Cyber Security Review Profile connectID

Biometrics + Identity Association (IBIA), has become the world’s premier event dedicated to all aspects of human identity technology and its implementation in the digital, mobile, and physical domains.

The event has grown as governments, the private sector, and consumers, increasingly recognize the importance of secure identity solutions. The challenge is to understand how  these systems can be used in a way that is natural and frictionless, yet is trusted, and sensitive to privacy concerns.

Our mission…

Secure identity technology can be used in a multitude of ways. From next-generation authentication solutions for accessing digital or mobile infrastructures, to securing transactions, and delivering new, efficient ways to identify citizens.

connect:ID’s mission in 2017 is to explore how secure identity technology is enhancing authentication, wherever it is used – from aviation and border control, to healthcare, finance, education and countless other markets.

We will also consider challenging issues, such as identity fraud, personal data theft, the intensification of national security threats, and cyber intrusions. Customers, employees, and citizens also need a less frustrating, yet trusted, method to authenticate their identity.

The connect:ID exhibition is one of the identity industry´s best opportunities to demonstrate next-generation products, solutions and services to a highly qualified visitor audience, including adopters and government officials from around the world.
