About the Speech:
Fast-moving developments in mobile ID technology are creating new possibilities for police and immigration services in the European Union. They are also providing new opportunities for innovation in the ICT industry. Frank Smith, Chair of the EU Mobile identification interoperability group (e-MOBIDIG), discussed developing partnerships between these sectors in applying biometric technology to internal security challenges. The e-MOBIDIG brings together each of these key stakeholders, and met for the first time during Ireland’s Presidency from 27-28 March 2013. Mr. Smith’s address at the Institute was of interest both to criminal justice and ICT industry representatives working in Ireland.
About the Speaker:
Frank Smith has chaired the European Union Mobile identification interoperability group (e-MOBIDIG) since November 2010. He is a Deputy Director in the UK Border Agency, responsible for policy relating to biometrics, mobile devices, fingerprinting and other forms of identity management relating to policing and immigration. He has chaired the Technology Working Group of the Intergovernmental Consultations on Migration, Asylum and Refugees (IGC), during which time he oversaw the publication of a Business Guide to Immigration Technology.
