The global market for biometrics for banking and financial services to reach $ 8.9 billion by 2026

The turning point of the next decade is expected to be more difficult for banks and financial institutions, as security breaches become more and more sophisticated with technological advancements. Money laundering has become widespread and represents around 2 to 5% of global GDP. One of the measures actively pursued by banks is biometrics, as the technology helps create a secure banking environment by reducing instances of identity fraud, establishing an audit trail of transactions, and protecting data. financial datas. The move towards biometrics is also driven by the inability of traditional security measures such as PINs, passwords and tokens to offer effective protection, especially against the increasing sophistication of intruder attacks. The growing awareness among bank customers of the inadequacy of PINs and passwords to provide protection against sophisticated bank fraud and online threats is driving a strong demand for robust security solutions such as those involving biometrics. In addition, the steady increase in the number of password hacks in recent times reflects inadequate security associated with the use of passwords as a method of access. Driven by the growing need to offer protection against the growing cases of fraudulent transactions and identity theft as well as the ever-increasing scale of fraud, banks are choosing to invest in strong authentication measures.

As consumer preferences change and new payment methods are introduced, banks are forced to move towards the digital transformation of payment and card transactions. Advances in technology are also leading to an increase in the number of counterfeits and frauds, making the need for a solution that cannot be replicated is growing in importance in the banking and financial services industry. In the financial sector, the increase in fraudulent account access due to the increasing use of mobile and online banking services reinforces the importance of access and identity management; information security governance; and information security roadmap as important implemented security initiatives for financial organizations. However, the growing complexity of threats and the lack of adequate budgets challenge the effective implementation of such security programs.
