While policy creation for the use of biometric technologies at national borders remains a matter for government, best practices and guiding principles for effective deployment can be built through collaboration between the industry’s global stakeholders, says Isabelle Moeller, Chief Executive of the Biometrics Institute.
There is little doubt that security technology is evolving rapidly. One area that seems to be experiencing significant change is that of access control. The introduction of newer and more effective biometrics, mobile access and data analytics has seen a myriad of interesting products emerge.
The worldwide biometrics market is growing at a rapid pace because of the need for increased security and fighting the rising scenarios of identity theft, data hacking, and security breaches. Businesses and governments are all looking for authentication technologies that provide security that can be relied on.
