NEC: Success at ID Week America, minding the trust gap

NEC: Success at ID Week America, minding the trust gap

Writing she felt ‘honour’ to deliver an opening keynote address at Identity Week America, Kathleen Kiernan in the NEC Today said she was delighted to spotlight digital ID within the federal and aviation sector. She urged thought-leaders to close the “trust gap” in delivering a product or service to the customer, from planning to execution.

The NEC deploys ground-breaking solutions for government use, including end-to-end systems for access control and security, next generation..

The NEC deploys ground-breaking solutions for government use, including end-to-end systems for access control and security, next generation identity verification, processing, advanced analytics, and anomaly detection.

The timeline of trust incorporates paper identification, digitalisation, and connectivity.  There is a legion of issues that relate to the need for quality identity experiences including homelessness, as Kathleen explained in her presentation, stepping away from often bland technical explanations around commercial use cases. She advocated that the NEC is creating digital representation for all by developing truly open systems and inclusion.

She echoes this sentiment in NEC Today stating that NEC’s vision of being “truly open and truly trusted” is one of the strengths that has consolidated the 123-year-old company.

In support of a fantastic event, she wrote: “Being with our peers at Identity Week was inspiring and energising. There were spirited discussions about Next Gen identity verification, which reinforces our mission at NEC NSS to apply scientific curiosity with the flexibility to rapidly prototype custom solutions. We look forward to next year’s event!”.

ID Week takeaways: achieving a federated patient data system in healthcare

ID Week takeaways: achieving a federated patient data system in healthcare

While a centralised digital ID ecosystem has existed for some time, healthcare thought-leaders attending identity Week America advocated for a federated patient data ecosystem.

The healthcare sector, where decades of patient data is stored, trails behind sectors like finance and travel that are miles ahead in their digital transformations.

Currently, £1 Billion is being funnelled into plans to achieve digital transformation in the NHS which has in the past lagged behind sectors like banking and finance and travel.

The drive from healthcare now is to accelerate digital innovation to communicate diagnoses quicker with more intelligent technology and trusted communication to the patient. This sentiment was voiced by Linda Van Horn, Founder and CEO of iShare Medical who delivered a keynote in which she explained how the platform facilitates the trusted exchange of healthcare information to patents and authorised professionals by using direct addresses and patient identifiers, instead of weak patient data such as a person’s name and date of birth.

iShare’s keynote presentation called for a better data security environment and federated digital ID ecosystem which would allow a shift to digital healthcare and unlock countless other benefits of ensuring efficiency, cutting operational costs, and open clear interaction between the patient and professionals.

Sharing the findings of the Bipartisan Policy Center study of Harris County Texas, she stressed that out of a total 3.4M patients in the state, 249,213 individuals had the same first and last name and 69,807 pairs shared the same names and date of birth, reducing the level of accurate data sharing.

Highlighting the system flaws further, she quoted that 2,488 patients were named Maria Garcia, making the point that generic patient identifiers do not differentiate similar medical records.

The standards that should be followed for sharing patient medical records include identity proofing, authentication of a trust credential to prove someone’s identity and authorisation for access to sensitive medical data, which follows the standard procedure when travelling on a plane.

With a record high number of registered NHS patients, and data indicating 6.6 million currently await treatment, now is the urgent time to be updating data platforms in the NHS to manage the challenges that the system faces since the pandemic by connecting vast amounts of data which is owned by different departments of the NHS.

On the government’s top agenda, in light of the NHS’ COVID-19 backlog, is to create a Federated Data Platform (FDP) which will coordinate isolated data from 42 Integrated Care Systems to improve health outcomes and make the way health information is communicated more transparent.

In September, the publication of a new data sharing framework built with better trust capabilities to let third parties analyse England’s health data set out five principles for best practice around settings, data, authorised access, research projects and outputs.

ID Week America: Keynotes get underway

ID Week America: Keynotes get underway

The keynotes are underway!

Administrator David P. Pekoske of the TSA gives the first inspiring address at Identity Week America 2022.

Founded just 60 days after the 9/11 attacks, the TSA aims to prevent attacks on the U.S. transportation and aviation systems.

Built into identity experiences is the need for touchless. David kicks-off a summary of the TSA’s mandate for securing the U.S. transportation system saying, “the gap between pre-pandemic passenger levels and today is ever-closing”.

Routinely, 2 million people pass through the TSA’s systems.

What are the TSA’s priorities?

Operationalise biometric systems
Global entry/exit
Using biometrics as an opt-in process to see the increased accuracy that biometrics presents and enhance the consumer experience.

Partnerships are key to the TSA’s success – with other agencies as they proceed with identity management.

Pekoske said: “We are not islands to ourselves”.

The TSA’s aim is to be an agile security agency that can adapt to the risk to safety, implementing 1-2-1 facial matching biometrics.

The TSA’s technology includes verification credential biometric technology which has multiple functions to connect flight information with passengers to reduce board pass fraud and identity verification.

The TSA is also testing biometric technology at Detroit and Atlanta airports which compares the passenger’s image with a gallery of pre-advanced identity data – called one-to-end identity verification.

“Our commitment to privacy is our true north”. The TSA has three objectives to optimise passenger experience, security, and the use of information and systems for protecting passengers.

The TSA is working on “One Stop Security” which will enable one-stop passenger information to be collected at any international airport and shared with U.S. border controls for a seamless experience entering the U.S.

Celebrus Offers Identity Solutions at Identity Week America

Celebrus Offers Identity Solutions at Identity Week America

D4t4 Solutions CEO and industry veteran Bill Bruno will take the stage at Identity Week America in Washington, D.C. on October 5, 2022.  Bill will discuss how existing fraud technologies are limited in what information they can reveal, leaving organisations to just manage fraud instead of preventing it.  

“Fraud is becoming increasingly more sophisticated by the day – and your technology needs to evolve to keep up. It must be truly real-time and the data should be as comprehensive and complete as possible,” said Bill Bruno, CEO of D4t4 Solutions. “Ultimately, your technology must solve for digital identity in a meaningful way, or your evidence will not matter.” 

In addition to the big stage, Bill will lead a roundtable discussion on creating robust identity graphs with comprehensive behavioural biometrics.  Vice President of Marketing Tiffany Staples will be on the expo floor discussing how to build robust identity graphs with limited authenticated data. 

By visiting Celebrus at the conference you can learn how Celebrus Customer Data Platform (CDP) and Celebrus Fraud Data Platform (FDP) leverage advanced data capture and contextualisation capabilities to solve identity challenges relating to customer experience and fraud. Recent innovations from Celebrus to enhance its identity offerings will take center stage. Recent identity-related innovations from Celebrus such as Celebrus Cross-Domain Continuance, and mouse paths will take center stage.   

Research your meeting on October 4th & 5th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, booth #209. 

ID Week America: Healthcare presentations

ID Week America: Healthcare presentations

The countdown to Identity Week America is on!

With hundreds of identity solutions on showcase, expert presentations and panel sessions and easy networking opportunities across the two days, the event is the place to be to assess one of the most primitive and advancing industries.

Here’s a snapshot of sessions around identity and IAM for the healthcare sector. From start-ups in their formative years of development to the biggest vendors and organisations, the conference programme supports all viewpoints in nurturing the next generation of talent in identity, in addition to facilitating more commercial and public sector use cases of digital and physical ID across banking, travel healthcare and lots more industries!

Discover the next unicorn Identity Week America has to offer or sit in on carefully planned sessions, presentations and roundtable discussions with other thought-leaders – all for free.

We’re delighted to welcome Linda Van Horn, who is President & Chief Executive Officer at iShare Medical, to deliver a keynote presentation on the present and future mission to secure access and sharing of medical data with digital identity verification. It’s a use study that continues to be tested with digital ID technologies to transform the way patients can openly access their personal medical records whilst tightly retaining confidentiality over the most sensitive personal information.

On Day 1, Ryan Howells, Principal at Leavitt Partners, will also give his insight into converging trust, privacy and convenience for patients to enable healthcare to adopt a centralised system of digital identity as many other industries have.

Ryan Howells

Unlike some sectors which have diverse ecosystems of product vendors and numerous applications, healthcare with predominantly two major divisions, the NHS or private healthcare, requires a federated digital identity system to protect millions of people’s personal medical data.

You can hear a panel discussion on “Digital identity federation in healthcare” at 11:30 on 4th October involving healthcare professionals across these domains who will discuss the challenge of creating one future-proof identity ecosystem in healthcare.

ID Week America: Transforming travel and physical identity sessions

ID Week America: Transforming travel and physical identity sessions

One of the most primitive industries, identity is also advancing with new technology to verify and authenticate, enhancing many other sectors.

Threats to our personal, national and global security have soared while consumer satisfaction is ever determining whether businesses succeed or fail in a modern world.

At its core, Identity Week America is a multi-dimensional event that creates and manifests new applications of physical and digital identity across four main sectors that are advancing at a rapid rate.

One of the key sectors that the event targets and allies with in promoting new identity solutions and strategies is the Travel and Aviation industry.

We have amassed an incredible line-up of top representatives from the travel industry, Government counter-terrorism bodies and national independent organisations.

They include: Dallas Fort Worth International Airport, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, US Customs and Border Protection, the Transportation Security Administration and Richard Clarke, Former National Coordinator for U.S. Counter-terrorism, all of whom will make their pledges to the future of identity at the number #1 meeting place of the year – Identity Week America!

Attend our FREE Expo to mingle with these individuals and thousands more!

Through sessions, keynote presentations, roundtables and fundamental networking, the event will dissect how advanced facial recognition and digital ID testing is across all industry case studies.

Our inspiring sessions will discover what most excites speakers about biometrics for the aviation and travel industry and how we can successfully transform travel with digital identity, adopting approaches to innovation for security effectiveness and the passenger experience.

Day 1 Keynote, 9:00: Hear from newly confirmed TSA Administrator David Pekoske how innovative identity management solutions can improve security and enhance the passenger experience.

 

David Pekoske, Administrator, Transportation Security Administration 

In Track 2 on 4th October, Tony Poole, President of the Document Security Alliance will discuss the problem of counterfeiting with security documents.

New Report Reveals Fraud Management Is Vital to the Business Strategy of Most Organisations

New Report Reveals Fraud Management Is Vital to the Business Strategy of Most Organisations

For the vast majority of organisations (92%), fraud management is either extremely important or somewhat important to their overall business strategy, according to a new study conducted by Gatepoint Research and sponsored by leading digital identity firm Telesign.

The report, which explores the fraud management strategies of business executives and decision makers across corporate America, also found that a majority of respondents (53%) admit their organisation has gaps in their ability to mitigate fraud, rating themselves as somewhat to very ineffective.

“Fraud management is vitally important because it increases confidence in your organisation,” said Joe Burton, CEO of Telesign. “With so much of our daily lives conducted online, fraud prevention is now a critical component for business success. People trust the platforms they use to be safe, and they blame the brand if that trust is violated.”

Fraud continues to plague organisations

When asked what fraud schemes or tactics were of top concern to their business this year, 50% of respondents cited account takeover, followed by phishing at 45%, new account fraud at 38%, and fake users at 21%.

The report also found that the battle against fraud is unrelenting. Nearly two-thirds of respondents (65%) revealed that the number of fraud attempts at their organisations either stayed the same or increased by 25% or more over the last year.

Surprisingly, even in the face of security gaps and rising fraud attempts, a high number of those surveyed (43%) have not added to their fraud prevention budget, while just 29% of respondents increased their fraud prevention budget this year.

Challenges remain when fighting fraud

Fraud is now costing businesses and individuals across the world more than $5 trillion annually. Bad actors are getting more and more sophisticated, so putting in measures to stop fraudsters and mitigate attacks is crucial.

When it comes to fighting fraud and fraud prevention, multi-factor authentication has had the most significant impact by far, with 73% of respondents citing it as their top preventive technology. Also effective, say 52%, are AI and machine learning technologies, followed by digital identity verification at 40%.

Organisations feel as though they are fighting an uphill battle when minimising fraud. Over 60% of the respondents cited lack of customer awareness as their biggest challenge against fraud. This was followed by quickly evolving fraud tactics at 56% and the fact that fraudsters have greater access to customer information on the internet, cited by 40% of respondents.
