IDEMIA is one of the biggest names in biometrics and authentication, enjoying an extremely prominent role in areas such as law enforcement and mobile ID. But the company is also a pioneer in the area of financial services, where its approach to digital identity is helping a number of organizations to cope with the many disruptions and transformations being wrought by digitization. So it’s only natural that FindBiometrics found the company in attendance at this year’s Money20/20 Europe event in Amsterdam, where our Director of Digital Content, Susan Stover, caught up with Sarah Clark Senior Vice President and GM, Digital Identity, IDEMIA .
They started off their conversation by delving into IDEMIA’s idea of Augmented Identity, a term that encompasses a pretty wide range of concepts related to digital ID. And from there, the expansive discussion turned to financial inclusion, IDEMIA’s trailblazing work with the French bank Société Générale, the ethical use of biometrics, and the fight against fraud – which, as Clark points out, pretty much involves identity theft by definition, in the current era of digital banking. Listen to the full conversation below to get a more thorough idea of what makes IDEMIA a leader in digital identity and FinTech.
