Great Article on Counterfeit Detection

I just read the slides of a presentation made by Cheryl Tulkoff of DfR Solutions at the SMTA Empire Chapter on June 18, 2013  called “Counterfeit Prevention & Detection Strategies:  When to Do It, How to Do It”.  You can read it here.

This by far is probably one of the best presentations I’ve ever had the privilege of reading. I especially like the parts on the decision matrix and counterfeit calculators that are illustrated in helping provide clear boundaries and guidelines for mitigation practices. These are great tools in helping contain this ever growing epidemic.
