SIA publishes new paper on establishing strong identity at borders

June 19, 2017 - 

The Secure Identity Alliance (SIA) has published its “Strong Identity, Strong Borders” paper that provides agencies and governments with a best practice guide to the design and implementation of effective eBorder strategies.

The white paper addresses efficient border management by discussing the technologies, processes and components that play an integral role in developing a fully interconnected eBorder strategy.

Containing references and real-world case studies from emerging and mature deployments, the report provides agencies and governments with deep insights and best practices as they work towards the goal of delivering safer, standardized and more effective borders.

The non-partisan consultative document includes several contributions from members of the SIA and others.

“Countries around the world are increasingly looking to make best use of available resources at physical borders and other critical transit checkpoints, utilizing solutions that support information sharing and address threats early – without impacting legitimate travelers,” said Frédéric Trojani, chairman of the board at Secure Identity Alliance. “From integrating pre-arrival risk assessment to facilitate the fast processing of travelers who pose a low risk, to biometrics that make it easy to automate immigration controls and assure the privacy of citizens, the race is on to eliminate inefficient practices and use technology to streamline and fortify border security operations.”

The SIA will join the panel for the discussion “Entry/Exit: Stronger, smarter borders for a changing world” on June 26 at SDW 2017 conference and exhibition in London.

The organization will also host the “Strong Identity, Strong Borders” workshop on July 5 at INTERPOL World 2017, held in Singapore from July 4-7.
