Brave New World-Biometrics in HR
Human resources (HR) professionals often have to deal with errors in recording employees’ effectiveness while accomplishing their jobs. My colleague Ted Rohm

biometrics fingerprints  blog post of how biometrics can help with these HR challenges. He makes the case that biometrics technology is an option worth considering for certain aspects of business operations. As Ted mentions in his article, the most common use cases of biometrics in HR are time and attendance, access control, and shop floor data collection. All these aspects are related to tracing employee punching accurately. In so doing, HR technology attempts to eliminate buddy punching, enforce compliance with company-specif

Smart Shoppers Go Abroad for Affordable Information Security Programs


Ernest Hemingway said, "If you want to meet interesting people you have to go to interesting places." Graduate programs in cryptography and information security in the U.S. have exorbitant tuition costs. Universities overseas and in Canada are much more affordable. Be a smart shopper and look at the International alternatives before signing a huge loan for an advanced degree in information security or cryptography in the United States.

Wetmetrics


The Internet is having an identity crisis. Long regarded as a powerful tool for cost reduction and service enhancement, the Internet is falling short of its promise because of the real and perceived threat of identity theft. Financial losses and insurance costs are mounting, as organizations struggle to protect their information perimeters and improve the strength of their authentication systems to ensure that the authorized user is present during the sign-in process. The widespread use and misuse of passwords as authentication tokens is generally cited as a cause of the accelerating erosion of user confidence and the increasing incidence of identity theft. It is generally agreed that passwords are not enough. Much has been lost, however, in the race toward person-present authentication systems. While the application of passwords is fraught with risk, the introduction of complex authentication infrastructures and cumbersome end user technology has eroded usability and increased the cost of security dramatically. This paper describes a new authentication approach that retains the simplicity and low cost of passwords, while gracefully introducing as much person-present assurance as is required by the application.

Retinal scans and fingerprints are clearly something you are, and combined with a password or PIN are constitutive of a multi-factor authentication system. While some biometric authentication mechanisms can provide person presence, these systems come at significant additional expense and severely curtailed convenience when compared to passwords alone. Wetmetrics embodies the relative merits of dynamic versus Read More

Controlling Access, Authentication and Data on the End Point: A Review of DigitalPersona Pro 5.1 for Enterprises


Security breaches are perpetrated by a wide variety of external and internal sources, including hacktivists, targeted attackers, and profit-motivated cybercriminals, as well as through mundane everyday occurrences, such as missing laptops and thumb drives. To address these compliance and privacy issues, organizations have responded by adding layers of controls and integrating them with varied results. Now, those organizations realize that making security simpler is the ultimate strategy for ensuring end user adoption of new security measures and meeting multiple, overlapping regulatory requirements. This paper is a review of DigitalPersona Pro, its integrated approach, and its features and efficiencies in these areas.
