A report by British anti-fraud organisation Cifas has predicted that biometrics will increasingly be linked to cybersecurity.The report finds that fraud prevention is increasingly becoming an urgent issue.Sandra Peaston, assistant director of insight at Cifas, writes “in 2015 Cifas member organisations recorded 170,000 cases of identity fraud. Clearly, the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) that is still the standard (names, address, birthdates, phone numbers etc.) and the 'what you know' element of the identification/authentication process is in the hands of fraudsters and being exploited.”Peaston told SC Magazine about the issue, “Given this, it's unsurprising that organisations are looking to biometrics to help overcome this problem. If an organisation finds it has two different applications, in two different names, but both accompanied by the same fingerprint (for example), it can easily see that at least one of those applications is highly likely to be fraud.”
