Biometrics - how comfortable are we with it? An open discussion

Critical Tech



At this meetup we will talk about biometrics and how convenient/ comfortable they are regarding security. We will as well talk about how critical we should look at them when talking about our data and digital self.

We will have one speaker who works in IT project management and who will tell us more about palm secure, which uses the palm of our hands as a security feature.

After that, let's join into an open discussion with beer and pizza!
