ABSTRACT
Although information technology's positive impacts on businesses and individuals are substantial, cybercrime continues to represent one of the greatest threats in the digital world. Advances in biometric technology's capabilities hold promise for solving this problem by offering users greater protection, but more legislative and social-policy work is needed to help realize the technology's full potential. In the near term, however, organizations can begin by incorporating users' security and privacy concerns into their biometric policies in terms of data collection, storage, access, and use.
