ISC West to Set the Tone of 2019’s Biometric Security Discourse

ISC West to Set the Tone of 2019's Biometric Security Discourse

ISC West, the largest converged security trade show in the United States, plays an integral role in the biometrics industry. Every April, the conference sets the trends for the rest of the year’s most critical discussions in biometric access, time & attendance, enterprise identity and more. That’s why we partnered with ISC West in 2017, and why we will once again be reporting live from the show floor next week, from April 9-12, bringing you breaking news and audio interviews with identity tech thought leaders.

Biometrics Education is the Key

This year, for the first time, our sibling site FindBiometrics is participating in SIA Education@ISC, the conference’s series of keynotes and panels presented with the Security Industry Association.

On April 10 at 1:45 pm local time, FindBiometrics will present ‘How Biometrics are Enabling the Convergence of Physical and Information Security’ – an hour long interactive panel discussion about the titular change underway in today’s enterprise security landscape. FindBiometrics President Peter O’Neill will moderate an expert lineup:

  • Gary Jones, Vice President, Global Channel & Marketing (Biometric Access & Time), IDEMIA
  • Robert Mongovan, Vice President and General Manager, Aware, Inc.
  • Rob Douglas, CEO, BioConnect
  • Bill Spence, Vice President of Sales, HID Global

“The high profile data breaches of recent years have shown a dire need for biometric authentication in the enterprise, and that’s why FindBiometrics is proud to work with ISC West and SIA to facilitate an educational panel discussion between biometrics experts at this year’s show,” said Peter O’Neill, President of FindBiometrics and Mobile ID World. “Our Year in Review survey – the longest running and most insightful of its kind – shows time and time again that education about biometrics is key to the future of our industry. That why we travel the globe, bringing biometrics experts to the stages of the biggest tech conferences in the world, like ISC West and our other elite premier partners.”

Keeping the Conversation Alive

Our live ISC West coverage is part of Enterprise Biometrics Month 2019, so even when the conference closes, FindBiometrics is keeping the security conversation alive with follow-up reporting, featured articles, and the next entry in its lauded webinar series: ‘Enterprise Biometrics in the Era of the Data Breach‘. Moderated by FindBiometrics Managing Editor Peter Counter, the live webcast will feature a market overview, a rundown of conference highlights, and an expert discussion with executives from IDEMIA, BioConnect and ISC West.
