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. This conversation, recorded at Lendit Europe, October 2017 in London, was moderated by Alan Goode of Goode Intelligence.
In this week’s blog, we examine the differences between these two promising fields in the world of cybersecurity, noting that even though they sound the same, there are critical differences.
In recent years, data science has emerged into the limelight and gained more attentive scrutiny by business leaders, academics and practitioners. Many have opined that this new field has become a driving force in technology markets, generating tremendous innovation and growth. At its core, data science is an interdisciplinary field that employs automated methods to analyze massive amounts of data, incorporating concepts from different disciplines such as: computer science, mathematics, statistics, analytics and modelling.
With all the fraud today coming from authenticated sessions, behavioral biometrics are gaining in prominence now, particularly in banking, because they can provide a form of continuous authentication without compromising the user experience.
