Founded in 2000 and based in Northern England with offices in Great Britain and the Middle East, UK Biometrics International is a pioneer in the development and supply of fingerprint recognition technology for the biometrics market. The product range includes fingerprint based access control systems, membership verification and time and attendance systems.
Use of biometric identity cards where identification data is held on a smart card chip rather than centrally eliminates the need for large central Government databases and subsequent risk of compromised data.
The millions of personal financial data records lost this week by HMRC could have been securely protected by biometric authorisation providing access based only on individual biometric parameters which cannot be hacked, stolen or compromised.
With biometrics technology having reached levels of accuracy that meet the demands of industry and government systems, the focus must now change to training argues Shaun Oakes, Operations Director of UK Biometrics.
