The four-day workshop will take place Monday afternoon, June 11th through Thursday morning, June 14th, 2018 on the RIT campus in Rochester, NY.

Counterfeiting is now the world’s largest criminal enterprise accounting for an estimated $1.7 trillion a year in losses, according to the International Anti-Counterfeiting Coalition.  A variety of technologies are available to both brands and governments to protect intellectual property. Understanding available technology and how it applies to specific problems is a challenge for many decision makers.  The Document Security & Packaging Technology Workshop was started to provide an academic based resource to examine the tools and technologies outside of the influence of marketing or sales efforts.  

In this four-day seminar, instructors will closely look at emerging technologies in covert, overt, forensic level solutions and also provide networking opportunities with other professionals in the field from around the world. The workshop will review technologies for product counterfeiting, document fraud, currency manipulation, and print fraud. Attendees will learn about security inks, holograms, taggants, authentication tools, and hear from presenters with Document Security Systems, SICPA, Appvion, NASPO INTERNATIONAL, DSA, among others.
