BiometricUpdate.com featured on Financial Sense Newshour

December 23, 2014 - 

BiometricUpdate.com was recently the focus of a radio interview featured on the Financial Sense Newshour.

Rawlson King, a contributing editor and lead researcher at BiometricUpdate.com, talked to Cristofer Sheridan, Senior Editor at Financial Sense about the latest developments and trends in the biometric technology space.

The 40 minute discussion focused on recent comments made by Obama’s head cybersecurity adviser to “kill passwords” and use biometrics for greater security in financial transactions and elsewhere, as well as the differences and advantages between various biometric technologies.

During the interview, King noted that the global biometrics market will grow to US$15 billion by 2015 from its 2012 estimated value of US$7 billion.

He also stated that new market research from BiometricUpdate.com predicts that the inclusion of biometrics in mobile devices will generate about US$9 billion worth of revenue by 2018.

King will join a long list of well-respected investors and analysts who are regularly interviewed at Financial Sense, including: David Rosenberg, Gary Shilling, James Grant, Kyle Bass, Steve Forbes and many others. Financial Sense Newshour is currently providing a free holiday trial.
