25 May Biometrics Workshop 2017
UPDATE: Unfortunately this event has now been cancelled and may be rescheduled at a later date. For more information on the event please visit the Smartex website.
Managing Director of ievo Ltd, Shaun Oakes, will be addressing audiences at the upcoming Biometrics Workshop 2017 hosted by Smartex and Microexpert.
The new 2-day residential workshop will be devoted to educating attendees about biometrics authentication, how systems work and how data is used.
“Smartex and Microexpert are pleased to announce a new 2-day residential workshop devoted to BIOMETRIC AUTHENTICATION OPERATED THROUGH MOBILE DEVICES, majoring on the future for authentication and authorisation relating to payments.
Passwords and PINs have provided the main forms of identification, authentication and authorisation for many years, but are no longer suitable for purpose – as well as being widely disliked by their users. They are also amenable to a wide range of fraudulent attacks and theft. The linkage binding people to systems has not been adequate, if it existed at all. Biometrics provide that essential link and are the basis for a secure means to associate authorised users and their entitlements with the proper exercise of a wide range of activities, from remote payments to the validation of the people themselves.
Mobile devices are the ideal form factors to provide the biometric reading and validation capability, as this process remains firmly in the hands of the subject individual, and eliminates the need for the deployment of millions of expensive biometric readers at points of use.
The main application for which m-Biometrics will be indispensable will be the world of payments. This application will therefore be the focus of our Workshop.”
