Standard Register to Offer Fraud Workshops to Give Advice About Security Issues

Wednesday, May 02, 2001

Press release from the issuing company

DAYTON, Ohio-April 30, 2001--U.S. businesses lost more than $266 million last year alone to computer-related white-collar crimes such as identity theft, credit card fraud and check fraud, according to a recent report by Computer Science Institute. In order to educate business professionals on how to protect their companies from becoming victims of fraud, document management company Standard Register (NYSE:SR) today announced it would host nine free fraud workshops across the country. "Fraud is much easier to perpetrate today than ever before," says Dan Thaxton, Manager, Document Security at Standard Register. "Easy access to the Internet and advancements in digital technology provide anyone with a computer, a scanner and a color laser printer the tools necessary to recreate authentic-looking documents. With even just one of these counterfeit documents," he adds, "a thief has the means to create a significant loss for a business." One of the keys to preventing fraud, according to Thaxton, is to educate businesses on how to protect themselves from white-collar criminals. At the workshops, leading fraud authority Frank W. Abagnale advises participants of important measures to combat crimes involving document fraud, false product packaging, labels and related printed items. Document fraud involves far more than checks. In fact, phony product packaging, labels, certificates of authenticity, vital records, car titles, transcripts, rebate coupons, licenses, gift certificates, diplomas, medical prescriptions, passports and event tickets are often targets for fraudulent activity. Register to attend the following Fraud Prevention Workshops by calling 800/755-6405, or visit http://www.standardregister.com/Events for more information.
