Do you know what a passthought is? We didn't either - until we recorded this podcast. To start off the new year with a bang, the Tech Buzzwords podcast from WhatIs.com tackles cognitive biometrics, a fast growing new field used in authentication in the finance industry and beyond. To learn more about 'cognometrics' Assistant Site Editor Alex Howard interviewed Patrick Audley, the CTO of bleeding-edge risk adaptive software provider Cogneto .

In this podcast, you will learn the answers to the following questions:

  • What are cognitive biometrics -- and how are they different from more familiar biometrics like fingerprints or iris scans?
  • What is the fast growing area of biometrics?
  • What is a cognometric?
  • What is risk adaptive authentication?
  • What is a passthought?
  • How are modern authentication methods in the digital realm similar to those used by the ancient Sumerians or Israeli security for El Al?
