Civil Service World Briefing: Biometrics in practice
Biometric technologies provide secure and efficient solutions to a range of policy challenges, with the most compelling applications in the areas of border security and public safety. But, as with any new solutions, the pace of technological development can often outstrip the ability of governments to implement change.
At a time when the UK is re-designing its customs and borders arrangements for the post-Brexit world, it’s vital that policy and operational teams are equipped to take full advantage of the technologies on offer, and to prepare for those that are being developed.
This webinar briefing, hosted by Civil Service World in partnership with Leidos, will bring together experts from different fields to discuss the latest applications of biometrics in border security and public safety and how we can effectively and efficiently implement new technologies to support policy outcomes.
Join us to learn about best practices from across the UK and the world, and catch up on key discussions and themes from the 2018 Biometrics Congress.
The Webinar will take place on 19 October at 13:00-14:00
