ABOUT THE AWARDS | 2021

Biometric technologies are fundamental to securing physical and digital identities in a modern society. The incredible advancements made by the dedicated professionals leading this field are helping keep our cities and citizens, our companies and employees and our schools and children safe. Since 2015, the Women in Biometrics Awards have recognized innovative women dedicated to creating a more secure world by guiding this crucial technology market.
