The world has gone through the use of "a slap on the back, a shake of a hand, signs or characters written on walls, leaves or parchment, names written on paper," to the use of tokens, smart cards, magnetic stripe cards, pins, and passwords. What happened to the good old-fashioned signature, the most recognized and accepted symbol of intent? In today's world, how can we make efficient use of the "signature?" In what ways can we improve upon it? At this Pub, come hear about advancements in handwritten signatures and biometrics. Mr. Bruce will discuss how these advancements are being deployed today and what they mean for you as an individual and consumer, including your privacy and security.
