Laura Camplisson, Future Identity Portfolio Lead
09:05 - 09:50 - Is Digital ID set for mainstream adoption?
As momentum behind digital ID wallets continues to grow, is digital identity about to hit the mainstream? Wallets could allow users to securely store smart, reusable credentials, for convenient access to services. Which initiatives are underway to drive interoperability at a national and international level? What considerations must be made to ensure reusable credentials work for relying parties, whilst protecting personal data? Will accessibility drive widespread adoption?

09:50 - 10:30 - Inclusion in action: Building identity systems for everyone
Science fiction author William Gibson famously said that the future is already here, it’s just not very evenly distributed. If digital identity systems are to work for everyone, there are a wide range of usability and accessibility needs that must be accounted for. What practical steps can organisations take to address exclusion at each stage of product development? How do we mitigate bias, both conscious and unconscious, from identity solutions?

10:30 - 11:00 - Morning coffee break
It’s coffee o’clock! Grab some refreshments from our expo floor before the stage resumes.
11:00 - 11:40 - Is digital identity proofing the key to financial crime prevention?
As the saying goes, ‘start as you mean to go on.’ Verifying the identity of new customers has become a critical step in any organisation’s financial crime strategy. Once a fraudster has created an account with a synthetic identity, the door to re-authentication is left wide open. How can businesses leverage new technologies to strengthen the onboarding process against evolving threats, thwarting bots and fraudsters before damage is done?

11:40 - 12:00 - Optimising end-to-end customer journeys for security and convenience
As quickly as businesses have embraced digital to engage with their customers, bad actors have used credential stuffing, account takeover, and other types of attack to take advantage. Keeping pace with an evolving threat landscape requires innovative approaches to optimising both security and convenience. But how do businesses avoid creating internal friction and slowing innovation through multiple integrations? Can a drag-and-drop approach to identity bring together all the tools businesses need to rapidly build, test and optimize customer journeys?
Máté Barany, Enterprise Account Executive, Ping Identity
12:00 - 12:40 - Policy and regulation: The next chapter
Technology alone will not solve digital identity. The resulting ecosystem will be shaped by the standards, regulations and policies governing identity systems. How can government and industry collaborate to drive trust and interoperability? What impact will data privacy, AML and KYC regulations have? What rights do individuals have to assert, alter and control their identity and how will this change as we determine a path forward for digital ID?
- Francisco Martins, Senior Executive, Financial Services & Crypto, IDnow
- Paul Munson, Head of Financial Crime, Shares

13:50 - 14:30 - Protecting businesses and customers online with stronger authentication
The percentage of transactions carried out and services accessed online, has skyrocketed in recent years. At the same time, bad actors continue to find new methods of attack. How can online retailers, consumer facing platforms and payment processors evolve their approaches to customer identity? How can automation and new authentication measures be leveraged to combat fraud and meet regulations, while providing seamless omnichannel experiences throughout the customer journey?

14:30 - 14:50 - Burying the password with multimodal biometric authentication
The future of identity is always evolving. The time to move beyond passwords with automated, multi-modal biometric authentication, is now. Passwords cost money, both in terms of customer abandonment (yes, people hate password reset cycles!) and the human overheads required to check identity at points of high-risk customer action. In the last 10 years, fintechs have honed, polished and refined the customer onboarding journey. In this session, Mitek will examine how to refresh customer authentication journeys.
Travis Joseph, Client Manager, Mitek Systems
14:50 - 15:30 - Powering the future of work with digital identity
The future of employment and hiring is a fascinating emerging use case for digital identity. Can digital ID help to streamline right to work checks and secure businesses and employees against fraud? How can innovative identity solutions support a seamless employee onboarding journey from prospective talent, through to new hire? How will digital employee credentials be leveraged for authentication and access use cases, throughout the employee journey.

16:00 - 16:40 - Identity & safety in a connected online world
Social media sites and subscription services have revolutionised how we interact with companies and individuals online, providing a platform for e-commerce, entertainment, and instant connection. As the dangers of fraud, identity theft, trolling and grooming intensify, should more be done to verify the real identities and ages of online users? How do we govern data privacy, security, and liability in a limitless online world?

As the metaverse and web 3.0 pick-up pace, a new vision of the internet is emerging. We could soon find ourselves consuming data and experiencing online spaces very differently. How will users trust the identities of virtual personas they interact with? How will NFTs and digital assets be protected against fraud? Does creating an environment where users can interact safely, securely and privately, mean building the future internet on digital identity?
