The award for its continued services has been presented by the inaugural Sharjah International Award for Refugee Advocacy and Support, an initiative launched by Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. It is organised by the emirate’s Big Heart Foundation, a global humanitarian charity dedicated to helping refugees and people in need worldwide and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

Despite facing constant dangers and harsh conditions on a daily basis, SDF, which was founded in 2003 by a small group of volunteers, implemented a spectrum of communal and humanitarian projects in the worst affected districts, providing greater protection to civilians, particularly in rural regions.

The award aims to recognise and pay tribute to those who have made distinguished humanitarian efforts to anyone seeking refuge and displaced families in Asia, the Middle East and North Africa. It is held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council Ruler of Sharjah, and his wife, Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Chairperson of the Big Heart Foundation, and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Eminent Advocate for Refugee Children.

Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, said: “The foundation’s initiatives are worthy examples for many organisations and entities in the region to follow in order to help the vulnerable, sick and homeless. It is essential that we recognise and reward those who dedicate so much of their time and effort to such noble causes.

“These achievements are a much-needed reminder that the world is fundamentally a good place with good people and the Sharjah International Award for Refugee Advocacy and Support is a sign of respect and appreciation to all those who have extended such a vital helping hand to refugees across the world.”

1 Million MOTION CODE™ Online Transactions With Société Générale17.10.2017 10:07Pressemelding

IDEMIA, the global leader in trusted identities for an increasingly digital world, today announced the milestone of 1 million MOTION CODE TM online transactions with Société Générale. Société Générale was one of the first banks worldwide to launch MOTION CODE™, the next-generation card integrating a dynamic security code by IDEMIA (formerly known as OT-Morpho). This solution consists in replacing the 3 digits of the cryptogram printed on the back of the card with a small screen displaying a new “dynamic” code every hour. Thus, in case of piracy of the bank card’s data, the 3 digits of the cryptogram quickly become obsolete, preventing fraudsters from reusing data, especially on e-commerce sites. After successful testing among more than 500 people in 2016, Société Générale started offering MOTION CODE™ to all their French customers early 2017. In les
