Episode Notes

Transcript

Behavioral biometrics is an emerging topic in the security sector. Users are profiled in how they use specific applications. These patterns of usage establish something like a behavioral fingerprint, which can keep your assets secure.

Banks use biometrics to prevent fraud from websites and mobile applications. What if someone found your unlocked phone, went to your banking app and was able to transfer money? If the application is trained to your personal biometric behavioral print, this transaction can be flagged.

There are many other uses for behavioral biometrics we will discuss and continue to pay attention to its use across industries as the field grows.
