Highlights from "Hacking Biometrics: a CISO Series Event"

Daon's Head of Engineering, Jason Cramer and PNC Bank's Head of Digital Identity & Fraud, Sridhar Kotamraju, recently joined David Spark, producer of CISO series for a lively discussion on "Hacking Biometrics: An hour of critical thinking about using ourselves as a means to enhance the identity journey and our security posture."

Attendees pitched their best bad ideas (Dance Dance Revolution, anyone?) and had a chance to explore the following:

  • What’s the hangup with biometrics? We’ve had it for so long, why is adoption intermittent? 
  • What are uses of biometrics we’re not familiar with (how exactly does behavioral biometrics work)?
  • What types of biometrics are users being more comfortable with (and what are the best liveness techniques)?
  • If we had full adoption of biometrics, what does that mean for the identity game? What kind of shift would we see in overall security?

Find out what we had to say and check out six minutes of the best moments in the video recap.

VeriFLY's Denver Airport Installation featured in Washington Post, USA Today

Travelers flying out of Denver International Airport can now use the new, free VeriFLY app to move safely through the airport with more reliability and reduced contact. VeriFLY allows you to make a reservation for TSA screening in advance of your flight. Your reservation gives you access to an expedited and protected security lane, as well as a reserved train car, allowing you to transit from the main terminal to the concourses on a reserved train car reducing your exposure to others. Each VeriFLY reservation requires successful completion of a brief health questionnaire prior to travel and a temperature scan as you enter the VeriFLY lane.

Powered by Daon, the touchless, biometric (document-free) solution is perfect for health-conscious or high-risk passengers looking for more confidence in their traveler journey.
