“I have been covering the mobile digital identity market for well over a decade and there has never been a more exciting time in biometrics,” said Peter O’Neill, President & Founder, Mobile ID World & FindBiometrics. “The experts we have assembled with Samsung SDSA for ‘FinServ in the New Age of Identity’ are simply the best in the business. They are the perfect guides to a financial world without passwords.”

“As competitive forces continue to push financial institutions to evolve their online and mobile service delivery into a true first-rate experience for their customers, banks are looking to innovations that will enable them to avoid the age old trade-off between convenience and security, knowing full well they cannot afford to undervalue either, states Brett McDowell, Executive Director, The FIDO Alliance. “This webinar is a good opportunity for financial institutions to learn how FIDO authentication standards and the growing ecosystem of FIDO Certified products and services can make this trade-off go away by delivering strong authentication security in a very easy to use experience.”
