Jonas Andersson

Vice President of Business Development – Precise Biometrics

Speaks at ID WORLD on Secure Identification

Mr. Andersson comes with vast experience from the smart card industry. Among his positions in the smart card area are New Business Development Manager and later Business Segment Director at Schlumberger Cards (today Gemalto).

Since 2002, Mr. Andersson has headed Precise Biometrics’ Match-on-Card initiatives for National ID Card programs and strategic partnerships with the major smart card companies and system integrators worldwide.

Mr. Andersson comes with personal experience of working with Match-on-Card programs on all continents of the world. Among the accomplishments are the wins of Thailand National ID Card, the world’s largest Match-on-Card-based smart ID card program, as well as the ID cards of Qatar, Bahrain, Portugal and Venezuela.

Precise Biometrics is a Eurosmart and GlobalPlatform member where Mr. Andersson is actively contributing to the association’s work in biometrics and Match-on-Card. Mr. Andersson is a regular speaker at industry events such as World eID, Smart Mobility, Biometrics, ID World, and for several years at Cartes.

The background and experience from Jonas Andersson offers a system overview not only of biometrics and Match-on-Card but also its application and usage in smart card-based systems, ranging from national ID, bank and payment systems to mobile phones.

“Health cards – a useful application for match-on-card biometrics”

Fraud reductions and the security of the healthcare takers are major concerns for the healthcare industry all over the world.

By tying a patient to a personal health card with fingerprint recognition and the practitioner to delivering a service, the risk of phantom billing, up-coding, card sharing and ID errors and theft is reduced.

Matching and storing fingerprints on a smart card with fingerprint recognition does not only reduce these risks, it also protects the privacy of the cardholder. Even though the smart card is a secure token and provides a unique identifier for medical records, billing, etc, it does not in itself provide any security of identification of the patient. It does not guarantee the presence of the rightful care taker. A number of experiences from around the world prove this. The only means of securing the non-transfer of access rights, especially in an environment where there is no downside to sharing the token, is biometric verification. The only way of achieving the privacy absolutely required in healthcare is through performing this verification. Thus the card holder’s biometric data is stored and processed only inside the secure token, the health card, which is and remains in his possession.

The presentation will cover advantages in large scale rollouts in general and healthcare in particular. It will give a practical understanding how the technology affects daily work in regards to reduced administration, less risk in patient identity errors, and cost savings. Examples will be given from large scale, real life use cases. Such examples include banking, security, and large scale ID applications with millions of users.
