Biometrics and the Potential Risk Factors


Berlin, Germany -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2021 -- Perhaps one of the biggest challenges that faces the use of biometrics in healthcare today is the potential for hacking of data. The spectrum of attacks on this kind of data ranges from the low tech to the very high tech - and are only likely to increase in frequency and intensity as greater volumes of data start to exist. For those in biometric careers this has to be a key consideration, as well as for the governments that are increasingly integrating biometric information into public infrastructure and the enterprises that are responsible for delivering it. Biometrics help to keep patient information and records safe and secure but there is no doubt that the protection in place needs to evolve at the same speed as the threats to it. This could look like combining it with property or knowledge factors in multi-factor authentication, for example, to avoid faking or hacking of data. Biometrics has huge potential for safeguarding and progress but it's essential that it evolves with adequate security in place.
