Biocertification offers a series of webinars addressing specific topics related to biometric applications. Biometric technologies are deployed in a variety of applications and industry sectors. These 1 day webinars are intended for technology professionals who want to learn about operational challenges and strategies for successful deployments of biometric technologies.
Biometric solutions for Enterprise Identity Management
This webinar will discuss how commercially available biometric technologies can be deployed in today’s enterprise infrastructure to improve security, reliability and convenience. Identity management is constantly evolving to address the operational needs of the modern digital world. This webinar will introduce the audience to a framework for selecting the most appropriate biometric technology, how to conduct risk analysis on your biometric systems and design policies for maximizing system efficiency.
Biometric technologies in addressing regulatory compliance
The requirement of non-repudiation in digital transactions has lead to several regulations, like HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley, mandating the use of strong authentication mechanisms. Compliance with such regulations is a necessity in today’s business environment and this webinar will focus on the use of biometric technologies to address identity management related component of industry specific regulations.
Biometric solutions for financial institutions
This webinar will focus on identity management challenges in the financial sector, specially with the increase in online banking and identity theft as well. Several financial institutions are using fingerprint recognition and fingervein recognition to authenticate clients at the ATM. There are several architecture and operational issues which need to be addressed for a successful biometric deployment. A discussion of real world case studies and cost/benefit analysis of various biometric technologies will be presented during this webinar.
Biometric solutions for improving electronic healthcare data
The use of IT systems in the healthcare environment and digitization of medical information has increased in recent times, and it will continue in the future. Fraudulent identities in the healthcare environment can cause monetary and bodily harm and current authentication methods are too cumbersome and unreliable to use in such a critical environment. Biometric technologies are well suited for managing identification credentials of healthcare professionals and patients. This webinar will discuss the specific challenges in using biometric technologies including impact of medical disorders and healthcare workflow on efficacy such systems.
Privacy issues with biometrics
Biometric technologies use physical and behavioral characteristics of humans which are considered personally identifiable information. The use of biometric technologies can have an impact on privacy of users and these concerns have to be addressed adequately through administrative and technical controls. This webinar will discuss the various privacy issues with regards to biometrics, framework for conducting privacy impact analysis of biometric systems, and design principles to enhance privacy through the use of biometric technologies.
Fingerprint, face and iris recognition – Theory and Applications
The last decade has seen a growth in design and development of fingerprint, face and iris recognition technologies. Although law enforcement is the primary driver for adoption of these systems, their applications can also be found in border control, personal identity management and banking solutions. This webinar will discuss image capture mechanisms and algorithm details of fingerprint, face and iris recognition, their advantages and drawbacks, as well as successful real world deployments.
Multimodal Biometrics for large scale Identity Management systems
The use of biometric technologies in large scale systems like voter registration, border control, national ID cards etc. is increasing around the world. Such systems are not powered by a single biometric technology; rather they employ multimodal biometric systems to ensure better performance and higher enrollment rates. Several US government systems use a combination of fingerprint, face and iris recognition in systems which manage millions of identities. While the benefits of such systems is evident, extracting optimal performance requires more than just a knowledge of each individual biometric technology. This webinar will discuss the benefits and drawbacks of multimodal biometric systems, best practices on designing and deploying multimodal biometric systems, and how multimodal biometric systems are being used in operational systems.
Auditing Biometric Systems
Although biometric systems are used to enhance enterprise security, they are also vulnerable to a variety of threats. A typical biometric system has a variety of attack points and these can be exploited by a number of threat agents. This webinar will discuss the process of conducting security audits for biometric systems, and present a risk assessment and audit framework. This can be extremely useful during the design and maintenance phase of the system lifecycle, as well as ensuring that corporate governance policies are being followed. Along with an introduction to biometric technologies, participants will also learn how to create an auditing guideline for specific biometric systems.
Biometrics & Mobile Devices
The exponential growth of smartphones, e-commerce services which can be completed using these devices, and the critical information held by such devices are going to be the main drivers for adoption of biometrics on mobile devices. The law enforcement community has been piloting the use of handheld devices to support the mission of their officers in the field, and this technology is now making an entry into other verticals like healthcare. This webinar will discuss the various efforts at porting biometric technologies for mobile devices, best practices for optimal performance and case studies of operational systems.
