HID Global executives will be featured speakers at the conference
There is a growing demand for advanced
electronic ID credentials to improve citizen
experience and maintaining security levels

HID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions, will showcase the mobile ID experience on smartphones and share its latest innovations in thin secure polycarbonate e-passport datapages at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Machine Readable Travel Documents (MRTD) Conference, October 14 through 16, 2015, in Montreal. HID Global executives will be featured speakers at the conference.

HID Global will display its broad offering of government credentials and citizen ID solutions in Booth #2 at the conference, with a special focus on ICAO compliance challenges and how to meet them. The highlight is a thin polycarbonate electronic datapage at the heart of today’s high-security e-passports. HID Global’s new datapages are among the industry’s thinnest, which reduces e-passport thickness, provides increased flexibility, or provides the additional room needed to add more security features on both sides of the datapage to prevent duplication while still complying with ICAO standards.

“We’re seeing a growing global demand for more advanced electronic ID credentials as governments look to improve the citizen experience while maintaining the highest levels of security through ICAO compliance,” said Joseph Pearson, Vice President of Government ID Solutions Sales, North America with HID Global. “As an industry leader in secure identity solutions, we find that conferences such as ICAO provide us with the excellent opportunity to share the latest advancements in our ICAO-compliant datapage offerings for thinner and more flexible e-passport documents. ICAO is also an ideal venue for showcasing to attendees the latest evolution in mobile identity for smartphones.”

HID Global Executives Will Also Be Featured Speakers In Two Sessions At The ICAO Conference:

  • “Change is coming: Virtualization and Travel Documents.” Rob Haslam, vice president of Government ID Solutions with HID Global, will highlight important principles that are driving policy discussion and development so that mobile driver licenses and other mobile government identities will meet the needs of users, issuing agencies, law enforcement, and other stakeholders who rely on secure IDs for a wide range of purposes.  Tuesday, October 13, 2015, during the welcome reception from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

  • "What governments want: Developments in durability, datapage solutions and beyond." Jorge Castrillo, senior sales director of Government ID Solutions with HID Global, will describe the key secure polycarbonate electronic datapage attributes required to meet the needs posed by rapid growth in the demand for e-passports and e-IDs made from these materials. Thursday, October 15, 2015, from 10:20 a.m. to 10:40 a.m. during the solutions oriented workshop.
