Today detection technology is used by all participants in the cash cycle to authenticate banknotes with a series of overt and covert security features. Level 1 features—those used by the public, are still not used as they should be. Level 2 security feature detectors, while providing an important layer of defense, are commercially available making the features susceptible to attack by savvy counterfeiters. It is the Level 3 security features that are the ultimate security with detection coming from Central Bank processing systems. Level 3 features are necessary for the most successful counterfeit detection program.

Tim Driscoll, CTO from Authentix, our host of this webinar, an IACA member and a company providing advanced authentication and track and trace solutions to safeguard the integrity of global commerce for governments, central banks and brand owners, has invited 2 other panelists, as seen below, to share with you key factors to consider when selecting, implementing and supporting a Level 3 feature. Matters such as: What are the desirable properties for a level 3 security feature, How does a Central Bank select the best feature, and How to successfully integrate a Level 3 feature and making it inseparable from the note, will be discussed. Each panelist will be sharing their thoughts and ideas followed by sufficient time to answer questions for the audience.

Join us and be ready to learn, hear insightful perspectives AND have your long-time questions answered regarding Level 3 security.
