Managing Identities in Corrections

Unfortunately, this can expose facilities and their staff to unnecessary risk—especially as they face crafty prisoners continually looking for ways to game the system. In this series, you’ll get the inside scoop on identity management and the role of biometrics in corrections from an industry veteran—and a few stories that may surprise you.
