Aaron Painter, CEO, Nametag: The benefits of using ‘Sign in with ID’ over password authentication

Aaron Painter is CEO at Nametag who participated in Identity Week America in October.

It was great catching up with him between his sessions to learn where Nametag fits in the identity ecosystem and quiz him on the secure benefits of using ‘Sign in with ID’ over password authentication.

It was fascinating to hear Aaron’s perspective on what excites him about the future of biometric technology and how it will be immersed in our daily lives in years to come.

 

In this short conversation, he describes the most exciting applications he’s been leading with Nametag and how the demands from enterprises and end-users are changing in terms of security, convenience, trust and privacy.

Diane Sabatino’s address at Identity Week Europe in June, and again in October in Washington. D.C., drew crowds, inspired start-ups and most importantly, sparked conversations around how the travel industry can secure identity trust to improve safety and the passenger experience.

With experience spanning both Asian and European secure identity markets, Ravi Purohit, Associate Director at Rakuten will be speaking at Identity Week Asia 2022, taking part in a panel discussion which focuses on Asia’s secure online payments ecosystem through robust ID technology.

At Identity Week Europe, back in June, Ravi predicted a passwordless future for hardware, helping to eliminate the risk of user data being exploited with weak password protection. He elaborated saying that while password systems are easily implemented, they are prone to security threats and can be easily guessed.

iProov: Platinum Sponsor at Identity Week Asia 2022

iProov will be making a second appearance after Identity Week Europe in June as Platinum Sponsor at the Asia conference this September, where identity enablers from across the APAC region will gather for an unmissable 2 days of networking and building connections in the quest for seamless security.

Back in June, iProov played a prominent role in setting out future authentication and onboarding technology harnessing biometrics. iProov’s CEO, Andrew Bud gave an energised keynote speech followed by a highly complimentary interview in which he stressed that Identity Week Europe enabled a fruitful forum for networking between industry stakeholders.

Since its inception in 2011, iProov has sought to strengthen awareness and urgency around the opportunities of establishing Genuine Presence Assurance to counter security risks.

Andrew alludes to a “watershed” moment in the deployment of biometrics when everyone from consumers, financial institutions and enterprises became interested in protecting security concerns over identity theft and fraud, supported by the advances in technology.

The conference at the ExCeL, London reflected this shift in industry-wide attitudes towards “authentically verifying” users in “untrusted contexts with untrusted networks and software”.

As a result, hundreds of identity experts turned out for such a unifying event, to showcase their solutions and forge new business deals around digital ID and biometric deployment.

First keynote speaker announced for Identity Week America

First keynote speaker announced for Identity Week America

Diane Sabatino of The U.S. Customs and Border Protection has today been announced as the first keynote speaker at Identity Week America taking place in October, following her address at the London event last week.

Opening Day 1 of Identity Week Europe, Diane spoke about beginning to fulfil the “touchless experience” mandate set out in 2002 to introduce a biometric traveller verification service across ports of entry in the U.S.

The new border control system is a cloud-based facial biometric matching service which compares a live photo of the traveller to datasets of photographs collected from previous encounters or advanced on-boarding. Holdings are populated with advanced information from the traveller prior to or on arrival at airports.

To date, Diane quoted that 179 million travellers have been processed through U.S. airports using this biometric facial technology, allowing U.S. Customs and Border Protection to stop 153,000 overstayers and identify 15,000 imposters that present a security risk to international travel passing through the U.S.

Implemented across all border points, the biometric traveller verification service is demonstrating headway in how U.S. border protection agencies tackle illegitimate travel across the United States. The upcoming event in October promises to elaborate on further border security measures being enacted by The U.S. Border Control and Protection when regional stakeholders meet in Washington D.C.

Identity Week America returns from 4-5 October 2022, with the mission to accelerate the move towards a safe and secure world where trusted identity solutions enable governments, border agencies and commercial organisations to authenticate genuine human identities in real-time.
