Session Description

Digital identity is crucial to the success of digital transformation across many consumer and business services. It unlocks the long-term growth of e-commerce, the safe delivery of e-government and the ability for users and businesses to trust each other in the digital space. Because digital identity needs to connect people to their digital selves, digital services are increasingly looking to the mobile industry to enrich their identity management systems. This session will discuss how mobile industry capabilities have been implemented to elevate confidence in both public and private services.


Our inspiring speakers will dive into the future of mobile authentication, uncover crucial digital identity expectations across sectors and discuss how mobile industry can work together to enhance identity solutions.


The mobile authentication market is rapidly evolving and the session will open with the latest insights on market trends. With SMS-based authentication growth expected to slow down in 2024*, our panelists will then explore the latest innovations in mobile authentication that lead to a passwordless future.


In the face of evolving fraud trends, the payment industry continuously improves how it secures transactions. In this context, mobile intelligence offers new data points and fraud signals to enrich account verification and help businesses manage risk. In the near-future, the European Digital Identity regulation will equip EU citizens with digital identity wallets as early as 2026. The mobile industry is collaborating with partners and governments to provide strong assets for the development of digital identity wallets. Our speakers will share their views of the challenges for digital identity across sectors and then discuss opportunities to collaborate with the mobile industry to build tomorrow’s solutions. 


Join us to explore how the mobile industry will revolutionise digital identity in 2024.
