Human Recognition Systems CEO discusses impact of biometric technology on oil & gas at IFSEC 2014


Human Recognition Systems founder and CEO Neil Norman recently presented at security and fire solutions conference IFSEC 2014, where he discussed “How Biometric Technology is Changing Site Management and Safety for Critical Infrastructure in the Oil & Gas Industry”.

Held in the SMART Buildings Theatre within the IFSEC section of the exhibition, the presentation covered “everything from mobile mustering in remote locations to the existing disjointed approach to identity management within the Oil & Gas sector,” writes Norman in his blog.

Norman also showed how oil & gas companies can use a combined approach to identity verification, skills certification and site access control using biometric, cloud and mobile technology to enhance worksite safety and simplify worksite management.

Using Human Recognition Systems’ own Identity Assured Management approach, Norman highlighted how mobile technologies can ultimately protect and save the lives of employees in remote locations.

As the largest event for the security industry, IFSEC International covers security and fire solutions, access control and biometrics, counter terror, CCTV and video surveillance, intruder alarms, IP security, intelligent buildings, physical security and lone workers.

The event drew more than 24,000 visitors, over 650 leading manufacturers, suppliers and distributors spanning 100 countries,

Norman has made the entire presentation available on the Human Recognition Systems SlideShare channel.

Norman was recently reappointed CEO in February 2014, working with his predecessor John Tonkiss to develop a new strategic vision for the company in which it will focus on enterprise-class identity assured products for controlled working environments.
