The Certified Biometrics Professional (CBP) program is continuing to see growth and increased interest. The program has had candidates from both the public and private sector as well as candidates from all corners of the earth.”By the end of the year we should be somewhere around 400 candidates,” said Richard Ringold with the IEEE Certified Biometrics Professional program.
The program is also being seen by the industry as a positive step. “For one thing, it’s a statement. It’s saying that biometrics is a real profession, and that is something that we have lacked in the past… This actually proves that you have some base-level of the technology,” said Catherine J. Tilton, vice president of standards and emerging technologies at Daon, who is also a Certified Biometrics Professional and helped develop some of the modules.
