Technological Advances in Identity, Security Focus of Integrated Biometrics Event Participation in South Carolina, Africa and Australia

SPARTANBURG, S.C. — Integrated Biometrics (, developer of the world’s smallest and lightest FBI-compliant fingerprint scanners, is continuing to share best practices in enrollment and verification technology by participating in several important events here in the U.S. as well as overseas. The company is sending staff to ID3Africa in Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania June 2-4; the Biometrics Institute Asia-Pacific Conference in Sydney, Australia May 27-28; and the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association (AFCEA) Biometrics Community of Interest meeting May 27 in North Charleston, S.C. May 27.

“As biometric identification devices continue to get smaller and more portable, it is essential that we maintain our ability to support new mobile requirements by continuing to actively learn from other industry leaders across the world,” Steve Thies, CEO said, adding, “We’re thrilled to be able to respond to invitations to present at events like AFCEA in Charleston and share our knowledgebase as well.”

The AFCEA event titled “Building Next Generation, Full Spectrum Identity Operations Capacity for the Naval, Joint, National and Coalition Warfighter” will provide perspectives on challenges, competency development, and public/private partnerships in areas related to biometrics and identity intelligence in defense, government, industry and academia sectors.

“Identity, Security and Trust – Creating a seamless customer experience in the physical and digital world” May 27 in Australia features government, law enforcement, and private industry security experts and has attracted major international sponsors like Lockheed Martin, UNiSYS, NEC, Northrop Grumman and others.

June’s ID4Africa event is an annual forum and expo focused on digital identity and its applications for driving socio-economic development in Africa. The forum is comprehensive in its coverage of the issues involved from foundational identity programs such as national ID and civil registration, to functional applications such as the use of digital identity in social protection and labor, elections, health care, mobile payments, to improving national security, border management and population management of refugees and other migratory groups.
