HRS assists Latvian Government in Biometric Data management

Human Recognition Systems : 11 November, 2009  (Application Story)
Biometric experts to assess current capability of Latvian Ministry of the Interior and identify the development process for the country's biometric systems
Human Recognition Systems (HRS), a biometric and identity management consultancy, has recently been awarded the contract for developing the business case for procurement and implementation of Biometric Data Processing System for the Ministry of the Interior of Latvia in partnership with Latvian IT specialist Datorzinibu Centrs.

The aim of the project - to be carried out over the next three months - is to develop an in-depth understanding of the "As Is" state of biometric projects in Latvia and analyse launch and roll out of large biometric identity projects globally.

The findings and recommendations will be used to facilitate development of the "To Be" state of the project. Subsequently this information will be used to draft a Request for Proposal for the implementation of the new project.

HRS was selected for the project based on its extensive experience of working with major organisations on large and complex biometric projects, including national identity schemes.

Amit Singh, business development consultant at HRS, said: "This is an important win for us, adding to our portfolio of work advising on large-scale biometric identity schemes.

"We look forward to working with the Ministry of the Interior of Latvia and we're confident that our research will ensure that any biometric implementation policies are founded in robust intelligence."

In 2007, Latvia introduced an ePassports scheme in which 1.1million documents were issued containing digital passport photographs and these were subsequently updated to include fingerprint data.

HRS is an award winning consultancy and system integrator specialising in biometrics, identity management and video processing technology.

The firm has developed multi-biometric, smart surveillance and identity management solutions for companies such as Manchester Airport, The MoD, Carillion and Liverpool Merseyside Police.
