Stolen blank document

Blank document theft protection

What is stolen blank document theft and how to detect it?

An identity document is basically made up of a blank document that is personalised with its holder’s data (name, gender, date of birth, age, etc). When the job of personalisation is decentralized (to local authorities), blank identity documents are sent to these points. Forgers take advantage of this transit to steal some of the blanks, and then personalise them with false data. It is now a very common type of document fraud.

Today, identity documents are mostly personalised in a secure central location to avoid this kind of fraud, although exceptions exist. Visas, for example, are necessarily personalised in consulates and embassies. That’s why stolen blank fraud is a significant concern for this kind of document.

Like other document fraud techniques, it is sometimes impossible to detect blank document fraud with the naked eye. Fraudsters’ techniques are evolving and are sometimes very well executed.

What criteria to look for when you look for a PVID provider?

Fraudsters favor identity theft. Its financial damage can quickly escalate: 14% of the attacked companies have suffered a loss of over 100 000 euros.
To counter this threat, the authorities offered to set a framework that would ensure remote identification. The ANSSI (national safety and security agency) defined this framework in 2021: it’s the Remote Identity Verification Providers (PVID) standard.

As part of its requirements for entering into a remote relationship, the ACPR (Autorité de contrôle prudentiel et de résolution) suggested financial and banking institutions should use this standard.

All service providers that wish to comply with the 1st and 5th measures of the Financial Markets Code (FMC) in France for remote onboarding are concerned by this standard: they must meet the same requirements and offer the same process. So how do you choose among all the PVID providers?
