The forum, “Next Steps in Identity Technologies: Biometrics and Beyond,” will bring together biometric companies, Federal agencies and university stakeholders to discuss the future of identity and biometrics technologies and their impact on the State’s economy. Government agency officials will review the status of identity management initiatives in the public sector, particularly regarding the major expansion underway at the FBI data center in Harrison County. Other speakers will address the future and the need for more private-sector development capitalizing on the talent/brainpower in the region.
