USCIS Wins Border Security Management Award

LaserCard : 08 December, 2010  (Company News)
2010 Homeland Security Award goes to the citizenship and immigration services department in the USA for the use of next-generation Green Card program
LaserCard has offered its congratulations to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the US Department of Homeland Security, and the Chief of the Integrated Document Production Division, on winning the "Most Effective Border Security Program" category of the Government Security News 2010 Homeland Security Awards.

USCIS has been distinguished for their leadership in improving Homeland Security by introducing numerous secure innovations in the recently launched next generation US Permanent Resident Card (Green Card) program, including the card's structure, data and visual security features and advanced, upgraded card personalization process.

A July 2010 report by market research firm Frost & Sullivan describes the newly redesigned 2010 US Green Cards as 'among the most physically secure and counterfeit-resistant machine-readable identification cards ever issued'. The new card builds on the success of the original optical security media based Green Card, introduced in 1997, and leverages USCIS' expertise as the world leader in designing and personalizing secure ID programs based on optical security media technology. The new card also features an ICAO-compliant design and an embedded RFID tag, which provides compatibility with the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI), thus facilitating land border crossing. Frost & Sullivan concluded that because of these innovations, 'the next generation U.S. Green Card sets a new standard for international government ID programs.'

"We are pleased that USCIS has been recognized for its leadership in the innovative application of advanced security methods and technology," said Robert DeVincenzi, president and CEO of LaserCard. "The next generation Green Card breaks new ground in the field of ID cards, significantly raising the bar for counterfeiters and forgers while resolving the apparent conflict between diligent inspection and facilitation of border crossing."

The US Green Card is manufactured by LaserCard, a leading provider of secure ID solutions, and supplied to USCIS by General Dynamics Information Technology, LaserCard's prime contractor.
