of government documents, as a market for high security printing. Many of the countries are becoming key innovators in  specification, procurement and distribution – serving not only their own growing economies but  the wider region too. In recognition of this importance, Reconnaissance held the High Security Printing™ Latin America conference in July 2012 – the first ever event of its kind to address the needs, issues, challenges and opportunities for specifiers and producers of government documents  in the region and annually since then.

Why you Should Attend?

The success of the High Security Printing™ Conferences is based on being:

  • Regional: Convenient and accessible, with many of the topics specific to the issues and challenges of the region itself.
  • Technical: A particular emphasis is placed on innovative and emerging technologies for document protection, reinforced by the two workshops, which delve much deeper into their specific subjects to give a practical, hands-on and detailed understanding.
  • Medium-sized: With around 250-300 delegates and a trade show of 35 or so exhibitors, the conference is sufficiently intimate that you can easily meet the people you plan to while also making new contacts and finding new products and opportunities.
  • Value for Money: Financially-attractive, offering value for all categories – sponsors, exhibitors, and delegates – with additionally special rates for government and regional delegates.

Programme

Seminars

Monday 3 June 2024

09:00 – 13:00 – Tax Stamp & Traceability Seminar – International Tax Stamp Association (ITSA)

Led by Nicola Sudan, ITSA and Francisco Mandiola, FMA Secure

Join ITSA for a discussion on current developments and best practices in the world of tax stamp and track and trace systems for tobacco, alcohol, cannabis and other products subject to excise, customs and other taxes.

The seminar will include presentations from government tax authorities and solution providers and will be of especial interest to those authorities in the region looking to introduce tax stamp and traceability for the first time, or upgrade existing programmes.

Speakers are:

  • Veronica Davila Villavicencio – Internal Revenue Service, Ecuador
  • Stefaan D’Hoore – Luminescence Sun Chemical Security
  • Tim McIntyre – Canadian Bank Note Company
  • Nicola Sudan – ITSA
  • Tim Driscoll – Authentix
  • Claudio Pino – SICPA
  • Carolina Saravia – Chile Tax Authority
  • Jorge Daniel Minoso Compres – Cadenza Group
  • Juan Pablo Garcia – Panama Customs
  • Francisco Mandiola – FMA Secure

14:00 – 17:00 – Identity – The Emerging Behaviour of Fraudsters in the Modern World – The Obstacles in Future-Proofing Document Design

Michael van Gestel, Onfido (UK) and Claudio Perez, Entrust

The digital revolution is here to stay. Consumers, and therefore governments and corporations, demand self-service, and with it, remote document authentication at scale. With recent advances in AI, fraudsters have access to better tooling, and limitless source material.

In this seminar, we will take a deep dive into the statistics and findings of Onfido’s 2024 Identity Fraud Report; in particular, the emerging behaviour of fraudsters in the modern world. We will look at the current methodology employed by organised fraud rings, the importance of document design in their approaches, and potential solutions.

09:00 – 17:00 – Currency – The Future of Cash

Led by Antti Heinonen and Guillaume Lepecq, CashEssentials

The debate around the evolution of money is primarily dominated by technology and the underlying assumption that the digitalisation of money is inevitable and desirable. Technology has been the main driver behind this digitalisation, and while it comes with undeniable benefits in terms of convenience and efficiency, it also generates high social costs.

The objective of this seminar is to broaden the discussion on the future of money. How can we create a monetary system which challenges the narrative of a future dominated by technological innovation? How can we create a future monetary landscape which improves inclusion, increases sustainability, reinforces resilience and protects privacy?

The seminar will focus on understanding the changing cash environment and what stakeholders are doing to optimise the cash ecosystem and ensure the future viability and sustainability of cash. It brings together all stakeholders to discuss new strategies for shaping the cash ecosystem of the future.

The seminar will address three key questions:

  • How can stakeholders – central banks, banknote printers, cash management companies, banks, fintechs… – contribute to shape a viable and sustainable cash ecosystem in an increasingly uncertain environment?
  • Is cash a public good? Or a basic right? If so, what are the policy implications in terms of access and acceptance, resilience and the funding of the cash cycle?
  • What can we learn for the global evolution of cash demand?

In addition, Round Table Conversations will offer the opportunity to debate the burning questions, ranging from declining transactional demand for cash; the need for a more resilient cash cycle in a multi-crisis environment or the loss of privacy in a less-cash environment. Participants will be invited to deploy their collective intelligence to assess and discuss some of the key challenges and opportunities facing the future of cash.
