Biometrics use cases, ethics to be reviewed in webinars from Oosto, Simprints, EAB, FIDO Alliance


A variety of new webinars focusing on different applications and issues related to biometric technologies have been announced by Oosto, Simprints, EAB and the FIDO Alliance.

Upcoming Oosto Events Highlight the Role of Biometrics in Physical Security

Israel-based security firm Oosto has announced two separate online events that will take place in May.

The first, scheduled for May 11 at 11:00 a.m. CDT (12:00 p.m. EDT), will focus on how to use facial biometrics and artificial intelligence (AI) with security cameras to prevent violence and ensure safety. stadium security.

The second, scheduled for May 19 at 11:00 a.m. EDT (4:00 p.m. BST), will explore why organizations should consider physical security as a primary pillar of their cybersecurity strategy.

Specifically, the event will examine how physical breaches can facilitate hacking, as well as vice versa. The 30-minute event will also examine how biometric camera surveillance systems can be deployed to protect business perimeters as well as other sensitive areas.

Both webinars are free but require registration.

Simprints event looks at “responsible biometrics”

Building on its 2021 ID4Africa series keynote, Simprints will host a 60-minute session on “responsible biometrics” on June 7.

The online session will be led by James Eaton-Lee, director of privacy, responsible data and risk at Simprints, and is aimed at practitioners, ICT4D and technical staff, as well as people whose roles include policy, decision-making, funding, and deployment of biometric and functional identity systems.

The webinar will explore basic data protection planning, modality, needs/benefits assessment, technical considerations including model protection and security, and partner relationships. It will be followed by a Q&A.

This is a free, registration-based event available by following this link.

EAB webinar to explore fraud prevention using biometrics

The next European Association for Biometrics (EAB) Virtual Lunch & Learn will take place on May 17, 2022, from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. CEST.

The event will be chaired by Victor Gomis, Head of Fraud and Biometrics at Nuance, who will share his latest research.

Gomis will assert that while fraud attempts may never cease to exist, they can be successfully combated using secure authentication technologies.

Registration for the event is free and can be completed by following this link.

Authenticate virtual summit looks at modernizing healthcare

Organized by the FIDO Alliance, the online summit will take place on June 16, 2022 at 9am PT and will examine how the pandemic has pushed the digitalization of the healthcare sector around the world.

At the same time, the Alliance argues that this digital shift has not necessarily corresponded to the development of valid authentication technologies that are needed to secure the increased amount of data that needs to be protected.

Speakers for the event have yet to be announced, but information about them will be available on this webpage, where webinar registration is also available.
