The Biometrics Institute today (11 October 2021) celebrates its 20-year anniversary.

As part of the Institute’s anniversary celebrations, we are highlighting how Biometrics Institute Members have recognised the challenges and worked towards good practices to ensure responsible and ethical implementation. To this extent we are releasing the special 20-year Anniversary Report at the Biometrics Institute Congress on the 13 October showcasing how biometrics have made a positive contribution to our world in the areas of privacy and policy; technology innovation; research and development; applications and case studies.

20-year Anniversary Report 2021

As biometric technology development and adoption continues to move at high-speed, the Institute has created a strong basis for its community to address challenges for privacy and policy in a timely manner.

The report contains over 30 success stories including:

*Border management

*Biometrics use in schools and financial institutions

*Refugee management

*Disaster victim identification after the Tsunami

*Biometrics in e-passports and privacy

*Managing digital identities

We’d like all those involved with the industry to help us promote these success stories by sharing on social media or in PR campaigns using the hashtag #20yearanniversary. This is to raise awareness about the positive contribution biometrics have made over the past 20 years.
