World Border Security Congress to address identity and biometrics at the border
Identity, biometrics and advanced passenger information (API) at the border will be some of the key subjects addressed at the World Border Security Congress to be held in Morocco next March.
The “Identity and Biometrics at the Border – Compliance, Application and Implementation” session will address how ease of travel for bona fide travelers has become more complicated despite new technologies such as biometrics and e-visas and how can biometrics can be implemented in compliance within legal, privacy and data protection requirements and be more effectively applied and integrated with trusted traveler programs and other data sources to ensure the integrity of the traveler to speed up the travel process.
The “Standardization of Systems and Making Advanced Passenger Information (API) Work” session will address how few trusted traveled programs integrate and communicate to create a more global benefit of passenger clearance and information sharing and if it is possible for standardization to occur and how can API and PNR sharing be made to work more effectively.
Confirmed speakers discussing these topics include: Josef Iroko, General Legal Counsel Board Secretary, Ghana National Identification Authority, Ghana; Don Enrique Belda Esplugues, Deputy Director General of Communications and Information Systems for Security, Ministry of Interior, Spain; Ben Ball, Government Market Director, Crossmatch; Mam Sait Jallow, Regional Director, ICAO, WACAF Office, and; Andrew Priestley, Border Management Solutions Manager, Rockwell Collins.
