A Roundup of Inspiring Keynotes on Day 1 at Identity Week Europe 2022

The first day of Identity Week Europe 2022 is nearly over but not without a roundup of fantastic highlights, from unmissable keynote presentations to the palpable buzz which filled the exhibition.

ID solution providers and enablers from a true cross-section of identity domains including physical and digital ID and biometrics gathered at London’s ExCeL, with the focus of further digitalisation on streamlining manual identification and counterbalancing common risks to identity security.

The range of use cases for digital and biometric ID solutions is vast and ever expanding in sectors such as travel, banking, Government, and law enforcement, co-existing for the foreseeable future with tested and trusted physical ID credentials.

Announcing speakers to the keynote stage, Identity Week CEO, Mark Lockie, gave an energised speech to open the conference and build excitement of solutions which will be demonstrated across the next two days.

The first presentation, delivered by Luca Pronzati, Chief Business Innovation Officer at MSc Cruises, launched into the new biometric technology the company plans to integrate into  2023 and 2024 to provide terminals-as-a-service for the customer’s travel journey.

Q: Have you started the implementation of the solution yet?

“We’re embracing the experience of 360° management”, he said. “We want to anticipate as much as possible for the launch at the beginning of 2023 or 2024” he continued.

Hannah Rutter, Deputy Director of Digital Identity at DCMS, also delivered an insightful keynote presentation on the department’s future and current policies to guide private sector innovation in identity security, to ensure trust is instilled in the consumer and businesses.

Finally, we heard from Diane Sabatino, Deputy Chief Executive Commissioner at the U.S. Customs and Border Protection who gave an insightful update on the matching facial biometric technology being integrated at US ports of entry.

In 2018, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection started actioning a touchless biometric experience for travellers which is vital to efficiencies in streamlining traveller experiences and allowing safe and secure travel to stay ahead of adversaries.

Don’t miss the second day jam-packed with more amazing speakers and unparalleled networking opportunities!

 

Europe Gold Sponsor Innovatrics Expands Remote Identity Verification Offering

Europe Gold Sponsor Innovatrics Expands Remote Identity Verification Offering

Identity Week Europe makes a comeback next week and will be the launchpad for Gold Sponsor, Innovatrics’ new identify verification offering, a comprehensive suite for remote identity verification and digital on-boarding.

The new DOT Trust Platform is installed with a complete set of tools and services for digital on-boarding clients, customers and citizens and is supplemented with biometric duplicate checks, allowing organisations to double check real identities using a decentralised method and reduce identity fraud by up to 90%.

During the onboarding process, DOT Trust Platform verifies the identity and motion of a user and checks their “uniqueness”. Using the two-phase process, the platform can recognise if the user is already enrolled on the database or added to a watchlist and alerts the customers to potential ID fraud.

Daniel Ferak, DOT Business Unit Director said many years of experience and expertise in large-scale biometric projects had contributed to the platform’s build and capability to give customers feedback and actionable recommendations for making the onboarding process secure, and at the same time, smooth and convenient for end users.

He commented: “The search for biometric duplicates has reduced the occurrence of ID fraud by over 90 percent compared to traditional customer acquisition in our test markets.”

The DOT Trust Platform combines Innovatrics’ industry-leading facial biometric technology with a powerful identity management system adapted from large-scale ABIS (Automated Biometric Identification System) for comprehensive remote identity verification, empowering organisations to:

  • Reduce onboarding costs by up to 90%
  • Lower onboarding time from hours to minutes
  • Increase fraud detection by up to 90%
  • Remove friction and increase conversion
  • Deliver a seamless onboarding experience
  • Ready to comply with legal requirements and regulations

A Gold Sponsor supporting Identity Week Europe next week, Innovatrics is a provider of multi-modal biometric solutions used in more than 70 countries, with its own algorithms ranking consistently among the fastest and most accurate in fingerprint and face recognition.

Innovatrics will showcase the DOT Trust Platform at the world’s largest and most important identity event, Identity Week Europe, taking place on 28 and 29 June at London’s ExCeL. Visit Innovatrics at booth no. 700: https://www.terrapinn.com/exhibition/identity-week/sponsors-and-exhibitors.stm
