Presentation Attack Detection or "PAD" is increasingly a hot topic within the biometrics industry. While this is definitely a step in the right direction, cyber-thieves are still diligently exploiting security gaps in identity proofing and strong customer authentication. Exclusive focus on presentation attacks alone fails to address vulnerabilities to other forms of identity spoofing.
This article will illustrate how PAD alone does not guarantee biometric security. CSOs and Compliance leads must also consider Replay Attack Detection or RAD.

In a world where most transactions are digital, remote and involve fewer and fewer personal interactions, identity is really important.
We use digital accounts to access everything from groceries to border control, from phone apps to pension statements. At the same time, organisations such as retailers, banks and government departments try to learn as much about you as possible to provide the most personalised experience, whether it be for commercial loyalty-card data capture, citizen security or Know-Your-Customer regulatory obligations.

iProov’s first permanent location was a cupboard-esque room at 39 York Road. Kindly described as ‘cosy’ by longstanding iProov team members. Unsurprisingly, very quickly we were bursting at the seams.
So we knocked down the wall and filled the new space with more desks. However, we had the luxurious problem of becoming a successful business. We found ourselves in a cycle of winning deals, expanding our team and running out of space. In total, we knocked down the wall four times.
39 York Road was a loving DIY project. We ripped up the stained blue carpets, replaced the orange filament lights with sparkling LEDs and built two new meeting rooms. ‘IKEA desk construction’ sessions became a Friday afternoon ritual when we had a fresh wave of recruits starting on Monday.

I have recently moved to London for work from the Netherlands. In the highly innovative, fintech capital of the world, I expected opening a bank account to be an easy process. I was prepared for London life to be expensive but I didn’t anticipate how difficult it would be to open a bank account to actually pay for something.

Recently, San Franciso has become the first US city to ban Facial Recognition. However, there is a worthwhile clarification to make between Facial Recognition and Biometric Authentication.
Today, an increasing number of traditional problems are solved digitally. For example, opening a bank account from your sofa, rather than trekking down to your local branch (if you can find it). But many services still require a face to face interaction or demand you add yet another password to your quiver. Services like renting a car, accessing your 24hr gym or even crossing a border.
