(The Hill, Charles R. Carroll - Opinion Contributor, Oct 2, 2017)
Charles R. Carroll, Senior Vice President of Identity Services, MorphoTrust USA, a subsidiary of IDEMIA, contributed opinion piece, Uber must get drivers' fingerprints to ensure safety, to The Hill. The op-ed highlights the importance and accuracy of fingerprint-based background checks for ride-sharing giants such as Uber and Lyft, when screening potential drivers and safeguarding the public’s well-being.
This piece is particularly relevant as it comes on the heels of Transport for London’s (TfL) recent announcement that it would not renew Uber’s operating license. TfL, which runs the day-to-day operation of the Capital's public transport network, cited Ubers’ “lack of corporate responsibility” as well as its approach to how it obtains background checks for its drivers.
MorphoTrust USA is a member of the International Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA) and Bob Eckel, President, North America, IDEMIA also serves on the IBIA Board of Directors.

On the heels of the President's recent signing of the Rapid DNA Act, the International Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA) released its latest policy paper, "The Emergence of Rapid DNA Technology," on Tuesday, September 12th.
“The Emergence of Rapid DNA Technology” provides an overview of the technology behind Rapid DNA, the value of this technology for swift determinations of identity in the field, and the potential impacts of the Rapid DNA Act. The paper also outlines the Rapid DNA capabilities of several companies, each of which brings specific technologies to the table. By providing a neutral look at the use cases, benefits, and limitations of Rapid DNA, IBIA hopes to create a measured, fact-based debate about this new technology.
