Forensic Document Examiner
Institute of Forensic Sciences, University of Lausanne
Martin Fürbach (*1979, Slovakia) obtained his Master of Science in analytical chemistry in 2003. In 2010 he joined the document section of the Institute of Forensic Science, University of Lausanne. His major interests are counterfeited banknotes in relation with modern digital devices, reverse engineering, history of state supported counterfeiting, inkjet printing and paper analysis.

Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, it can offer non-destructive and destructive analysis of substrate, inks and security features, with the aim to determine authenticity, forensic intelligence, evidence report, consulting (anti-counterfeiting, counterfeit resistance etc.) and training.
The core of this presentation is the reverse engineering analysis and its contribution to more counterfeit resistant banknotes. Main points of interests are positive and negative aspects of reverse engineering, possible strategies related to banknote specification and design, individual security features, and alternative forms of counterfeiting. The role of traditional and new threats (Internet based tutorials, vector graphics, machine readable features) is also discussed. Can current conventional printing techniques and design still be considered a sufficient barrier against counterfeiting, or have they become obsolete and should be replaced with applied security features?

How collaboration and working together to create strong plans leads to successful banknote series
Change increases risk and there are few more public “products” than a banknote. Although the theory of risk management is well known, this presentation considers the role of strong partnerships in risk mitigation in the banknote industry. Legal structures give clarity and drive rigour but it is the willingness of capable partners to work together to a shared plan that delivers. As the cash cycle becomes more complex and the number of stakeholders involved increases, the need for an effective shared plan increases while becoming harder to deliver. Innovia will share its experience and highlight what it regards as best practice enabling Central Banks to introduce new banknote designs successfully.

Learning from Mistakes: Using Lessons Learned to Transform Organizations and Build Sustainable and Repeatable Processes for Success
Improving security is the primary objective for designing a new family of notes, however, effective security feature integration across a consistently manufacturable family of notes, which enables intuitive authentication by the public, and is robust against counterfeiters, is the only way to protect the currency in an environment of expanding threats. The Federal Reserve discovered that the current family of notes was not broadly successful and that change was necessary at the Central Bank and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing. Recognizing problems, accepting responsibility, and identifying and implementing solutions were all necessary for future successes of new families of notes.

Automated virtual reconstruction of damaged and destroyed banknotes
Since 2009, Fraunhofer IPK and Bundesdruckerei have been jointly running the SecVerification Lab Berlin. To date, the main focus of its work has been on the development and investigation of methods for verifying the authenticity of official documents. In future the focus of its activities will shift to the automated virtual reconstruction of security documents and banknotes that have been destroyed or damaged. As manual reconstruction, even of a small amount of fragments, is already enormously time-consuming, manual reconstruction of a large number of tiny fragments is frequently no longer possible or only possible with an undue expenditure of time. Accordingly, the aim of the partnership between Fraunhofer IPK and Bundesdruckerei is to develop and construct the prototype of a digitization unit.
