Wim Tappij Gielen

Senior Vice President – Datacard

Speaks at ID WORLD on Future of ID

Wim Tappij Gielen is Senior Vice President at Datacard and has the responsibility for Sales and Service globally. As one of the pioneers in the card industry in the Netherlands, he started his career in 1969 developing card related solutions for the banking, retail and health care industry. With the growth of the card industry, ID related projects became a key element of his day to day business. In 1981 he joined DeLaRue and became the MD for their card operations in The Netherlands and Belgium. In this capacity he was responsible for the card production facilities in The Netherlands and Germany, the personalization bureaus in The Netherlands and Belgium and the development of security features for the ID division. With the expertise that he gained in several national ID projects, he contributed to many of the global Government ID projects DeLaRue was involved in.

In 1989 he joined Datacard as Regional Vice President Europe Middle-East, India and Africa. In addition to his regional role, he led the development of secure ID and passport personalization solutions. Under his leadership, Datacard has established a major position in secure ID and Passport solutions.

“New technologies to enhance security at time of personalization (STOP)”

This presentation will discuss how to enhance the security of national IDs using some of the new personalisation security features emerging in the industry.

For more than a decade, most national ID cards and passports have been produced by the factory processes of security printing and document assembly followed by digital personalization in an issuing office.

Whereas the manufacturing processes and materials used in security printing are specialized and often unique to the industry, personalization is typically achieved using a commercially available digital print engine, such as inkjet, toner or thermal ribbon systems.

As document security relies upon the restricted availability of the technologies used to produce the genuine original, and theft of components remains a threat, there is a growing need for non-commercial personalization technologies. In this way the genuine base document and the variable data come together in a secure personalization system which delivers a document that can be clearly recognised as genuine.

New personalization features and effects are required, at overt, covert and forensic levels. These variable printing features should be linked to the prepinted base card design, the chip and the security overlay for a truly multi-layered secure chain of trust.

Work has advanced in many areas and several features and platforms show great potential. Variable holograms, micro lens effects, digital printing of security pigments, printed electronics and new laser engraving features are just some of the technologies that are beginning to emerge in the new front line of the battle against the criminal; personalisation security.
