In recent years, the global financial sector has experienced a significant surge in new types of fraud and cybercrime. Breaking it down to geographic regions, we see that these dynamics are influenced by a wide array of factors such as the political setting, financial practices, IT structures and the regulatory environment.
Our security walls aren’t as high as we think they are. There are holes, and cybercriminals know how to slip through them, undetected. Application fraud has become a number one problem for companies across all verticals. In 2016, more than 25% of identity theft fraud involved the use of stolen information to open new accounts.
Behavioral biometrics enables the measurement and analysis of patterns in human activities. It’s a breakthrough cybersecurity technology that identifies people by how they do what they do, rather than static phyiscal characteristics, like what they know, or what they have access to. It is the advanced solution for fighting cybercrime in an age when criminals have more access to our personally identifiable information (PII) and more sophisticated hacking methods than ever before.

Digital transformation has swept the business world. From banking to insurance to e-commerce, being able to offer a compelling digital experience is the best way to attract and engage customers. Though digital transformation is a boon to both companies and their customers, it also introduces huge cybersecurity challenges for securing online sessions and preventing fraud.
The future of identity verification is rapidly changing. As recent conversations around high-profile security breaches and space-age technology make biometrics a hot topic in the tech world, it’s important to take a step back and examine the still-young industry as a whole.
In this panel, biometrics pioneers discuss the benefits, barriers, and challenges we can expect as more and more businesses begin improving their security measures through biometric authentication. From ubiquitous thumb prints on smartphones, to advanced behavioral technology and forthcoming facial recognition, speakers Iain Swaine (BioCatch), Steve Cook (Daon), David Pope (HooYu), and Andrew Bud (Iproov Limited) share their powerful insights on the future of biometric identity verification and how it can transform your customer’s experience.
