31 March 2022

 

The Regional Support Office was pleased to attend the Biometrics Institute’s On the Pulse Conversation: Is there a case for licensing biometric systems? on March 31st, 2022.

The event included conversations on how the effectiveness and scope of regulatory and legislative frameworks that address biometric technologies vary greatly across different regions, countries, legal jurisdictions and operating environments.

Additionally, this session addressed the following topics:

  • Who is monitoring the growth or development of new technologies?
  • Should biometrics technology be required to be licensed before used in public situations?
     
  • Technology can be developed in months but monitoring legislation takes years, how can privacy, rights and freedoms be ensured?

This virtual event referenced the State of Biometrics Report and included a discussion from panelists regarding the above topics.
