Money Makes the News Go Round in This Week’s Top Biometrics Stories Roundup

Money Makes the News Go Round in This Week's Top Biometrics Stories Roundup

This week saw a significant portion of the biometrics industry flock to Las Vegas for the annual Money20/20 USA financial services conference. That’s because biometric technology has played an increasingly important role in the financial services industry over the last several years; and in keeping with the trend, there was a lot of chatter about biometric FinTech both on stage and on the show floor at this year’s Money20/20 event for the Americas.

The excitement around these discussions is perfectly clear in this week’s roundup of FindBiometrics’ top posts, with many readers opting more to listen to the news rather than read about it. That’s because we delivered a number of audio interviews with high-level executives and industry leaders straight from the show floor of Money20/20 USA:

Entitled “Invisible Authentication: How UIX-Focused Biometrics Can Make Passwords Disappear“, the discussion was moderated by FindBiometrics Digital Content VP Susan Stover, and featured executives from BioConnect, IDEMIA, and Onfido, as well as the insights of Acuity Market Research Principal Analyst Maxine Most:
