Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement

  • February 27-March 1, 2019
  • Washington, DC, United States

Identity Management & Biometrics

Returning for its 13th iteration, Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement is back and ready to deliver you 3 filled days of action pact content on the latest priorities, challenges and future developments of our biometric and identity management community. Identity has become a core vehicle that enables governments, commercial enterprises and individuals to conduct a diversity of business functions such as financial transactions, transit across national borders, enforce laws, secure infrastructure and access personal and government devices. As we look to address evolving threats we seek innovative solutions that are designed with privacy and security in mind. Today's increasingly globalized and digital world is demanding that biometrics, coupled with biographics, become the identity management standard.

Don't miss out on joining an audience comprised of 200+ Directors of Security, Operations, IT, Identity Management, Biometrics, Policy, Heads of Acquisition, Chiefs, Program Managers, Industry Executives and Academia from across the nation as we discuss challenges at the forefront of national and global security.

Current advances and topics will include:

  • Identity enterprises and enhancing the exchange of data with security, storage and network connectivity
  • Tools & applications to support vetting and verifying identities
  • Automating processes to enhance speed, accuracy and force protection capabilities
  • Developing user friendly technology to support force protection and operations
  • Advancements in interoperable multimodal systems to support operations
  • Delivering state-of-the-art policing capabilities to support law enforcement operations


What are the Benefits of Attending?

  • Learn the most up to date requirements for multi-modality and mobility in biometrics tools
  • Explore the latest technology for reducing error margins across multiple modes of identity recognition
  • Discover techniques for securing biometrics tools from spoofing
  • Hear the latest defense requirements for biometrics
  • Explore cloud-based solutions to large scale data requirements


Highlights of 2019

  • Mobile Biometric Technology - Learn the latest technology requirements to achieve mobile device biometric identification. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI's) Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) is seeking vendors for the development of a mobile application that can capture biometrics on android-based devices.
  • Facial Recognition Modality at the Border - US Customs and Border protection is leveraging one of the most popular biometric modalities, facial recognition, as a tool at ports of entry. This technology is critical to identification of wanted persons and in border control deployments and can streamline security operations.
  • Video Analytics - According to a new report from Homeland Security Research, entitled "Video Analytics, ISR, Intelligent Video Surveillance & Object Recognition: Asia-Pacific Market-2015-2020", the Asia Pacific video analytics market will undergo a growth of 19 percent between 2015 and 2020.
  • Rapid DNA - Rapid DNA Analysis technology brings full automation of profile development from a reference sample swab. The "swab in - profile out" process consists of automated extraction, amplification, separation, detection and allele calling without human intervention.
  • Multimodal Biometric Authentication - Multimodal biometric authentication systems take input from a single or multiple biometric devices for measurement of two or more different biometric characteristics to ensure authentication accuracy.


We will also take an in-depth look at:

  • Leveraging cloud computing for biometric data to speed up process times
  • Solutions to address "big data" requirements
  • Transitioning out of legacy systems to new databases and tracking platforms
  • Technologies to improve biometric accuracy (from 96% to 98.5%)
  • Intuitive scanners that adapt to challenging lighting and stability environments
  • Operational Efficiency
  • Technical Training Day includes a site tour of CBP/DHS new Maryland Test Facility (MdTF)
  • National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) Biometrics Domain (NBD) Training Workshop
  • Focused sessions on mobile and multi-modal biometrics innovation
  • In-depth look at video analytics for real time authentication... and much
