Meet the Panelists of Our “Mind the Gap” Webinar

The gap between physical and digital identity has been widening significantly and the pandemic has accelerated the move to digital.  What has this meant for fraud and how will government and business address the growing trust gap?

In our upcoming webinar on Wednesday, February 24, we’ll be chatting with a panel of esteemed experts from the US and the UK on how to address these gaps and flip the script on fraudsters. Key talking points will include looking at today’s standards for government-issued identity documents, forgery trends and the impact of the lack of information sharing and cooperation between private corporations and law enforcement. We’ll also discuss the need for industry standards and how identity proofing technology can build trust.
