Gradiant brings document fraud prevention technology to RSA Conference 2019


This event is one of the most important ICT security conference series around the world

San Francisco host this event, taking place from March 4h to 8th at Moscone Center

Gradiant takes part second year in a row in the RSA Conference, one of the most important series of conferences on ICT security in the world, aimed at the transfer of knowledge among the community of professionals in the sector. The event is taking place at the Moscone Center in San Francisco (USA) from March 4th to 8th and there is showcasing new approaches to information security and discover the latest technological solutions in cybersecurity.

In this international event that every year brings together more than 50,000 attendees, Gradiant has its own space (booth 2139 Moscone Center San Francisco) to showcase new technology solutions based on Artificial Intelligence to detect fraud and manipulation of ID documents and images.

As Juan González, Privacy and Security Director of Gradiant, explains “In the last few years, Gradiant has been committed to security as the core of its strategy for ICT technological development, providing secure solutions such as we are showcasing this year in San Francisco. Attending the RSA Conference for a second year demonstrates our strong commitment to innovation in cybersecurity and fraud prevention”.


Technologies to prevent fraud

The world has changed, and we live in an increasingly digital environment in which customers do not have to be physically present to open a bank account or take out insurance on their vehicle. While this scenario provides great advantages for customers and businesses such as easy shopping and customer growth, it also carries security problems like fraud or manipulations of documents and user verifications. Insurance companies and banks, for instance, with online processes, already need mechanisms to authenticate and verify the thousands of ID documents they daily receive in digital processes.

It is essential to provide technology for the protection and identification of multimedia files (video, image and audio) that can ensure document security. Techniques such as digital watermarking -to highlight illegal use of a digital service by an unauthorized user-, robust hashing, multimedia forensics, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, combined or on their own, make manipulations and falsifications detection faster and easier.

Gradiant has been developing for ten years different projects in multimedia security to different sectors, such as the authenticity or the traceability of printed documents to identify the person responsible for the custody of a certain document in filtration cases. To help companies to prevent fraud, Gradiant has developed a solution based on image forensics technology that detects forgeries in ID documents, photos or other files. The democratization of technology has made file falsifications (such as photos and ID documents) increasingly imperceptible to companies and institutions.
