Join us on March 26 for our monthly FIN AND TONIC - this month's event is all about Digital Identity!

Digital identity is well and truly established as one of the most significant technology trends on the planet. It’s clear that the 1 billion personal identity records stolen in 2018 only added fuel to the fire. What can we expect in 2019 and what are companies proposing as a solution?

He consulted on implementations for companies like Disneyworld, Autodesk, Van Lanschot and Bell Aliant. With a background in usability and informatics at the University of Amsterdam, the focus is always on the business case and technical challenge to create the best solution for the end-user.

Subject: Business activity, customer interactions & transactions are rapidly moving online to different types of channels such as web, mobile and conversational platforms. As this shift continues, customers expect a frictionless online experience. When it comes to Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM) software technology, Onegini is the market leader in the Dutch financial sector. Onegini Connect supports web, mobile, chat and email to securely interact across those channels while staying compliant. Using a customer case approach, we will address the following topics:

  • Why is digital transformation a key driver for customer identity and access management?

  • (External) digital identities are central in creating trusted interactions. How does the best practice look like for registration and authentication?

  • How to leverage intermediaries in a compliant way in order to enhance customer engagement via (in)direct distribution models?

  • How to safely use mobile and conversational to connect and engage with your customers?

  • The difference between an out-of-the-box omnichannel CIAM solution and a toolbox
