BiometriX 2011 takes shape

August 2011 News

The successful BiomteriX conference will return this year with a new focus and renewed opportunities to network with the industry.

I AM

The theme for the 2011 event is I AM, the capability of systems and processes to identify and authenticate that individuals are who they say they are, what rights have been associated with them and the access and privilege they have. It is the integration of identity management and access control into a function and secure business process.

The conference seeks to cover the concept of identity management, defining it in today’s business and political world, identify global and local trends in identity management and best implementation practices. We will also look at some of the pitfalls in implementing effective identity management practices in organisations. Far from traditional card-based access controls, effective identity management needs more than a card that can be lost, stolen or forged to accurately authenticate and assign rights to people. Additionally, with so many solutions out there, how does a business ensure that its access control solutions can integrate with the latest identity management processes and existing business applications and processes.

This conference, now in its third appearance, will highlight various concepts on integrated identity management and access control.
