April 16, 2014 - 

The European Association for Biometrics and the Association of German Banks are hosting a workshop to discuss biometric banking applications and their practical use.

According to the groups, participants in the workshop will discuss biometric systems to personalize banking transactions at the Association of German Banks in Berlin on May 21, 2014. International companies will present their current procedures and biometrics researchers will discuss future applications.

“Especially in banking, the identity link is very important to ensure the legitimacy of banking transactions,” Alexander Nouak, Chairman of the European Association for Biometrics and head of the Identification and Biometrics Competence Center at Fraunhofer IGD said. “In the process, the security of the biometric data plays a decisive role.”

“Since some smartphones have even been able to recognize their users owing to biometrics, we have seen an increasing interest in using similar procedures,” Waldemar Grudzien, Director of the Retail Banking, Banking Technology business unit in the Association of German Banks said.
