Biometric authentication is making legacy authentication processes obsolete, with its endless benefits across industries. Facial recognition, fingerprint scanning, and voice recognition — to name a few — help streamline processes, deter fraud, and keep people safe amid the global pandemic.
In Navigating The Emerging Risks Of Biometric Technologies: How To Manage The Technical And Privacy Risks Of Biometrics, Forrester outlines the latest use cases for biometric technologies, as well as the challenges businesses will face with security and regulations. Below are some of their findings:
Both airlines and US Customs and Border Protection are using biometric technology to assist in the process for travelers entering and exiting the United States. The report finds that almost every major US airline is moving towards adopting facial recognition into its security protocols.
The financial sector is always combatting tighter regulations, and in turn it has started to harness the power of biometric technology. Banks are adopting biometric authentication methods such as fingerprint scans, facial recognition, voice recognition, and some banks have even started using fingerprint credit and debit cards.
The use cases for biometric authentication in the healthcare industry are endless. Patients and providers can safely exchange information, hospitals can identify personnel, prescriptions can safely and securely be filled and delivered, to name just a few.
