Biometrics can be a great way to improve convenience and reduce fraud—they help you make sure that you’re providing the right privileges to the right individuals. However, biometrics are inherently probabilistic technologies that create challenges. They also raise questions about their efficacy and social impact, and bring up tricky legal and policy concerns, too.
This webinar will examine how biometric technologies can enhance (and create challenges) in Trust and Safety across five key pillars: user assurance, fraud, security, data stewardship, and regulatory compliance.

Key takeaways:
  • Identify ways in which biometric technologies enhance trust and safety relationships.
  • Outline challenges that biometric technologies may introduce in trust and safety efforts.
  • Understand the impact that biometrics will have with regard to fraud detection, cybersecurity, especially with regard to OWI’s 5 building blocks of identity.
