5.3.   IIF Annual Membership Meeting (Don/Nat)


Session Description:

In the accelerated move to a digitalized world, new technology is changing how people are identified and what we know about them, in an environment where trust has to be built differently from physical interactions. As well as presenting opportunities for efficiency and access, this also drives debate about roles, responsibilities, standards, and privacy. These issues will grow as new technologies in data, sensors, 5G connected devices, and biometrics come online with platforms of systemic scale. This session will discuss how technology and market trends are changing the costs, responsibilities, business models, and opportunities in identity and authentication, and how financial services firms can build on compliance capabilities to create new services and revenue streams.

Session Speakers:

  • Vivienne Artz, Chief Privacy Officer, Refinitiv
  • Sopnendu Mohanty, Chief FinTech Officer, Monetary Authority of Singapore
  • Nat Sakimura, Chairman, OpenID Foundation
  • Victoria Roig, Head of Transformation Office, Santander (Moderator)

Topic coverage:

I will continue liaising with your moderator Vicky, but to start the thought process, the following are a few suggestions of possible topics and a sequence for discussion:

  • Why Digital Identity is important: impacts from the accelerated digitalization from the pandemic, increased shift to eCommerce channels; role as a foundational building block for the digital economy; opportunities in financial inclusion
  • Supporting SMEs: the opportunities for Digital Identity in enabling SMEs to participate in the global economy, where there is no in-person sale / in-person identification; enabling identification/compliance without data retention burden
  • Financial crime: addressing current low rates of interdiction of illicit funds; eKYC, overcoming de-risking concerns; challenges/barriers to adoption for this purpose
  • Specific Initiatives: eg. Open Digital Trust initiative; the Open ID Exchange in the UK; Singapore initiatives including the ability to interface with APIX; DIACC in Canada; national KYC utilities
  • Interoperability: both (i) between Digital Identity systems, and (ii) between Identity and other capabilities and initiatives, eg. Open Banking, Payments; extension to other applications beyond finance

Fighting Back Against Digital Identity FraudDigital Identity in an Online World
