Biometrics will play a vital role in cybersecurity. Just look at the recent appointment of Leidos to handle a project with the UK Home Office, where the firm will be transforming critical elements of the country’s national biometrics systems supporting the UK’s security departments, including law enforcement, immigration services, and border control. The Home Office will unite its police and immigration biometrics programs under a single service-management structure in advance of a potential move into the public cloud. The appointment is indicative of the UK and other countries’ desires to improve their security through biometric technology—a common uptake among countries seeing more people than ever crossing their borders, both legally and illegally.
