Biometric Scanning

Leading up to the Feast of Trumpets; International Red Cross sees benefits in biometrics use for humanitarian operations and enabling financial inclusivity for the world’s poor. ‘False Prophet will like this ALOT and ‘RECOMMEND’ its adoption!!!’

Revelation 13:16-17 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

5G + Biometric Facial/Hand Scanning + Digital/Cashless Transactions + Mark of Approval/Authorization = Tomorrow’s Economy (2020)

Biometric scanning used for migrant/border control, secure identity verification and approval, government benefits, domestic and international travel security, economic inclusion of everyone, buying/selling transactions and fund transfers, instantaneous speed of transaction and convenience, VAT/taxation collection, mobility, social credit score and ranking, population movement and tracking, monitoring political and religious ‘extremism’ (terrorists). ‘Mark, number or name’ for verification and approval.

Leading up to the Feast of Trumpets; International Red Cross sees benefits in biometrics use for humanitarian operations

Biometrics use in humanitarian contexts should always be accompanied by data protection impact assessments and other safeguards, The International Committee of the Red Cross says in a new handbook.

The 312-page second edition “Handbook on Data Protection in Humanitarian Action” dedicates one of its 16 chapters to biometrics, and another to digital identity.

The ICRC has previously suggested that biometrics are the greatest challenge to data controls in humanitarian efforts, and established a new policy for handling the sensitive data late in 2019. Other chapters cover specific technologies like big data, drones, and social media.

The handbook was launched during a 12-hour virtual event, Yale Daily News reports, with more than 1,000 people in attendance. The handbook’s authors include employees of humanitarian organizations, data protection authorities, privacy advocates and academics.

The handbook refers to the Resolution on Biometrics adopted by the International Conference of Privacy and Data Protection Commissioners in Montreux, Switzerland in 2005 as a recognition of the data protection implications of biometric data, particularly in passports, identity cards and travel documents. In humanitarian settings, biometrics can enable identification and dignity by confirming the identity of people with no other means of proving who they are. The promise of the technology, however, is not always realized in the field, according to the handbook.

Humanitarian organizations should be sensitive to ethical issues related to national identification systems in certain countries, aware of the possibility of being pressured to hand over biometric data to law enforcement or national security authorities, and take precautions to defend against hackers seeking to steal potentially valuable sensitive personal information.

The handbook identifies nine benefits of biometric technology that are possible, including accuracy, fraud and corruption reduction, increased credibility and efficiency, “putting individual identity and dignity at the heart of Humanitarian Action,” and enabling financial inclusion. Six risks of biometrics use are also pointed out, however, including the risk of false matches, inherent technical difficulties, cultural sensitivities, mission creep, and pressure from various parties to turn over data.

The application of basic data protection principles is discussed, including the legal basis for processing biometric data. Purpose limitation, data minimization, and data retention issues are also explored.

ICRC considers the rights of data subjects, and what constitutes acceptable conditions for sharing biometric data with third parties, such as for processing. International data sharing and the relationship between data controllers and data processors are among the possible complicating factors.

Data protection impact assessments (DPIAs) are noted as important tools that should be implemented whenever humanitarian organizations set out to process biometric information, according to the handbook.

A separate chapter on digital identity categorizes identity as functional, foundational, or conceptual, and sets out a path for humanitarian organizations to implement systems for authentication, identification and verification. Important questions to ask when considering whether to implement a digital identity system are provided, along with possible scenarios for the use of digital ID. This section also refers to biometrics several times, in reference to systems like Aadhaar, establishing digital identity as foundational, legal identity, and again, the relationship between data processors and controllers.

The ICRC also notes ID2020’s advocacy for individuals to control their own digital identities and personal data.

Make Your Decision for Christ NOW!!!!!!! Time is Up!!!!!!!

Jesus Christ’s Offer of Salvation:

The ABCs of Salvation through Jesus Christ (the Lamb)

A. Admit/Acknowledge/Accept that you are sinner. Ask God’s forgiveness and repent of your sins.

. . . “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23).

. . . “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” (Romans 3:10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” (1 John 1:8).

B. Believe Jesus is Lord. Believe that Jesus Christ is who He claimed to be; that He was both fully God and fully man and that we are saved through His death, burial, and resurrection. Put your trust in Him as your only hope of salvation. Become a son or daughter of God by receiving Christ.

. . . “That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. (John 3:15-17). For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13).

C. Call upon His name, Confess with your heart and with your lips that Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

. . . “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Romans 10:9-10).

. . . “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.” (John 1:8-10).

. . . “And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. (John 2:2).

. . . “In this was manifested the love of god toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world. Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.” (1 John 4:9, 14-15).

. . . “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” (Romans 5:8-10).

. . . “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23).

. . . “Jesus saith unto them, I am the way, the truth, and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6).

. . . “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth.” (Romans 1:16).

. . . “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts: 4:12).

. . . “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth for there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” (1 Timothy 2:4-6).

. . . “For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Thessalonians 5:9).

. . . “But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.” (John 1:12).
