DALLAS, Nov. 9, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Entrust, Inc. President and CEO Bill Conner addressed global security and law enforcement leaders during INTERPOL's 79th General Assembly in Doha, Qatar, Monday. With many dignitaries, officials and ministers in attendance, Conner explained the current identity fraud threat landscape, and also outlined the multipurpose smartcard credentials Entrust recently developed to properly secure the digital identities of INTERPOL officers.
"Entrust is proud to have partnered with INTERPOL in the development of this new level of identity-based security that will assist INTERPOL officers and law enforcement around the world in their travel and pursuit of transnational criminals," said Entrust President and CEO Bill Conner. "Regardless of the space, industry, environment or purpose, our goal is to move from a defensive, reactive posture to one where we are anticipating and shutting down attacks before they occur. This is the first of many steps in realizing that objective."
Those in attendance at the INTERPOL General Assembly included Qatar's Minister of State for Internal Affairs, Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nasser Bin Khalifa Al Thani, INTERPOL President Khoo Boon Hui and INTERPOL Secretary General Ronald K. Noble.
Announced in June, the core of INTERPOL's multipurpose smartcard is based on Entrust technology and services, which allow organizations to establish and maintain a trustworthy environment. These credential services provide secure access to buildings and facilities, INTERPOL networks and data. This enables INTERPOL to control access to resources, prevent theft of information, and comply with privacy and digital signature regulations and laws on a global basis.

The credential facilitates mobility, interoperability and security of end-user access by employing one credential for building access, computer/logical access and a wide range of key applications, including secure e-mail and document-signing.
