Asia Pacific Conference 2018
The Leading Forum for Biometric Users - Delivering Identity Assurance and Authentication
The Biometrics Institute is proud to present the 2018 Biometrics Institute Asia-Pacific Conference, to be held in Sydney on 30-31 May. Now in its 17th year, the conference continues to bring together biometric users from key government agencies, commercial organisations and technology providers to share ideas and discuss the opportunities biometrics offer and its implementation challenges.
We are committed to facilitating an increased level of current knowledge and skills for the sector through delivering training courses and workshops. These provide participants the opportunity to gain insights, receive practical knowledge, identify strategic challenges and potential pitfalls to avoid.
In conjunction with the Asia-Pacific Conference, we have organised two workshops on topical subjects and encourage you to book early to secure your place.

Privacy Impact Assessment Workshop Sydney
When: 1 June 2018
A Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) is a process which helps organisations plan their privacy policies and practices so that risks are anticipated and the privacy of people dealing with that organisation is protected.
All PIAs should be conducted at the planning stage of any new business development and it is especially important to do this when introducing biometrics.
Facilitated by Hon. Terry Aulich, this half day course will help you develop a PIA tool for planning, rolling out and managing a business development which contains a biometric. REGISTER NOW
