digital identity event OCR Labs

For this episode of Future Identity Now, we were joined by Russ Cohn, General Manager of International at OCR Labs, a fully automated remote identity verification and fraud detection platform.

We chatted about the increasing need for remote identity, exacerbated by COVID which impacted those businesses reliant on face-to-face customer verification. Russ emphasised the pressing threat of identity fraud, with businesses across various sectors losing billions of dollars every year to bad actors.

Russ explained that in future businesses will need to embrace identity solutions which are unreliant on humans, in order to feel fully secure and re-allocate their teams onto high priority cases.  He also shared his view that the future of identity will be embedded into the online customer journey, in order to meet customer expectations and regulatory requirements.
