AFCEA: Global Identity Summit Kicks-Off In Tampa

The march to implement biometric technologies in national security and at the enterprise continues. In two short years, consumers will see biometrics playing a major role in access control both at the physical and logical level. Modalities like fingerprints, iris, facial recognition and DNA will be incorporated in combinations to establish individual identity and secure data in government and business.


Day one consisted of three hours of training, conducted by industry experts, on topics like biometrics, biographics and  smart card technologies. This is one event that mainstream media should look to for a solid foundation on issues and technologies. The Global Identity Summit (GIS) is an annual event held in Tampa, FL

Today’s event was followed by a Meet and Greet in the Exhibition Hall. Great event!
