Establishing Chain of Trust

Creating a chain of trust using unique identity solutions – Video 1

Insights from Smart Borders 2014

In a world that operates from a position of distrust, establishing trust is complex. For the traveller, it may mean queues and delays as border controls seek to verify information in real time, every time. Collecting biometrics incurs a cost that is often more than countries, airports—and travellers, in terms of time—can afford.

Watch Mark Crego, global managing director, Accenture Border and Identity Services share insights on the rewards and returns of creating a chain of trust using unique identity solutions.

Insights from Smart Borders 2013

Challenges and Opportunities

In this video, hear from speakers at the Smart Borders 2013 event including Ger Daly, global managing director, Defence & Public Safety, providing their views on the challenges and opportunities of the Smart Borders initiative and what this ultimately means for the traveller.

In February 2013, the European Commission launched the EU Smart Border Package, with the intention "to simplify life for frequent third country travellers at the EU's external borders, enhance EU security and contribute to better monitoring of border to crossings". Focusing on this package and on specific proposals to develop an EU Entry-Exit System and the Registered Traveller Programme, the 2013 Smart Borders conference provided an opportunity to hear from leading policymakers and decision makers directly involved in its formulation and implementation.

Collaborative Border Management

Collaborative Border Management (CBM) can have a significant impact on border and customs agencies currently facing increased pressures and expectations. It not only makes compliance easier and more attractive, but also facilitates shared information which encourages win-win relationships. This point of view sets out to shows how collaborative border management can have a positive impact on both:

  • Travellers: By facilitating legitimate travellers before and throughout their trip, while letting security, immigration and customs agencies identify and appropriately address high-risk travellers and baggage.

  • Cargo: For example, by managing goods clearance through optimised processes that use a single window in conjunction with a back-office processing system to provide a single view of the customer.

Hear from Mark Crego, global lead, Border and Identity Management, Accenture, on delivering smart and secure borders in Europe and the role of Collaborative Border Management.
