The San Francisco event brought to a close the Digital Identity Summit 2017 series, which also featured events in Hong Kong and London. The series assembled key players from the digital, risk and fraud space to explore one of the most critical issues facing digital businesses today – trust.
The three-day event featured speakers from a rich array of organizations, including Citibank, Gartner, Uber, JP Morgan Chase, LexisNexis, Netflix, Lloyds Banking Group, Pitney Bowes and more; illustrating the cross-industry approach needed to deliver on the promise of digital identity in powering today’s digital economy. The extensive agenda featured 40 speakers across main stage presentations, industry roundtables and breakout sessions.
The event hosts, ThreatMetrix, leveraged the Digital Identity Summit to unveil a revolutionary advancement in the space. ThreatMetrix announced ThreatMetrix ID™, which provides a unique, anonymized customer identifier for the 1.4 billion users on the Digital Identity Network®, providing the first and only digital ID of its kind.
“Re-establishing trust online is a business imperative for organizations attending the Digital Identity Summit, who are transacting and interacting with their customers hundreds, thousands, or even millions of time a day,” said Armen Najarian, chief marketing officer at ThreatMetrix. “Establishing a true digital identity helps pull back the curtain of web-based anonymity, enabling the accurate trust decisions that allow business to grow and thrive.”
