There is a need for possibility and application of a new IT hardware and software in case of catastrophes for better intervention. In our opinion these new IT tools are able to make faster and more efficient disaster management in practice. Better to say, the registration of people can became faster compared to the old (e.g. paper-based) systems. A cooperating partner of official disaster management developed a new biometric identification system which can do it. On one hand, it serves security; on the other hand this application raises privacy issues. We can see a conflict between privacy (rights) and security. Where is the balance between them?

I would like to analyse this question, and solve this problem in my presentation.
