Each human possesses a couple of almost infallible type of id. referred to as biometrics, examples comprise fingerprints, iris and retinal scans, hand geometry, and different measures of actual features and private characteristics. Advances in desktops and comparable applied sciences have made this a hugely computerized approach by which reputation happens virtually at once. With problem approximately its details coverage structures and actual entry regulate expanding, the military has undertaken an overview of the way it may possibly use biometrics to enhance protection, potency, and comfort.

Protection against function creep will help ensure that the data are not used for tracking unless that is a specifically stated goal. OTHER MILITARY POLICIES ADDRESS SPECIFIC SOCIOCULTURAL CONCERNS Beyond the issues raised by the Privacy Act, the Army can rely on other military policies and procedures to further address religious concerns. Precedents found in the case law address intrusiveness concerns.
For example, Congress has mandated the establishment of a federal “Parent Locator Service” and requires federal agencies to comply with requests from the Secretary of Health and Human Services for addresses and places of employment of absent parents. 12 As noted above, the Privacy Act also requires the federal agency to put in place appropriate safeguards to protect information in its databases. 13 Both the agency and the employee responsible for any breach can be found legally liable for a Privacy Act violation, including civil liability for the agency and criminal liability for the individual.
Given these concerns, it is critical for the Army to take additional steps to improve perceptions of its biometrics program. Such an approach includes four steps. • Thoroughly explain why biometrics are the best solution to a particular problem. • Structure a program and select technologies to minimize effects on privacy. • Educate the Army community and the public about the purpose and structure of the Army’s program. ______________ 20Id.
