Celebrating women in identity

Celebrating women in identity

On this International Women’s Day, we want to take the chance to highlight and celebrate female identity thought leaders within the ecosystem that have always driven and continue to drive successful use cases and bring solutions to the forefront in a largely dominant male field.

Gender discussion is so important to unlocking the full power of workforces and sparking innovation, but it is also a basic right for every woman to work in a fair and supportive working environment with equal pay and opportunity. Two sides of the discussion lie in addressing gender bias and poorer representation of women in the identity industry, and eliminating technological bias.

The identity industry is constantly making strides towards stamping out gender imbalances within the identity industry and this includes levels of inherent bias in technologies. A sign of change in the ecosystem, most credible solution providers are now attaining top NIST rankings for accuracy in tech that proves mitigation of bias between the genders and different demographic groups.

The industry’s awareness and attention to bias is a prime example of why identity is one of the most diversifying sectors which not only aims to promote fair representation and treatment in the professional working environment, but also ensures that the need to identify and scrutinise everyone as a potential threat is fair, universal and not discriminatory based on race, gender or other factors.

It is CEOs and founders that are making gender diversity a priority to address within their workforces, changing the landscape of the industry and faces that attend Identity Week. The term ‘quota’ is counterproductive to our objectives for true equality; the natural tide change in the industry supporting female talent in identity is enabling a seamless process of ensuring everyone who is part of the identity ecosystem is in the same room at Identity Week Europe, Asia and America.

Identity Week sessions focus on gender based issues, including barriers to women working and obtaining leadership roles, which has an impact on preventing technical progress of technologies and identity-related use cases.

Identity Week Europe has an impressive lineup of female speakers. They include:

Panel announcement: age assurance against online harms

Panel announcement: age assurance against online harms


Our Age Assurance track at Identity Week Europe 2023 is populating nicely full of specialists in tackling online harms with regulation, certification, age verification technologies and the media.

Ofcom, ACCS, Consult Hyperion and AVPA follow a dynamite speech from OnlyFans about the importance of age verification in our online spaces and how identity can be used to ensure safety, security, and privacy. The first edition of Identity Week Europe in Amsterdam will noticeably move the debate among the identity ecosystem on from theories and strategies, to actual deployment of biometric assurance technologies to keep children safe online and establish accurate identities.

With four months to go until Identity Week, IdentityWeek.net secured an exclusive opportunity to interview Tony Allen, Chief Executive of the Age Check Certification Services who is participating in two panel sessions on countering ‘Online Harms with Age Assurance’, as well as ‘Utilising Digital ID in Finance’.

The questions we proposed to him included:

  1. What standards govern age verification/biometric technologies for use, and what improvements need to be made to the certification process/standards?
  2. Are we seeing demand rising for identity/age verification technologies to protect children from harm?
  3. How important is interoperability between key parties these systems and relationships between vendors, social media networks, adult sites or advertising sites to ensure robust age restrictions are maintained online or offline?
  4. Who is responsible for trust – solution providers, certification bodies, standards/ frameworks/ laws governing what technologies make it to the marketplace, or a combination?
  5. What excites you about speaking at Identity Week Europe in June? What topics will be high on the agenda?

A fascinating discussion that preempts important stakeholder talks to be held at the event around physical deployment and proactivity to implement digital trust and privacy frameworks.  He makes asserted statements about the need for more frameworks and certification standards governing vendor solutions that exist but do not satisfy the foundations to continue real applications of biometric and age assurance technology.

Of course, he says, we are seeing more risk online, especially for children, which should warrant action and steer use cases.

The responsibility for trust is squarely on the solution provider that needs to attain certification and adhere to the frameworks that organisations like the ACCS build upon.

Ajay Amlani, SVP Americas, iProov

Ajay Amlani, SVP Americas, iProov

iProov, a leader of Genuine Presence Assurance technology, were exhibiting and Gold Sponsors at Identity Week America, in October.

Between taking to lively sessions and manning their busy stand, SVP Americas, Ajay Amlani had time to share their recent successful applications in this interview with Evie Kim Sing, Editor of IdentityWeek.net.

The last couple of decades have marked successes for iProov, namely their involvement in the US visitor program with the US Department of Homeland Security in 2003. Excited eyes were starting to take notice of biometrics and the myriad of benefits which this profiling technology could provide to businesses, personal security and more.

iProov were greeted in the US market with biometric solutions that recognised genuine users as well as bad actors without friction.

“The evolution of biometrics from a physical layout to a digital layout to allow remote involvement and application…has been a tremendous achievement for the industry itself”.

Genuine Presence Assurance ensures any anomalous user has a genuine identity and is authenticating in real time.

2023: Year of Europe’s single digital ID wallet, pipeline ID solutions and problems

2023: Year of Europe’s single digital ID wallet, pipeline ID solutions and problems

The new year, 2023, has officially begun, so what’s in the pipeline for our partners in identity?

The much-talked-about arrival of a single European ID wallet, to store all modern digital credentials, promises to one of the greatest deployments in 2023. The wallet will be launched in September with member states being required to make it accessible to every EU citizen who wants one.

The benefits will be widely felt by enterprises, citizens, governments, unifying key digital credentials and common forms of ID across members states. A recognised e-ID has still not been adopted by all EU states to eliminate bad actors during authentication, despite formal trust frameworks – namely the eIDAS Regulation – being enacted in 2014. Pre-existing

eIDAS, summarised in the words of Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, should “secure European e-Identity” so any citizen can travel or make a transaction “anywhere in Europe…a technology where we can control ourselves what data and how data is used.”

With multi-facets for storing digital credentials, the wallet be underpinned by interoperability with different service functions, including the exchange of health records, travel documents, and electronic ID for public and private use.

Forbes’ predictions for 2023 mount pressure on global as well as region-specific development and adoption of verifiable digital identities that block out fraud and enable the user more autonomy over their personal data.

HMRC looks set to migrate to the government’s One Login digital identity service, guiding users to secure authentication when accessing their services.

iProov predicts that 2023 will be another year of seismic innovation combating new problems.

  1. Biometric devices will overshadow password usage for two-factor authentication
  2. Meanwhile the threatening levels of synthetic identity fraud will still pressure vendor solutions and break records
  3.  Travel disruption 3 years on from the start of the pandemic will be curbed by enabling and enforcing remote ID checks
  4.  Liveness checks will become mandatory for online identity verification in financial services
  5. The Metaverse giving way to an unprecedented wave of identity theft and cybercrime
  6. More trust frameworks and privacy focused government digital identity schemes
  7. Websites and enterprises will adopt identity verification as a defensive tool

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 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!”.
