From the halls of universities to the Oval Office, the issue of cybersecurity is occupying an increasingly central role in everyday life. The major growth in cybersecurity efforts in organizations of all types is undoubtedly due in large part to the havoc that hackers wreaked in 2014. During last year, we got accustomed to seeing new breach headlines every couple of days it seemed like. Hopefully, though, 2015 will be the year we take significant steps toward keeping those attacks at bay. With the work currently being done by educational and government institutions, it looks like preparedness will be the word in 2015.

When it comes to ePassports, that's not a topic that is new to governments. In fact, it has been a subject of discussion - and action - for some time now. Back in 2012, the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) put out a report stating that roughly half of U.N. member states were issuing ePassports. At the time, the U.S. was leading the pack in terms of ePassport offerings, but European countries and nations in the Asia-Pacific region were also gaining momentum as far as their own ePassport presence, according to SecureID News.

Security technology is evolving to manage the threats that undermine traditional identity security measures. There is now a global shift to move towards ePassports.

Back in 1994, Entrust debuted the world's first commercially available public key infrastructure. In the more than 20 years since then, it's been refining and building on the technology. Over the past two decades, enterprise security needs have skyrocketed alongside the growth of connected technology. According to one report from last year, 94 percent of the organizations surveyed reported experiencing cybersecurity issues. These days, a single targeted attack can end up costing an enterprise millions of dollars - and it's not only big corporations and financial institutions that are targeted: From medicine and government entities to small and medium-sized companies, everyone is a target. Across the board, susceptibility to cybercrime has never been higher.

With over 40 million fraudulent or stolen passports in circulation globally, it has become increasingly important that government passport programs do all they can to ensure that the travelers crossing their borders are who they say they are. It also is important that those tasked with securing borders have the ability to confidently verify travelers with ease. As government programs continue to evolve to include both digital and physical security features in their documents, passport agencies have found that the power of the document security is derived from a combination of the physical passport booklet attributes, the digital features within the booklet and digital features used to verify an individual’s identity during the enrollment process.
