In today's global economy protecting the integrity of our credentials is more important than ever. Picture of earth from space on a tablet. Zooms out from man sitting at a desk, to the building he is in, then an overhead view of the city to clouds in the sky.
Each year, countless fraudulent diplomas and transcripts are purchased with the explicit intent to deceive goverments, employers and institutions. Display of several newspaper headlines about credential fraud.
Credential fraud is a multi-billion dollar criminial enterprise. View from space of earth with dollar bills used to show a picture of the globe focused on north and south America.
The acceptance of falsified credentials has led to damaged reputations, costly litigation and untold losses worldwide. Judge banging gavel.
The question is, how do you spot the difference between the college graduate and the imposter? Examples of college graduates and imposters scroll past.
[no sound] Text "Certified Electronic Diploma" transforms into "CeDiploma"
A CeDiploma is more than a paper diploma. College graduate holding a table with an image of a diploma.
It's an official, verifiable and secure PDF version of a graduate's academic achievement. Text "CeDiploma" has the words "Official" and "Verifiable" added after it stacked on top of each other and then "Secure" is inserted between "Official" and "Verifiable".
Unlike other electronic credentials, the CeDiploma is the only one using patent pending, real-time validation services, through the issuing institution. The ultimate authority. A sample e-Diploma is crumpled up and dropped off screen and replaced with a CeDiploma from North Carolina State University, then one from The American University, then one from The University of Virginia, then one from Texas A&M University, then one from The Johns Hopkins University, then from Elon University, all of which have a verified stamp in the upper left corner and "certified" stamp over the center.
Anyone can visit the institution's website for a time and date stamped CeDiploma validation. Full page of the CeCredentials validation website for West Chester University, zooms into the validation form fields as the form is filled out.
And because the issuing institution has provided this validation, you can be absolutely confident in the credential's authenticity. Zooms out to the full page to show the validation information has been displayed under the validation form. The validation information is enlarged to see the details.
As added protection, each CeDiploma is encrypted and will be visible indicate if it has been tampered with or modified in any way. A PDF reader displays the diploma that was validated. The Signature Panel section is enlarged to show the text: "Certified by CeCredential Trust, CeCredential Trust certificate issued by GlobalSign for Adobe". A green check mark appears over the screen. Green check mark disappears and a red no sign appears. The Signature Panel section text is now: "Certification by CeCredential Trust is invalid"
[no sound] Text "CeDiploma" and blue checkmark with yellow circles in a sun ray pattern behind it. Text "trust, then verify" appears after the blue check mark. Text "Accepted Worldwide!" appears on the next line.
