Biometric technology is transforming border control and national security, making the process of traveling to and from the nations of the world easier, more secure, and—for the agencies deploying next gen identity tech—comprehensive. It’s a global phenomenon, stoked by a necessarily defensive attitude in this age of international terrorism, and embraced by a population eager to travel with greater ease and safety.
Biometric eGates are leveraging fingerprint, iris, face biometrics and more to help expedite security screenings at ports of travel. Mobile biometric handsets are being deployed with customs agents. New secure documents are being issued to citizens, new enrollment centers are popping up, and new scanning technologies are being developed to find the perfect balance between convenience for trusted travelers and high security for potential threats.
On June 22, 2016 at 11 AM EDT, FindBiometrics will be hosting the latest entry in its renowned webinar series, Biometrics and the New Era of National Security and Border Control. The webcast will take participants to the frontier of the ongoing border control and national security conversation in this time of biometric transformation for the industry. Registration is free, and attendees can expect to take part in a question and answer period at the end of the 45 minute presentation.
