Biometrics for Government and National Security 2014

Download the Latest Brochure

Now in its 7th annual edition, IDGA’s Biometrics for Government and National Security is ranked among our best attended events year after year.  2014 will be no different as our stellar speaker line up promises the ultimate setting to discuss the latest challenges and opportunities in government and defense biometrics.  We welcome you to join us and hundreds of other attendees to preview the future of biometric initiatives and technology, first hand from those leading the direction of our upcoming efforts.   

All new for this year is the expansion of our program to include federal government and commercial applications.  With the vulnerability of financial, health and other personal data today, it is vital to consider the potential of biometrics not only for the warfighter, but the American citizen as well.  Therefore, our speaker faculty will include DoD, DHS, FBI and the Intelligence Community, as well as speakers from Health, NIST, private banking and more. 

With biometrics rapidly becoming the go-to solution for everything from border control to law enforcement to financial authentication, there is no question why the biometrics market is expected to triple in size between 2010-2015.  U.S. authentication capabilities are in a state of great transition and Biometrics for Government and National Security 2014 will be the first major forum of 2014 for decision makers to express requirements and listen to industry solution providers.  Come join us and establish yourself as a key player in this burgeoning field!
