Government deploys biometric access control systems at all public buildings
South Korea’s government has decided to step up the level of security around its public buildings and will deploy new access control systems based on facial recognition at all of its size, a news source can reveal.
The public sector buildings currently see about 32,000 employees and 6,000 visitors on a daily basis, and use a security system based on ID cards. However, earlier this year, an individual managed to gain entry to one government building five times over the course of February and March after stealing multiple ID cards, aiming to alter the results of his civil service exam.
This high-profile case prompted the security upgrade, suggesting that government officials may already have been considering biometric access control prior to the breach. Plus, South Korean government’s implementation of advanced physical access control is very much in keeping with its increasingly sophisticated approach to digital security in other areas.
