Biometrics early adopters reveal secrets, challenges

Gathered at the Millennium Hilton across the street from the site, attendees of the Fall 2004 Biometrics Summit heard about the challenges and benefits seen by those who would implement biometrics, both before and after the 9/11 attacks that put a greater focus on security needs. They also heard about why some companies still aren’t yet ready for biometrics, technology that uses the personal characteristics of users to identify them.
