Evolving technologies making smarter fraudsters

Individual Fraud

Falsely creates a degree certificate or alters a genuine document from a real university by changing the details on the certificate, for example, the name, subject, qualification or classification.

Fake Certificates

Mainly web-based offering ‘novelty’ or ‘replacement’ degree certificates that imitates the real university but in doing so breach copyright and trademark laws.

Bogus Universities

Provide a means for fraudsters to obtain “authentic” degree certificates and associated documents from unaccredited institutions.

The Next Generation of Document Security

Advanced Secure has developed a world-first in blockchain paper technology, to enhance the multi-layered security features of our certification security papers. Our new blockchain technology provides organisations with a verifiable and immutable record for each secure document they issue. ​

Using a smartphone, recipients can instantly verify qualifications. Thus, providing assurance to the recipient that the document papers are genuine, whilst authenticating that they originated from the organisation.

Critical to the ongoing success of a secure document strategy is that the security paper and security features used to protect qualifications against fraudulent attacks are constantly reviewed and updated.

In understanding this, Advanced Secure continuously review and update our Secure Paper Standard, to ensure our customers always remain ahead of fraudulent activity.
