Pos Digicert’s Chief Operating Officer, Amir Suhaimi said, “This solution would be able to significantly reduce the alarming increase of cases involving fake educational certificates and transcripts. e-Credentia enables employers to verify their potential employees’ educational certificates as this solution comes with a secure encrypted QR Code that allows for verification on the digital signature.
This would further protect the University or Higher Learning Institutions brand image, credibility and reputation. ”
Two notable Malaysia higher learning institutions that have implemented Pos Digicert’s e-Credentia are DRB-HICOM University (DHU) and University Malaya.
“DRB-HICOM University is grateful for Pos Digicert’s e-Credentia solutions and we are glad that we are on board to prevent forgery of DHU’s graduates’ certificates and transcripts.
