Website | @TacticalInfoSys | Attendee Directory Profile

Mary Haskett is a co-founder and President of Tactical Information Systems (TIS), a company developing a unique approach to biometric matching as an Internet cloud-based service, allowing the use of this technology in a wide variety of new consumer applications. She drives the business strategy and marketing direction, as well as manages the day-to-day operations of the business. Tactical Information Systems is her third venture.

In 1998, Ms. Haskett founded HCI Training, Inc., an Austin, Texas-based training development company she ran profitably until it was acquired by Ideal Innovations, Inc. in 2007. HCI Training was also bootstrapped and growth was funded through revenue.

After the acquisition by Ideal Innovations in 2007, Ms. Haskett was asked to stay on as the Vice President of Software and Training for I-3 to lead system integration teams responsible for providing comprehensive biometric solutions to both U.S. and foreign governments. She was responsible for managing the first satellite office of I-3, growing from 4 people to 20 people with a project budget of $15M. As part of this effort, she led a program to integrate Iraqi refugees into the company, as well as assist their assimilation into US culture. Her tenure with I-3 resulted in exposure to the cultures and related needs of a variety of clients, including customers and end-users in Iraq, Kurdistan and Afghanistan. She has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan on a number of occasions, and was responsible for deploying the National Afghanistan biometric database system.

This session will examine the state of the art of surveillance technologies, defeat mechanisms, and implications for privacy. Read more.
