The government in the U.S. has been considering implementing a biometric system for use in the civil servant industry for the past few weeks. This system would hopefully weed out workers who do not show up and so on.
One spokeswoman for the new technology stated that “this program w have started on pensioners will extend to all contributors as they are expected to be registered biometrical. We are looking forward the this program which we have started, will be extended to our government workers.”
The same spokeswoman also stated that “we also want to reach the vulnerable, those who are over 70 and those who live with disability, we are moving forward with this program so that everyone should be captured so that we know the number of people that we have who want to be helped. The issue at hand is that people who were getting their pensions, we know that some of them are dead and some may be ghost pensioners. Moving with time, we are engaging into biometrics so that with time, everyone who gets their pension is registered.”
The hopes are that using this biometric system will help prevent not only fraud in the industry, but also the unnecessary spending of money on those who do not need it or deserve it.
Biometrics have become a large industry with their main focus on security and ease of use. The systems that are currently in place promote high levels of security that outperform the current systems such as PIN identification or a plain old password. Any system that promises the public increased security as well as convenience, is one that will be here to stay. Biometrics are becoming the way of the future, and as we learn to implement them in the modern day, they will quickly become integrated with many aspects of daily life.
