Biometrics 101:
Understanding Biometric Technology And Its Implementation

Gain real-world knowledge of biometrics from one of the industry's leaders in consulting and integration, International Biometric Group (IBG). This pre-conference workshop is a comprehensive tutorial that will give you the fundamentals necessary to understand the real issues involved in deploying biometrics. You will also have the opportunity to network with fellow attendees and obtain an insider perspective on the biometric industry.

Specifically, this interactive workshop will cover:
  • Current state of the art and new developments
  • Major biometric technologies
  • Multimodal biometrics - including the fusion of:
       - Fingerprint
       - Iris recognition
       - Face recognition
  • Major horizontal biometric applications
  • Large-scale integration and project methodology
  • Case studies of major deployments
  • Testing and certification of systems
  • Biometrics spoofing
  • Biometric standards
  • Privacy and biometrics

This workshop will be informal and interactive. It is a great opportunity to gain expert inside information on the world of biometrics and to gain a real grasp on the issues involved in deployment.

WORKSHOP LEADER: Olga Raskin is a Consultant with International Biometric Group (IBG), a leading biometrics research, consulting and integration firm addressing the identity management and security needs of both government and commercial clients. Ms. Raskin served as Operations Manager for IBG's seventh round of Comparative Biometric Testing, the industry's longest-running performance testing program.

Optimizing Biometric Enrollment And Workflow Automation: How To Overcome Deployment Pitfalls, Biometric Quality Issues, And Interoperability Problems

With the rapid deployment of civil biometric enrollment and processing systems for local, state, federal, international, and commercial programs, a host of downstream problems have been exposed. Time to enroll, quality of biometrics captured, and the need for manual processing and re-processing of enrollments and adjudication efforts has greatly hampered many programs. Post-enrollment, many biometric programs have even experienced an inability to use biometrics in production due to quality and interoperability problems stemming from the first steps of enrollment.

Attend this workshop and learn how to overcome the pitfalls and challenges that can develop during a biometric deployment. Specifically, you will:
  • Learn from real-world examples of programs that suffered from early adoption and quality problems and the impact on those efforts
  • Get hands-on experience using cutting-edge technology to ensure high quality enrollments are always obtained from the first step of the process
  • Discuss defining biometric workflows and automation with respect to enrollment, background checks, adjudication, and integration of biometric data with mainstream systems
  • Learn how aggregating and analyzing biometric quality data from hundreds to thousands of enrollments can lead to real-time monitoring and long-term process improvements

WORKSHOP LEADER: Joy Kasaaian, Project Manager with the International Biometric Group (IBG), is a leading expert in the use of biometrics in public and private sector applications. Joy delivers extensive biometric strategic consulting services and manages sales and projects for both biometric and non-biometric firms. Prior to IBG, Joy worked in GlaxoSmithKline's Scientific Computing and Mathematical Modeling Group, and received a Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
