Biometrics for National Security and Law Enforcement: Training Summit 2013
As technology continues to advance and national security remains at the forefront of discussion, it comes as no surprise that biometrics is a hot topic. The ability for scientists to determine ways to accurately identify people based upon physical and behavioral characteristics has been achieved; however, improvements in equipment, interoperability and database accuracy are essential.
Biometrics is key to our nation’s intelligence and security efforts in the fight against terrorism. Establishing an individual’s identity with certainty provides our military personnel an immediate edge and aids our national security capabilities.
By participating in this conference, you will have the exceptional opportunity to take part in continued discussions where debate, dialogue, and networking are encouraged. By the end of the Biometrics for National Security and Law Enforcement Training Summit, delegates will understand the future of biometrics, new guidelines and standards of biometrics, and the progress towards interoperability.
Our 6th Annual Biometrics for National Security and Law Enforcement Expo provides the venue for you to learn what key decision makers and technology experts anticipate being the future of securing our warfighters, citizens, government employees, and borders.
Key Areas of Discussion Will Include:
- An In-depth Workshop Day Focusing on Secure Interagency Information Sharing
- Exploring Biometrics strategies and Acquisition Efforts
- Examining I.D. Verification Through Diverse Tracked Sessions on DNA, Finger Print, and Facial/Iris Recognition Analysis
- Uncovering Requirements for Cost Effective Biometric Solutions
- Discussing Biometric Capabilities on a National and Local Law Enforcement Scale
At our Biometrics for National Security and Law Enforcement Training Summit you will have the exclusive opportunity to interact, network, and learn from leading representatives from military, government agencies, and private industry.
