Identity management is key to increasing security, reducing fraud and developing a seamless customer experience

I enjoyed participating in the Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF) Enterprise webinar on December 9, 2021.

MEF explores its recent Personal Data and Identity Management Enterprise Survey – supported by Boku – in a webinar on 9th December 2021. MEF Programme Director, Andrew Parkin-White, is joined by Michael Becker, CEO of Identity Praxis and MEF Advisor and Phil Todd, Director of Stereoscope, who co-authored the report.

Andrew Parkin-White wrote a nice blog piece that summarised our discussion. Three learnings came from our dialog:

  • Identity management is an iterative process with three core elements – initial identification, authentication (re-identifying the individual) and verification (ensuring the individual is who they claim to be)
  • Enterprises employ a vast array of technologies to execute these processes which are growing in scope and complexity
  • Understanding why identity management is necessary to enterprises and how this creates opportunities for vendors

You can watch the entire session you YouTube (60 min).
