It will happen. Sooner or later, just as the previous large hacks affected large parts of the population.

“We can’t bury our heads in the sand when we’re talking about securing biometrics on devices that ultimately are responsible for keeping us safe."
“Having your biometrics stored on a database or devices connected to an unprotected and easily hackable network is comparable to leaving your home unlocked in a bad neighborhood while on vacation and hoping that you won’t get robbed by the time you get back,”

Of all the data that cybercriminals can steal, biometrical data is the worst hack.

In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category

Are you feeling confident in the ways your biometrics are being stored now?
Were you confident in the password storage methods used by everyone? Now, let us talk about our biometrics and the risk of them being stolen.
It will happen. Sooner or later, just as the previous large hacks affected large parts of the population.

Where are your biometrics stored?
• On any mobile phone, tablet or computer you ever used.
• In the cloud of any manufacturer application you use, even in countries which may not respect your country’s laws on privacy if something bad happens.
• In every government database which has collected it, ever. (such databases are often breached – let’s remember the OPM hack, the Turkish citizenship database hack and many others, too many to mention

Biometrics are for life, you cannot change your biometrics like passwords, credit cards or social security numbers.

As biometrics, can be the answer to Identity theft and secure access, its need to be stored in a secure way.
If we don’t change our biometric security protocols, the consequences are that we will lose more and more of our private information and become a victim of ID theft.

Qafis has developed and created a secure biometric system to store all biometrical data, it’s called the Biometric SSL server, a separated server where only the biometric data is stored.
Together with the Qafis BSSLpass, an anti-fraud solution for web and mobile applications, online transactions, and web accessible login screens or the Qafis BSSLtracker a continuous authentication system on desktops and websites we can protect the entire user session against unauthorized access online and offline.
