FTT Identity will explore the latest initiatives, technologies and concepts driving the financial industry’s approach to Digital Identity. How can banks, governments and technology providers come together to create a framework for the future?
Identity: The missing piece of the FinTech puzzle?
businesses saw increased ID fraud in the past year

The Financial Services sector is the leading investor in identity
Today’s Identity systems are slowing innovation in FinTech
In an increasingly digital, experience-driven banking landscape, one of the biggest challenges facing financial institutions remains how to be certain of a customer’s identity.
As face-to-face identification declines, transactions grow in volume and complexity, and customers expect even more seamless, real-time services. Meanwhile, regulatory requirements become increasingly demanding and the risk of data breach or identity fraud continues to rise.
Many valuable solutions have emerged across the digital identity landscape, but ultimately our digital economy continues to rely on physical proof of identity, slowing innovation in FinTech. Without an ecosystem to link distinct, identity management systems together, consumers have to keep track of multiple credentials to identify themselves with different service providers.
Identity remains the missing piece of the FinTech puzzle.
Digital ID – what is it & what will it be?
Banks and governments need to develop a framework around digital identity. Which international standards and principles will foster trust, compatibility and interoperability, as we determine the path forward for ID applications in financial services?
Identity proofing in a remote world
FIs must be able to establish the identity of their customers – accurately, securely and seamlessly, while meeting evolving regulation. With a growing demand for remote services, will new solutions deliver on their promise to replace physical identity checks?
Banks & the identity ecosystem
Are banks uniquely placed to close the gap on identity? They perform KYC and AML functions in daily operations, have a regulated use of customer data and higher than average consumer trust. What role do FIs play in building a global standard for digital identity?
Fighting fraud with strong authentication
Identity systems are increasingly being attacked by fraudsters. Do new approaches promise improved detection and prevention of financial crime? Which solutions offer the strongest alternative to password-based systems – granting confidence in the security of identity data.
Open frameworks for progress
PSD2 not only ushered in Strong Customer Authentication, but the promise of Open Banking through APIs. By connecting identity data from multiple sources, Open Banking could deliver more reliable verification and improve customer experience. But how close is this goal to being realised?
A model for self-sovereign identity
Digital ID should enhance privacy and consent, granting users control over how their personal credentials are shared. Will financial services embrace a decentralised ID model? What about the role that blockchain will have to play in identity?
As a financial institution, how do you know that a customer is who they say they are online and not a fraudster? In this keynote, iProov Founder and CEO Andrew Bud discusses digital identity in its current state, plus how it could evolve in the future. Key challenges and threats will be presented, followed by emerging trends including how onboarding and authentication are merging and the future impact of verifiable credentials.
