Security Document World - Day 2: Keynote Session
"Document digitalization: Mobile companions unlocking a brand new generation of secure eServices"
The smartphone revolution has impacted every aspect of our lives, and the secure identity industry is no exception.
In today’s relentless digitalization and 24/7 connectivity, the demands for citizens’ online identification and authentication has never been so high, as is the critical need for trusted digital identities.
Leveraging the convenience and power of smartphones, combined with the latest identification, authentication and biometric technologies, proof of identity is going mobile. The digitalization of ID documents has become the „new black.“ We see successful mobile identity initiatives spreading. The digital driving licences and travel credential are the latest in a growing list of ID innovations to make it onto the smartphone.
This session will present the latest trends and steps in the digitalization of ID documents with the goal of unifying identities across both the physical and the digital world. We will also tackle how governments, and those who address the needs for trusted digital identity, can seize opportunities, be in the best position to serve and support the digital transformation in their country, open the doors to next gen eServices, and unlock an array of new opportunities.
