Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement
26-28 July, 2017 | Washington, D.C.
Identity Innovation: Requirements for Next Generation Government and Law Enforcement Applications
With the increase in mobile biometrics market expected to grow from USD 4.03 billion in 2015 to USD 49.33 billion by 2022, it is critical to understand the transitions and trends of a rapidly evolving innovative market. Driven by the growing demand for government initiatives to improve efficiencies and the adaptation of innovation, the summit will bring together an audience comprised of 120+ Secretaries, Directors of Security Agencies, Heads of Acquisition, Biometric Program Managers and Industry Executives from the U.S. and regional partners to discuss the challenges and success shaping security for the current dynamic world and future.
The U.S. Government has identified preeminent challenges facing biometric programs, including maximizing mobile and multi-modal authentication technology to expand reach and enable flexibility while maintaining speed and accuracy guidelines. Additionally the management and development of more efficient and effective large-scale operational capabilities and the establishment of standards for plug-and-play performance and system interoperability will inform our discussion throughout the event.
