IDnow links with Interpol to share expertise on fraud prevention

IDnow, a specialist European provider for identity proofing, has announced a significant partnership with the International Criminal Police Organisation – Interpol aimed at preventing rising fraud threats.

As part of the year-long partnership, IDnow will collaborate with law enforcers and immigration departments by providing them with a series of training programmes in Abu Dhabi later this month.

Lovro Persen, Director Document Management & Fraud at IDnow, commented: “We are thrilled to be working with Interpol to share our knowledge and expertise on the subject of fraud prevention.

“Sophisticated fraud is becoming increasingly prolific, with recent statistics from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC)revealing that 47 percent of companies had suffered at least one form of fraud in the prior 24 months, at a cost of $42 billion.

“Our partnership will help ensure relevant officials and departments have access to IDnow’s team of experts, who will be sharing important knowledge in the global fight against fraud.”

Persen will spearhead the partnership as it provides Interpol with insights into the very latest trends and case studies in the world of fraud prevention.

Based in Munich and with offices around the world, including UAE, France and the UK, IDnow provides businesses with a unified set of methods to meet every identity verification and document signing need, along with identity management services to effectively orchestrate, customize and configure the proofing process.
