Breakdown FY20’S Major Biometrics & Identity Management Initiatives

Breakdown FY20’S Major Biometrics & Identity Management Initiatives

Biometrics is increasingly becoming a cornerstone of national security. For example, in 2017, President Donald Trump signed an executive order requiring that the top 20 U.S. airports use biometric technology and facial recognition by 2021 for all international passengers. Earlier this year, he signed the National Strategy to Combat Terrorism Travel, which calls for the increased use of biometric technology and data to stop terrorists from entering the U.S.

Ahead of the 14th Annual Biometrics for Government and Law Enforcement Summit, taking place February 26 - 28, 2020 in Washington D.C., we created a breakdown of how federal agencies such DHS, DoS, Dod, and DoJ are leveraging biometrics & identity management solutions to enhance national security. Get an overview of how much the government is spending and how these investments align with greater strategic goals

In 2020, governments all across the globe will invest billions in the latest biometric-powered security solutions such as facial recognition CCTV, fingerprint sensors, iris scanners and even DNA matching. The aim of these projects is to not only enhance security measures in high target areas and reduce fraud, but create a host of new & improved customer, payer, passenger and citizen experiences. To give you a glimpse into where the industry is heading, we created this interactive map to highlight 20 of the major government and law enforcement biometric projects in the works such as:

  • Preparing for the Japan Olympics 2020. How Japan is embracing facial recognition to streamline air travel and biometric-based cashless payment systems ahead of the 2020 Olympics. 
  • How China built the world's largest facial recognition surveillance system and what's next for this market as backlash grows. 
  • India's Digi Yatra project and how it will transform the end-to-end passenger process 
  • How Tanzania leveraged social media influencers to push biometric SIM card registration 
  • Plus! Updates on recent RFPs, calls for bidders and technical requirements from upcoming projects from all around the world
