"Three Challenges of Establishing Identity in the Digital Economy"
The rise in both the frequency and sophistication of fraud attempts has increased the importance of identity verification. With thousands of identity documents being used globally, and with no common standards in place, establishing and verifying identities has become a difficult and time-consuming process. Additionally, the rise of digital and mobile usage has increased the difficulty in verifying identity and matching the ID to the person holding the device.
This session will explore three challenges of verifying identities today and what institutions can employ to thwart bad actors in the digital economy where identity is the new currency:
• Global factors including ID templates updates and forensics
• Device and method challenges focused on mobile
• Linking a person to an ID to establish genuine presence
