9/11 Commission Report Has Technology Implications
The technical discussion of the report covers biometric identification systems -- how to standadarize them, and how to use them more effectively. The report also discusses profiling and command-and-control systems. However, this is likely stratching the surface of the ways in which technology can be used to combat terrorists. Lots of process work needs to happen as well before anything can be deployed effectively. And to its credit, the report also noted privacy concerns, and the need to hold authorities accountable for the way in which surveillance technology is used.
Expect to hear more discussion of security technology as Congress begins responding to the 9/11 Commission Report.
