How can biometric technology fight public sector benefit fraud?

Using Biometric Technology To Fight Public Sector Benefit Fraud

April 19 2023

The pandemic caused a scramble to digitize typically in-person services in order to provide extensive financial aid to those in need. Criminals watched eagerly as money poured into public schemes and programs without adequate controls in place to protect those funds. 

This new wave of fraudsters utilize sophisticated generative AI technologies, such as deepfakes, digitally injected attacks, and synthetic identities to undermine the government benefits programs and siphon funds away from those in need. 

Given the amount of money at stake, how stolen benefits funds undermine their intended humanitarian efforts, and how these stolen funds can fuel further nefarious initiatives – a mission-critical solution is required. 

Inside this white paper, we lay out a vision for using science-driven technology to curtail fraud and ensure that public sector funds are going to the genuine, intended recipient.
