  Changes to forming a Company in England and Wales
Posted by: SofiaM - 10-26-2023, 10:38 PM - Forum: The Green Room - No Replies

From the Companies House website today. This is new news and relevant to anyone who forms companies so please read.

This is one of the most significant moments for Companies House in our long history.
I’m delighted that we can now play a much greater role in disrupting economic crime and preventing abuse of the register, while supporting economic growth and ease of doing business in the UK.
The measures set out in the act will give us new and enhanced powers to improve the quality and reliability of our data.
We’ll also be able to act more quickly if people tell us their personal information has been used on the register without their consent. This will make a real difference to individuals and it’s something I’m particularly passionate about.
The measures include:
introducing identity verification for all new and existing registered company directors, people with significant control, and those who file on behalf of companies
broadening my powers to become a more active gatekeeper over company creation and a custodian of more reliable data
improving the financial information on the register so that the register is more reliable and accurate, reflects the latest advancements in digital technology, and enables better business decisions
providing Companies House with more effective investigation and enforcement powers, and increasing our ability to share relevant information with partners
enhancing the protection of personal information to protect individuals from fraud and other harms.

New objectives for the Registrar of Companies
The act has introduced 4 new objectives for me as the Registrar of Companies. Alongside my colleagues, I’ll promote these objectives while carrying out my duties:
To ensure that anyone who is required to deliver a document to the registrar does so (and that the requirements for proper delivery are complied with).
To ensure information contained in the register is accurate and that the register contains everything it ought to contain.
To ensure that records kept by the registrar do not create a false or misleading impression to members of the public.
To prevent companies and others from carrying out unlawful activities, or facilitating others to carry out unlawful activities.
As an organisation, we’ll base our decisions on these objectives. Our new and enhanced powers will give us the tools we need to act on those decisions.

What happens next
Although the Bill has received royal assent and is now an act, you do not need to do anything differently just yet.
Some of the measures in the act, such as identity verification, will not be introduced straight away. Many of these changes need system development and This is new and important news so please read.

The Economic Crime and Corporate Transparency Bill has achieved royal assent and become law. This is one of the most significant moments for Companies House in our long history.

However, other measures will come into force sooner. Over time, they’ll lead to improved transparency and more accurate and trusted information on our registers.
These early measures include:
greater powers to query information. This means we’ll be able to scrutinise and reject information that seems incorrect or inconsistent with information already on the register. In some cases, we’ll be able to remove information.
stronger checks on company names
new rules for registered office addresses which will mean all companies must have an appropriate address at all times. Companies will not be able to use a PO Box as their registered office address.
a requirement for all companies to supply a registered email address
a requirement for all companies to confirm they’re forming the company for a lawful purpose when they incorporate. Every year, the company will need to confirm that its future activities will be lawful on their confirmation statement.
annotations on the register to let users know about potential issues with the information that’s been supplied to us
taking steps to clean up the register, using data matching to identify and remove inaccurate information
sharing data with other government departments and law enforcement agencies
We expect these measures to come into force in early 2024.
We will not be able to identify every piece of information or document on the register that could be incorrect or inconsistent. However, we’ll base all our decisions on my new objectives to make sure we’re making best use of our new and enhanced powers.

  Police Using Passport Images For Facial Recognition
Posted by: SofiaM - 10-25-2023, 05:29 PM - Forum: The Green Room - No Replies

This isn't brand new news but it's something everyone should know about.

Sebastian Klovig Skelton, Senior reporter Computer Weekly
Published: 05 Oct 2023 12:15
Policing minister Chris Philp has outlined his intention to give police forces access to the UK’s passport database, claiming it will enhance their facial-recognition capabilities to help catch shoplifters and other criminals.
Speaking at a fringe event of the Conservative Party Conference, Philp told attendees that he plans to integrate data from the police national database (PND), the Passport Office and other national databases to help police find a match with the “click of one button”.
“I’m going to be asking police forces to search all of those databases – the police national database, which has custody images, but also other databases like the passport database – not just for shoplifting, but for crime generally, to get those matches, because the technology is now so good that you can get a blurred image and get a match for it,” he said.
“Operationally, I’m asking them to do it now. In the medium term, by which I mean the next two years, we’re going to try to create a new data platform so you can press one button [and it] lets you search it all in one go.”
Philp added that police forces should search each database separately until the new platform is up and running.
According to the 2021 census, just over 86% of the British public hold at least one passport.
In 2012, a High Court ruling specifically found the retention of custody images in the PND to be unlawful on the basis that information about unconvicted people was being treated in the same way as information about people who were ultimately convicted, and that the six-year retention period was disproportionate.
Speaking to Parliament’s Joint Committee on Human Rights (JCHR) in February 2023, the biometric and surveillance camera commissioner for England and Wales, Fraser Sampson, said: “I’m here today saying there are probably several million of those records still,” adding that the response from policing bodies and the Home Office (which owns most of the biometric database used by UK police) is to point out the information is held on a database with no bulk deletion capability.
“I’m not sure that works for public trust and confidence, but even if it did … you can’t [legally] rely on a flaw in a database you built for unlawfully retaining stuff … that’s a technical problem that’s of the country’s and the police’s making rather than the people whose images you’ve kept.”
Read more about facial recognition technology
UK police double down on ‘improved’ facial recognition: The Met and South Wales Police have doubled down on their use of facial recognition technology after research found improved accuracy in their algorithms when using certain settings, but civil society groups maintain that the tech will still be used in a discriminatory fashion.
Home Office pushes for more police facial-recognition deployments: An independent report commissioned by the biometrics commissioner of England and Wales reveals that the UK policing minister is pushing for wider adoption of facial-recognition technology by police, and further criticises the government’s proposed changes to surveillance oversight.
Home Office and MoD seeking new facial-recognition tech: The UK’s Defence and Security Accelerator is running a ‘market exploration’ exercise on behalf of the Home Office to identify new facial-recognition capabilities for security and policing bodies in the UK.
Responding to questions from Computer Weekly about whether Philp’s comments were official policy or something he was saying in a personal capacity, a Home Office spokesperson said: “The government is committed to making sure the police have the tools and technology they need to solve and prevent crimes, bring offenders to justice and keep people safe.
“Technology such as facial recognition can help the police quickly and accurately identify those wanted for serious crimes, as well as missing or vulnerable people,” they said. “It also frees up police time and resources, meaning more officers can be out on the beat, engaging with communities and carrying out complex investigations.
“We are working with policing to enable seamless searching of relevant images where it is necessary and proportionate for them to do so to investigate crime and protect the public.”
In response to Philp’s comments, Sampson told the BBC it’s important for police to avoid giving people the impression they’re on a “digital lineup”.
“The state has large collections of good-quality photographs of a significant proportion of the population – drivers and passport holders being good examples – which were originally required and given as a condition of, say, driving and international travel,” he said.
“If the state routinely runs every photograph against every picture of every suspected incident of crime simply because it can, there is a significant risk of disproportionality and of damaging public trust.”
Speaking with Computer Weekly, he added that one significant risk from large, state-operated databases lies in the aggregated effect of having pulled so much information into one place.
“Once you add information from all government databases, such as driver and vehicle licensing, and Automatic Number Plate Recognition logging vehicle registration numbers and movements, you have a hugely intrusive and sprawling visibility of citizens the vast majority of whom are beyond any reasonable suspicion,” he said. “If anyone still believes the adage that ‘if you’ve done nothing wrong you’ve nothing to worry about’, they have completely misunderstood the issue.”
Further responses
Silkie Carlo, director of Big Brother Watch, described Philp’s plans as an “Orwellian nightmare”, noting that it would be a “gross violation” of UK privacy rights. “It means that over 45 million of us with passports who gave our images for travel purposes will, without any kind of consent or the ability to object, be part of secret police lineups,” she said.
“To scan the population’s photos with highly inaccurate facial-recognition technology and treat us like suspects is an outrageous assault on our privacy that totally overlooks the real reasons for shoplifting. Philp should concentrate on fixing broken policing rather than building an automated surveillance state.”
Emmanuelle Andrews, policy and campaigns manager at the campaign group, added: “Time and time again, the government has relied on the social issue of the day to push through increasingly authoritarian measures. And that’s just what we’re seeing here with these extremely worrying proposals to encourage the police to scan our faces as we go to buy a pint of milk and trawl through our personal information.
“By enabling the police to use private dashcam footage, as well as the immigration and asylum system, and passport database, the government are turning our neighbours, loved ones, and public service officials into border guards and watchmen.”
Karen Yeung, an interdisciplinary professorial fellow in law, ethics and informatics at Birmingham Law School, also questioned the necessity and proportionality of the measure.
“Providing police with routine access to Britain’s passport database to automatically identify those whose images were captured by CCTV as suspected shoplifters, burglars or other kinds of crime, seriously interferes with rights to privacy and data protection,” she said. “These interferences would not meet the tests of necessity and proportionality in a democratic society.”
“This proposal not only reflects a naïve technological solutionism in which digital technologies will readily solve deep-seated social problems, it also displays a reckless disregard for the basic liberties and freedoms of British citizens,” said Yeung.
“It could be taken straight from the playbook of authoritarian states, standing in stark contrast to the calls from over 155 organisations, led by Amnesty, urging the EU to impose a full ban on the use of facial-recognition systems in publicly accessible places under its proposed [artificial intelligence] AI Act.”
Urgent need for biometric regulation
Michael Birtwistle, associate director of law and policy at the Ada Lovelace Institute, said the accuracy, scientific basis and legality of facial recognition technologies are still highly contested, and outlined the need for specific legal framework to govern the use of biometrics in the UK. 
“The Ada Lovelace Institute commissioned Matthew Ryder KC to review the legal governance of biometric technologies, which found that the current legal framework is not fit for purpose, due to a fragmented and confusing patchwork of laws,” he said.
“Parliamentary Select Committees, the Biometrics Commissioner and other experts all agree on the need to establish proper governance mechanisms before these technologies can be used,” said Birtwistle. “The 2019 Conservative Party manifesto acknowledged these concerns, promising that police technologies would be used safely ‘within a strict legal framework’.
“To expand the deployment of facial recognition to a database containing images of 45 million members of the British public, without their consent and without the existence of such a framework, would risk creating unprecedented public backlash, setting back trust in public sector use of data and AI.”
In a report that was sent to the Home Office in November 2022 and published on February 2023, Sampson previously called for clear, comprehensive and coherent frameworks to regulate police use of AI and biometrics in the UK, noting that there has been an “explosion of capability in AI-driven biometric surveillance”.
Both Parliament and civil society have also repeatedly called for new legal frameworks to govern law enforcement’s use of biometrics – including a House of Lords inquiry into police use of advanced algorithmic technologies; the UK’s Equalities and Human Rights Commission; the former biometrics commissioner Paul Wiles; and the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee, which called for a moratorium on live facial recognition as far back as July 2019.
However, the government maintains that there is “already a comprehensive framework” in place.

  Unmasking the Art of Bank Record Manipulation: Protecting Your Financial World
Posted by: CA Admin - 09-27-2023, 11:23 AM - Forum: Technology - No Replies

In the riveting realm of forensic accounting, bank records are like the hidden treasure chest of financial mysteries, revealing an entity's true financial history. They are storytellers, whispering secrets of transactions, balances, and money movements. But, beware! In our thrilling investigations, we've uncovered a web of deceit lurking within electronic bank statements. These documents have been skillfully doctored, with descriptions and amounts artfully altered. It's a financial statement fraud extravaganza, impacting nearly every account in an entity's financial records.

How PDFs Become the Canvas for Deception:
In this digital age, financial wizards often download bank and credit card statements in the PDF format. It's the eco-friendly way to go, and it's on the rise. However, we've cracked open the secrets of PDF manipulation. Some crafty individuals use software that can sneakily edit amounts, dates, and transaction descriptions. Once the dark deed is done, the files are transformed back into innocent-looking PDFs.
And, there's more magic afoot! The magician's wand, in this case, is Adobe Acrobat Pro. It's an enchanting tool that allows one to make changes without the need for file format conversion. Picture this: an employee with sticky fingers uses a company credit card for personal gains. With access to electronic statements, it's as simple as changing the payee from a glamorous department store to a less suspicious office supply shop.

But wait, there's no escape for PDFs! Even when they masquerade as image files in bitmap format, a little trick called Optical Character Recognition (OCR) comes into play. Adobe Acrobat flaunts an OCR feature, and there's a treasure trove of similar tools online. Even if your PDF is in a non-text format, cunning techniques like screen capture and strategic editing can bend it to the deceiver's will.

Cracking the Vault: How to Fortify PDFs:
Some financial institutions wield security features like a shield against manipulation. This is most common with investment accounts. In Adobe Acrobat Pro, you can play detective and check if these security features are in place. However, they can only be removed with the secret password. But, and this is the twist, most banks don't lock down their electronic statements with such safeguards.
Now, let's talk about the Fort Knox of PDFs. These files can withstand it all – changes, combinations, extractions, text copying, and even printing. While rarely used, you might wonder why a bank would limit printing. Well, consider this: someone with access to printed statements can simply scan them back into PDF format, stripping away all the security features. Even password protection can be a paper tiger in the face of determined manipulation.

Conclusion: Unveiling the Art of Deception
Unmasking manipulated bank statements is like spotting a chameleon in the jungle – nearly impossible without a baseline to compare against. Forensic accountants and receivers, take heed! When dealing with PDF bank and credit card statements, especially those not directly from the financial institution, here are some crucial clues:

Keep an eye out for subtle font differences; some banks use cryptic fonts that baffle basic OCR software.
Beware of statements that appear scanned but have transformed into text format – a telltale sign of potential manipulation.
Match the ending balances from prior statements with the beginning balances of subsequent ones; consistent manipulation is a tough act to maintain.

Investigate excessive bank fees; they might indicate overdraws despite apparent positive balances.
The digital world offers convenience, but it also hides danger. Let's be vigilant and always on guard against the clever schemes lurking within electronic bank records. A single red flag may not be definitive proof of fraud, but it could be the first clue on a thrilling journey. When in doubt, call upon the expertise of a forensic accountant, skilled at unmasking the tricks hidden within manipulated bank statements. Your financial world will thank you!
