The biometrics marketplace is currently undergoing the third of three critical market transformations that have occurred over the last two decades. Transformations that have defined the prevailing use-cases and driven related market sector adoption of biometrics. Each of these three transformations has been precipitated by a significant external event – oddly all occurring in the month of September.
- The tragedy of 9/11 in September 2001,
- The introduction of the iPhone 5S in September 2013, and
- The announcement of the Equifax data breach in September 2017.
Together, the impact of these three transformations is accelerating the evolution towards Identifiable Anonymity - digital identification solutions that 1) limit the need to the collect and store citizen and consumer PII (Personally Identifiable Information). and 2) demand that biometric data be completely disaggregated from PII.
