From Smart Citizenry Cards to Biometric Welfare Grant

These government security innovations range from smart ID cards to biometric border devices that are equipped with fingerprint scanners and face recognition software. In addition to worrying about their personal safety, today's tech-obsessed generation is likely to be victim to identity theft or fraud. This is often a result of their frequent Internet use and willingness to share personal data on social media platforms.

In addition to smart citizenry cards -- Singapore's Gemalto Government ID Program and CryptID's digital platform offer multiple levels of protection -- other standouts include senior wayfinding devices like those launched by the Chinese government. The sensors can be worn by seniors and are equipped with GPS technology that ensures the elderly aren't lost during urban outings.

Furthermore, Trinidad & Tobago's biometric welfare grants prevent fraud and false claims while VerifyMe's biometric platforms lets government institutions heighten security in the workplace without needing to use a password-protected system.
