KNOW 2019 Day 4 Recap
KNOW 2019 finished strong with a full slate of programming and compelling keynotes on the future of biometrics.
Colleen M. Manaher, Executive Director – Planning, Program Analysis and Evaluation U.S. Customs and Border Protection, outlined the Department of Homeland Security’s mission to enable frictionless biometric identity verification for travel. She had a strong appeal for the KNOW community: bring improved algorithms and future modalities, and partner on CBP initiatives. Active private sector participation is at the core of effective, secure, and privacy-preserving identity processes.
After an inspiring morning keynote, the KNOW conference featured several wonderful panels. In “Shared data in a sharing economy,” the panelists explored how a fresh perspective on identity verification is required for Gig companies growing at scale.” In a “To improve trust and safety, marketplaces have some of the most complex identification processes. These processes help reduce complicated, risky and time-consuming transactions.” – Toly Kvitnitsky, VP of Growth at Trulioo.
The entire OWI team is incredibly grateful to our excellent speakers. sponsors, attendees – and all of their hard work and participation to make this the very best KNOW ever. We hope to see everyone at a future KNOW event.
