  4. 4. PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOP Tuesday 28th February 2012 13.00pm – 17.30pm Sheraton Hotel, Sofia, Bulgaria Border Security & Docex: Controlling The Manipulation Of Identity Workshop leaders: Jerry Hart, Global Security RiskAnalyst, SGS Group & Gareth Evans, UK Police Service In association with UK Police ServiceOverview of workshopOne of the main challenges for any security riskenvironment is how to discourage or stop intruders whilefacilitating legitimate access. This is particularly crucial inthe border environment, where unauthorised accessthreatens not only the security of one nation and itscitizens, but also those of neighbouring and finaldestination countries.All too often, the key to illegitimate access isdocumentation that is either false, has been obtainedusing false information or has otherwise exploitedvulnerabilities in the document procurement or validationprocesses. New technologies strive to minimise the riskand maintain cost-effectiveness, yet sophisticated anddetermined attacks persist.Drawing on a range of real case studies, this half-dayinteractive workshop will conduct an in-depth andcompelling exploration of DocEx (document exploitation)issues including:• What is the difference between fake and fraudulently obtained documentation?• Who is likely to use it and how and from where do they obtain it?• What is the true extent of the risks and threats involved?• What are the strengths & weaknesses of current legal & procedural countermeasures?• What can be done to better secure borders from identity- related threats?Why you should attendThe workshop will be invaluable to law enforcement,intelligence & border security practitioners, identityauthentication & verification professionals and anyoneelse with an interest in this crucial aspect of bordersecurity.Programme12.30 Registration & coffee13.00 Introduction13.15 Interactive exercise15.00 Working break15.30 Resume & de-brief17.00 End of workshopAbout the workshop hostsJerry HartJerry Hart is a security, risk and intelligence specialistwith twenty years’ international experience of academicand commercial research, security consultancy andrelated operational activities.
