ZKAccess offers CEU-accredited course in advanced biometric access control

May 28, 2015 - 

ZKAccess announced it is now offering a free three-credit CEU-accredited course entitled Advanced Biometric Access Control.

The class is designed to instruct physical security integrators on how to successfully migrate from traditional card access systems to biometrics.

The ZKAccess course provides in-depth knowledge on the inner workings of biometrics and how they provide added security and convenience.

Those security integrators looking to gain a greater understanding of biometric security solutions, as well as maintain their professional license, will benefit from the ZKAccess Advanced Biometric Access Control Training Course accredited by both the ESA and BICSI.

The course covers a number of topics, including the history of electronic access control (EAC), essential components of EAC, what is biometrics and how do they enhance security, the benefits of biometrics that are not offered by conventional EAC, a review of biometric devices and their relationship to control panels, standalone biometric readers, privacy/encryption concerns in biometric systems, a comparison of client/server application versus browser based, and how to incorporate or transition to biometric security.

Previously reported, ZKAccess received the ESX Innovation Award for its HD IP access control camera, ZKAccess BioCam 300, in the category of Access Control: Readers/Keypads.
