This week, we brought together key solution providers and other stakeholders in the Dutch landscape as part of the first Identity & Security Roundtable for 2018. This forum addressed the trends, opportunities and challenges arising in the identity & security environment.
As the shift to digital economy and the development of online financial services continue, risks such as fraud, cyber attacks and money laundering become more widespread. Therefore, it is imperative to promote understanding and knowledge-sharing on how the identity and security sectors can impact the market as a whole.
For this reason, we held and moderated a lively discussion that explored potential paths leading to the adoption of more secure and user friendly solutions when it comes to e-commerce, financial and public services. Attending representatives were Joao Vasco from Deloitte, Robert van Kleef from Verify-U, Sheree Walsh & Mathijs Brand from Onegini, Jelger Groenland from Innopay, Allard Keuter from the Dutch Payments Association, Joe Bloemendaal from Mitek Systems, Marco Gouw & Clemens Bloemen from Signicat, Tim Eggen from Connective and Hans Horn & Hans ten Hove from Biocryptology,who hosted this event.
Participants were unanimous in the opinion that Dutch regulators and large institutions should engage with other parties more frequently and that clear standard setting and harmonization will facilitate the implementation of better solutions on a larger scale.
Overall, this discussion pointed on practical measures that can be taken within the ecosystem due to the importance of identity & security solutions to further developments in finance, as well as the efficiencies that better solutions bring to organizations and consumers. The insights provided during this session help us involve other stakeholders in the Dutch landscape and to shape our agenda to optimise its relevancy for our community.
