ABOUT THE AWARDS | 2022

[/vc_column][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1470969101223{padding-bottom: 50px !important;}”][vc_column_text]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.

The awards will be presented on May 24 during one of the security industry’s most prestigious events, the SIA GovSummit. Prior award winners represent the very best in our industry, and it is time to add the 2022 class to this elite group.
