Biometrics Institute attended Frontex Borders Event in Warsaw
Biometrics Institute - Fri 22 September 2017
I have been delighted to speak at the Frontex Biometrics on the Move conference in Warsaw on the 29 September 2017. I joined a panel discussing the way head in border management and presented some of the Institute's exciting projects for the coming month including a Border Management survey and a UN Counter-Terrorism project.
I was joined by a fantastic line-up of two other panelists, namely Pat Nemeth from the US Department of Homeland Security - OBIM and the Deputy Commissioner, Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, Singapore, Sethuraj Vijakumar. Both organisations are very supportive members of the Biometrics Institute so it was a pleasure sitting on stage with Pat and VJ.
It was fantastic to connect with many familiar faces and also meet some new players.
The Institute is currently conducting a landscape study on the use of biometrics in the end-to-end border management and we are particularly interested in bringing as many countries into this study as possible.
