Introduction about Security case
Citibank Singapore rolled out a new way for credit card holders to make payments using their finger prints. The purchase amount registers to the corresponding Citibank account. The biometric payment system works only for Citibank Platinum card holders and is offered in a few local outlets including restaurants, clubs, and cinemas. Two prominent retailers in the area, TJX Companies and Stop & Shop, wrestle with the aftermath of significant breaches that have exposed some of their customers to fraud.
In information technology, biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyze human body characteristics, such as DNA, fingerprints, eye retinas and irises, for authentication purposes.
How would a biometric payment system help protect the cafe and its customers?
Biometric system such as fingerprints, are more secure than other means of authentication, including PIN numbers, or signatures. People can forge signatures, passwords and PIN numbers can be easily be found out and used by others. But, fingerprints and other physical means of security are difficult to forge.
The biometric payment system would protect the cafe by having to pay fee by those who commit fraud and make customers feel that their identity and other personal information is protected. It makes customers feel safe while in cafe, since their personal information is stored in cafe computers . Also it would hopefully mean less cash on hand at all times. It would increase cash flow, and decrease the amount of petty cash on hand.
