Director, US-VISIT Program
US Department of Homeland Security
Collecting biometric information is a current challenge of the DHS, but its technology is constantly evolving. Once this biometric information is collected, however, what happens to the information? How is it shared? How is it exploited for maximized intelligence operations? This session delves into the structure for clarifying business needs and supporting negotiations on risk-appropriate solutions when organizations share identity (and supporting policy and control) information.

(Lunch will be served)
Intelligence and information assurance are keys to the efficient operations of DoD and Homeland Security initiatives, and a large part of this includes biometric data collection. Government agencies are therefore finding the need for advanced biometric devices and processors. This session will discuss the collection of facial biometrics and mobile ID (fingerprint) collection.
The MITRE Corporation
The US Department of Homeland Security relies heavily on biometric development and deployments. This session begins with a review of past and present biometric technologies, and how the government organizations have created a cohesive and ongoing infrastructure for the continuous improvement and advancement of biometric technologies today. The transition to operational deployment, however, remains to be a challenge. As a result, this workshop will address and evaluate current and future concerns of biometric systems for homeland security operations.

Large-Scale Biometric Procurement and Testing
As biometric data currently enjoys wider acceptance and deployment, storage and privacy of this data becomes an area of growing concern. Possible misuse of an individual’s personal information is a problem that many organizations and companies are looking to find solutions to. This session examines the biometric data dilemma, and then presents biometric risk solutions to help formalize associated risks.
