Security expert responds to BBC fooling HSBC voice recognition security system
Monday, 22 May 2017
Lead Security Evangelist at Positive Technologies, Alex Mathews said:  “Biometrics were introduced to try and overcome the issue of PINs or passwords that hackers were able to circumvent with alarming regularity.

In fact, more first-time buyers bought a home in 2016 than in any year since 2007.
