9:45 am - 10:30 am Enhancing Security with Multi-modal Authentication Systems

Multimodal biometric systems allow multiple methods of identification which creates stronger security. They are more accurate, reliable, and provide less room for
vulnerability against attacks.
• Replacing passwords with multi-modal biometrics to provide convenience and low password management costs
• Increasing verification accuracy to enhance protection
• Combining biometrics with cloud based solutions

10:30 am - 11:00 am Networking Break

11:00 am - 11:45 am Harmonizing Security, Policy and Experience

Glenn Krizay - Director, Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency
Biometrics deal with the personal make up of humans which requires proper policy management. How do we ensure that biometric advancements are compliant with
ethics standards?
• Using technology that match and align with policies and standards
• Using biometrics responsibly, catering to the needs and wants of humans

11:45 am - 12:45 pm Lunch

12:45 pm - 1:30 pm Your Finger is the Key to the Future

The world is now introducing the biometric payment card. Completing a transaction just got easier due to the combination of biometrics and your bank card.
• Removing the need to put in a pin after every transaction even with contactless cards
• Participating in an in-depth enrollment process to protect your data
• Performing transactions with your fingerprint at your local store

1:30 pm - 2:15 pm Preventing and Vetting Insider Threats with Behavioral Biometrics

An insider threat can be malicious or unintentional and may be difficult to detect. Utilizing behavioral biometrics would provide identity by keystroke, mouse and touch.
• Detecting a threat with continuous user authentication
• Replacing the inconvenience of passwords to secure systems and avoid fraudulent identification

2:15 pm - 3:00 pm Incorporating Behavioral Biometrics in Ensuring Safety and Continuous Authentication

Analyzing the behavior of humans such as their speech, key strokes, gait, signature and cognition is starting to become more acceptable for the everyday consumer. The
next step is to use it to maintain top notch security in government and corporations.
• Using behavioral biometrics as a form of user authentication
• Ensuring users adapt to multifactor authentication (MFA)

3:00 pm - 3:45 pm Advancing Standoff Biometrics in the Defense Sector

Standoff Biometrics for moving subjects can be troubling, due to clarity of images or the environment in general. Learn how the use of applications and systems can
increase visibility and provide accurate biometric data
• Using applications that provide accurate facial recognition results even in challenging environments and correct atmospheric turbulence
• Improving long range imaging in real time

3:45 pm - 3:45 pm Closing Remarks
