One of the concerns for security field professionals is the proliferation of crimes committed with the use of fake identity documents. Fake IDs are popular among criminals but also among American college students who want to drink alcohol, before they turn 21 years of age. Thus fake IDs became available to buy on the internet from for a small fee paid in bitcoin. British youth obtain fake IDs mostly to be able to buy cigarettes, as legal drinking age in Britain is 18 years, so they are less popular in UK.

Shield Awards 2019

The Fifth edition of SECONA Shield Awards, powered by Secutech India

The SECONA Shield 2019 Awards, powered by Secutech India, was held on Friday, 26th April 2019, at the NSE Complex, Mumbai.
Awards were given away in more than 30 categories for outstanding individual and organisational achievements. Shield Awards are the first awards in the Indian security & safety industry and have recognized the contribution of many “Superstars” in this sector – these are the women and men, who work day and night to provide products, services and even ideas that make us and our communities truly safer.
As a country, India is exposed to multitudinous threats, which require customized and home-made solutions to mitigate them. There is a need to encourage local research and innovation in technology, which is one of the key objectives of the SECONA and the Shield Awards. Efforts to design, make or at least, adapt technologies in India often find resonance in the final selection of Shield Awards.
Thank you all for the amazing response to Shield Awards 2019 and we look forward to welcome you for Shield Awards 2020!
