To ensure that the U.S. remains on the cutting edge, on Wednesday, June 6, in Washington, D.C., his administration will convene a gathering of the nation's top minds and corporate leaders to discuss the major cyber security issues affecting the economy and United States' national security. Jim Demitrieus, Chief Executive Officer of EyeLock Inc., was hand-selected to participate in these discussions and share his insights. He will be among business leaders and senior Administration officials, including representatives from the White House Office, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Executive Office of the President (EOP).
Attendees and speakers will discuss strategies to create "Jobs of the Future" in cyber security.

"Our mission is to help top policy makers and cyber security decision makers understand the weaknesses of our current systems – smart cards, usernames and passwords, etc. – which continue to be abused and leave us exposed time and time again. The future belongs to biometrics; we cannot keep relying on these tried and failed methods.
