Consumer demand is driving the corporate IT environment. Business demands for IT are changing rapidly — so too are the demands on IAM — resulting in the requirement to adopt emerging technologies (e.g., mobile and cloud computing, data loss prevention, and social media) earlier and more quickly. Scalability is critical for any business that wants to catalyze short- and long-term success. A flexible workflow for identity verification can help organizations of all sizes with limited time, resources, and funding to focus their efforts on initiatives that support positive growth. While your business might be conducting background checks today, it could have different verification needs in the future to ease onboarding friction, prevent data breaches, and demonstrate regulatory compliance.
It’s important to begin laying the groundwork now for a more sophisticated and intricate verification program so you can be proactive, not reactive, but what does a scalability strategy look like? In this CPE accredited panel webinar our experts will address how to create identity and credential verification workflows that can scale with your organization as it grows, including how to:
- Gain a better understanding of the digital identity landscape,
- Ensure accuracy of both data sources and verification records,
- Centralize verification of multiple data sources into a unified platform,
- Evaluate new developments like biometrics, AI, and blockchain, and how they can impact identity and data management,
- Save money in the long-term by laying the groundwork for adaptable online verification workflows,
- Adapt and respond to new regulations.
Colin Whittaker, PCI Industry Alumni, Founder and Director Informed Risk Decisions Ltd. Colin has been instrumental in driving forward a risk and security strategy for payments over the last 15 years since he retired from the military in 2001, and took up the role of Head of Security at APACS. At APACS he started the move to confront the reality of the threat to payment systems and the implications this has on any risk and security decisions taken. He was instrumental in helping the industry coordinate the response to the wave of e-banking attacks that started in 2004, and the development of a card based customer authentication strategy to protect e-banking channels. Whilst there he was one of the first people to be elected to the PCI SSC Board of Advisors where he was always keen to try and promote the differences in threat between Europe and UK, and the US. Since that election he hasn't moved far from the PCI domain. In 2010 he moved to Visa Europe and became the Vice President Payment System Risk with responsibilities for designing and operating the Visa Europe PCI compliance strategy for European merchants and service providers. This included contributing to the strategic development of the Council through representing Visa Europe at the PCI SSC's Executive Committee, as well as the technical development of the standards. He was also responsible for coordinating Visa Europe's approach to cardholder data breaches in Europe. Colin was responsible for the changes to the Visa Europe Compliance strategy through the creation of the Technology Innovation Programme which gave the very first PCI DSS compliance relief for EMV chip accepting merchants. He has now built on this experience by learning first-hand what PCI DSS means to merchants through his experience at Carlson Wagonlit Travel. Applying PCI DSS to probably one of the most complex industry verticals and one where it is almost impossible to spend money as a customer without using credit cards! He is now working as a freelance consultant helping retailers and service providers solve their cyber security and payment security compliance dilemmas.
