BiometriX 2011 will focus on the subject of identifying people with 100% accuracy.
“I AM” is the capability of systems and processes to identify and authenticate that individuals are who
they say they are, what rights are subsequently associated with them and the access and privileges
they have. It is the integration of IM and AC into a functional and secure business process.

Identity management

  • How can organisations go about deciding how to implement an effective IM programme? What matters? Best practices, processes and integration with existing systems? What support is there from IT systems, such as ERP?

  • What technology is available that helps organisations plan and implement IM?
  • Case studies

Access control

  • What are the latest trends in AC? Is the move to integrated physical and logical AC a reality or still a vendorís pipe dream?
  • Is there an increased move to biometrics? Is fingerprint biometrics losing ground to other technologies? We have seen more interest in facial and vein recognition, what other identification options can businesses consider? What standards have and are being adopted locally, in Africa and the world?
  • Is the integration of AC and IM on the enterprise agenda? What about in the public sector? Should it be?
  • Case studies

Integrated IM and AC

  • Tricks and traps in integration. What to look out for? What to avoid? Processes that streamline the project.
  • Looking ahead at the integrated IM/AC world of the future.
  • Does anyone have a clear definition of identity management that can be translated into clear and implementable business processes?
