Biometric access control systems will help reduce security risks in South African universities

Leave a Comment

Biometric access control systems could help improve security across South African universities, where protest action, violence and arson have posed risks to students’ safety and university property in recent months, according to a news release.

On campuses around the country, protest action has caused extensive damage to a number of institutions. Minister of Higher Education and Training Dr Blade Nzimande said recently that 2015/16 protest action had cost universities at least R300 million in damage to property.

“Managing access effectively for the vast number of students is challenging, and the only way to ensure that the correct person enters the campus is via biometrics, because biometrics can’t be shared, lost or forgotten,” experts have argued.
