Last week at Find Biometrics we continued our month long examination of law enforcement biometrics while mobility held on to its top spot as a fixture of identity management news thanks to the persistent and strong hype generated by Apple.

Week two of Law Enforcement Biometrics Month had us talking about the FBI’s Next Generation Identity program in the featured articles section while news came in regarding the state of tattoo recognition and the key vendors in the UK’s justice market. Here are the week’s top stories in law enforcement biometrics:

Mobility

On the heels of the Apple Pay launch, it seems like there is no end to the mobile biometrics news. Last week marked the launch of a new biometric smartphone for the consumer on a budget, FIDO Ready technology working with Touch ID and speculation about fingerprint sensors on the new iPad. Acuity Market Intelligence also released a new brief illustrating how Apple’s approach to payments, biometrics and user privacy has dramatically shifted the mobile marketplace.

As the deadly Ebola virus continues to slowly spread, border control has become a major global concern. Last week we reported on how biometric technology, combined with Big Data analytics, is helping keep potentially infected persons from inadvertently propagating the killer microbe. Meanwhile, new access control innovations made the news courtesy of Zwipe and Suprema. Here are the news stories that had us talking border control and physical access last week:

In The Workplace

Biometrics can add efficiency and transparency to the workplace, particularly when it comes to time and attendance operations, but last week concerns were being voiced in the realm of professional sports calling for a limit to how much surveillance the NBA should have over its players. Meanwhile in India, biometrics are adding transparency to government operations, giving the public a chance to observe how accountable public staff are in real time. Here are the stories from last week concerning biometric in the workplace:
