Security Printing Conference in Florida
Carrabassett Valley, ME — IMI's 8th Annual Security Printing Conference is scheduled for November 16-18, 2011 at the Hollywood Beach Marriott in Hollywood Beach (Fort Lauderdale), Florida. The conference will feature presentations from Advanced ID Detection, Austrian State Printing House, Buena Vista Resources, Forensic Document Examinations, Heidelberg USA, Imaging Supplies Coalition, InData Systems, InkSure, Lexmark International, Luminescence, Nipson, Oce, Opalux, Performance Indicator, Reconnaissance International, Regula Forensics, Schofield Imaging Associates, Sekuworks and U.S. Secret Service.

This unusual 8th Annual Security Printing Conference will bring together industry experts to address digital printing technologies' capabilities and shortcomings relative to printing secure output of all types and many new technology options available to enhance the production of secure documents, packaging, labels, IDs and products.

Robert Sherwood, Sekuworks' VP of Security Programs Management will be giving a presentation on QR code validation linked to authentication technologies during the conference.

"We are pleased to have Robert Sherwood as a presenter at this year?s conference" said Al Keene, President of IMI, "as QR codes use is exploding and Sekuworks, a leading brand protection company, has installed their system in 11 countries leveraging the power of QR codes for verification and track and trace linked to authentication."

Robert will discuss: QR 2D barcodes — the advantage of their format; linking QR codes and authentication technologies; the benefits for all stakeholders in the supply chain; how they function in the supply chain; a scalable system; verification to full supply chain tracking; where will this all go.

Sekuworks will also exhibit at the conference demonstrating its QR tracking system, DUOSECURE labels (QR/Authentication) and StratOmark (QR/Authentication/Tamper Indication) line of brand protection products and services.

With the annual worldwide economic cost of fraud, counterfeiting and piracy exceeding $650 billion dollars or 5 to 7 percent of world trade, security printing is an active and expanding business. In the U.S. alone, losses are estimated at $250 to $350 billion resulting in 250,000 lost jobs. Thus, companies and agencies are actively pursuing new technology options and security solutions to reduce these losses and recover the lost jobs. With the annual security printing industry revenues estimated to be approaching $10 billion dollars, increased efforts to reduce losses will continue to expand these revenues.
