Today's electronic commerce climate demands more security, since 1 in 20 Americans is at risk for identity theft. Identity authentication
is a regular part of our daily lives to protect ourselves and our proprietary information.
One of the ways to enhance security is a photo ID requirement. What you may not know is the variety of security features to prevent
duplication of your card.
Let's look at six ways to guard against ID forgery:
Holographic displays - this unique feature can be used in a couple of ways on an ID card. A custom holokote key can be programmed
for your printer. When the key is inserted into the printer, it produces a holographic overlay onto the ID card. A gold foil square called
a holopatch can also be printed on each card. The holopatch can be printed with anything, including your company logo, for added forgery
Watermarks - another unique marking, most often a logo, which lightly prints across any ID badge.
Magnetic Encoding - a programmable black or brown stripe on an ID card that when swept through a reader accesses loaded
information like account number, name, purchase history or other applicable information.
Barcodes - a feature for time and attendance use or any tracking system you choose to integrate with your ID card.
Ghost photos - make an ID one-of-a-kind with a mirror screen image of your picture
Fingerprinting - especially useful in government agencies and schools for child ID programs.
