International Biometric Group (IBG) extends an invitation to participate in IBGÂs upcoming teleconference on Biometrics and Mass Transit Systems, which will be held today at 1 p.m. EDT (10 a.m. PDT; 1700 Coordinated Universal Time).
In the wake of the recent attacks in London, there has been renewed interest in the use of biometrics for providing increased security in mass transit systems. As both policy makers and citizens agree, deploying high security solutions in the mass transit setting is essential to protecting citizens, mass transit workers, and critical state-owned property. While biometric technologies could provide a safe and secure means to authenticate and survey citizens and mass transit workers, there are many concerns associated with deploying biometrics. Some of these issues include privacy, feasibility, cost, and overall throughput with the addition of new security procedures and technologies.
Maud Meister, a consultant at IBG, will discuss issues pertaining to biometrics in the mass transit setting. Ms. Meister will address the following topics:
- How biometric technologies can address the need for heightened security in mass transit systems.
- Current and past deployments of biometrics in mass transit systems and lessons learned from these efforts.
- Deployment concerns in mass transit systems: privacy, biometric technology usability, cost, and efficiency.
- Potential future applications of biometrics for mass transit systems
There is no fee to participate in IBGÂs teleconference series. Visit http://www.biometricgroup.com/webconferences.html to log in and for further details.
