Meet our Speaker: Gillian Ormiston

Ms ORMISTON has held positions in both the private and government sectors over the last 28 years.  Her current post involves ensuring that passenger facilitation solutions involving biometrics (face, finger, iris) meet and anticipate future operational requirements.


Over the past 13 years since joining IDEMIA, she has been involved in a large number of border control and traveller processing projects involving biometrics and the integration of emerging technologies to address the issue of national security and passenger identification.

Before joining IDEMIA (formerly Safran Morpho), she worked for 6 years for the European Commission DG Justice, Freedom and Security Large Scale IT unit.

eTalk: What does a Digital Border look like? 

For years government authorities have discussed how they need to make their processes more efficient based on the use of biometric technology to process passengers.  Biometrics is the ultimate digital technology and by combining it with the latest digital ID technology, new opportunities are emerging for the whole approach to traveller security and identification, which goes beyond just airports. 

This presentation will look at how the combination of digital technology and a fresh look at processes create opportunities for a seamless and paperless movement of people through borders and reviews key lessons learned from early deployments around the world. 

Main goals of this speech:

  • Digital technology – what it offers and what is needed in your border infrastructure

  • A look at the latest processes incorporated into the digital Borders in 3 countries

  • What are the key ‘elements for deployment
