Vulnerabilities & Security - Red Teaming Workshop, USA

21 March 2018 | Crowne Plaza Hotel, Alexandria

Vulnerabilities and security: Red-Teaming biometric systems  

How do you examine the threat landscape and decide if your system is truly secure?

This separately bookable half day workshop will take place on the afternoon of the second day of the US Conference. 

Through the practice of red teaming, attendees will be challenged to look at biometrics and their biometric system specifically and consider its security and vulnerabilities. The focus will be on the threats faced in the present environment with the aim of assisting with decision making, strategies and implementation.

Workshop leader: Ted Dunstone, Managing Director, Biometix; Head, Biometrics Vulnerability Assessment Expert Group
