The Security Industry Association has named the five recipients of its 2023 SIA Women in Biometrics Awards, with Acuity Market Intelligence’s Principal Analyst Maxine Most among the honorees.
In announcing the recipients, the SIA described Most as a “strategic innovator, market visionary, and forecasting guru”, adding that Acuity Market Intelligence – which was founded by Most – is “recognized as the definitive authority on global biometrics market development.”
Most has authored a number of research reports, participated in high-profile expert panels, and contributed to books and other publications; she was also one of earliest analysts to recognize the mobile biometrics revolution that got underway after the launch of Apple’s first fingerprint-scanning iPhone in 2013. Notably, she is FindBiometrics’ key research partner, assisting the industry’s leading media brand in the development of high-level research projects including the annual FindBiometrics Year in Review.
It’s no wonder, then, that Most now finds herself among the honorees in the SIA Women in Biometrics Awards program, which, in the words of SIA CEO Don Erickson, “recognizes the inspiring leaders who are driving change and innovation in biometric identity and security”.
Other recipients of this year’s awards include Larisa Boyko, the Quality Assurance Director of NEC Corporation of America’s Advanced Recognition Systems unit; Alicia Harrison, Chief of Stakeholder Engagement for the Department of Homeland Security’s Office of Biometric Identity Management; IDEMIA Justice and Public Safety SVP Casey Mayfield; and FBI Management and Program Analyst Bethany Retton.
The 2023 SIA Women in Biometrics Award winners will be honored at a dedicated ceremony on May 16 during the SIA GovSummit, a networking and information sharing event aimed at bringing together government and private sector leaders. The event will take place at the National Housing Center in Washington, D.C.
