You are the Password: Frictionless Biometric Security

April 11, 2018, 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM

Sands 304 Level 1


Are you tired of trying to remember multiple log-ins, passwords and pins? Think about how you safe keep all your log in credentials; are you old school and write them on a piece of paper, keep them in a spread sheet, enter them into a “secure” app? Today’s security methods are annoying for consumers, resulting in an annoying relationship with security. Consumers understand the necessity of security but they want the convenience, simplicity, quality and to be part of a system they can trust. Biometrics are changing how we interact with the world and enables the transition to invisible transactions by offering high-quality security and ease-of-use, without contact with the device. Rather than rely on passwords or physical forms of ID, biometrics are specific, unique and vary per individual. If the rise of mobile reduced the need for a computer, the rise of biometrics will reduce the need for several physical devices because you are the credential.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Define the types of biometrics available today
2. Illustrate the concept of "frictionless transactions"
3. Describe how biometrics can help borders and business
