Lead Analyst for Emerging Technologies, Spitzberg Partners
The problem of identity encompasses a variety of the fundamental challenges in banking: authentication and fraud prevention, anti-money-laundering and know-your-customer compliance, client onboarding, data privacy, cybersecurity, and even financial inclusion. This workshop will explore the leading edge of technologies aimed at solving these interconnected challenges in a holistic way that reduces the amount of sensitive information passed around and gives consumers greater control over their data. Special attention will be given to the opportunities for banks to serve as trusted identity providers.
