Expert Panel

Planet Biometrics is proud to have appointed a world-leading Expert Advisory Panel to help underpin this site by providing thought-leadership, content and, when relevant, advice, to ensure Planet Biometrics is recognised as a premier source of authoritative news and information.

Members of our Expert Advisory Panel will provide regular commentary informing readers about what is happening in their area of expertise, what is coming up, what is important. They will assist in the formation of In Focus portals. They will also, where appropriate, offer expert opinion on major news items.

The Planet Biometrics Expert Advisory Panel is a voluntary endeavour, but will undoubtedly contribute towards advancing understanding within both the end-user sector and the industry itself.
