Mission Statement

The DSA is a public/private partnership dedicated to improving security documents and related production and issuance procedures to help combat the growing acts of fraud, terrorism, illegal immigration, identity theft, and other criminal acts by drawing upon the knowledge and detailed technical disciplines of its members.

DSA’s efforts are focused on increasing awareness of the problems associated with counterfeiting of key financial instruments, travel and identity documents, serving as a resource for governments seeking to build their understanding of the solutions that exist today and providing recommendations and technical papers.
