Jumio CEO Stephen Stuut to Participate in Remote Identity Panel at the 2017 K(NO)W Identity Conference

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - May 11, 2017) - Jumio, the creator of Netverify® Trusted Identity as a Service (TIaaS), has announced that CEO Stephen Stuut will join a panel of top industry experts to discuss the importance of a hybrid approach to identity proofing at the upcoming K(NO)W Identity Conference. While machine learning and automation is valuable in ensuring ID verification occurs quickly, this technology must be paired with ID experts to ensure organizations are meeting Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements while delivering a frictionless user experience. The conference is being held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington D.C., May 15-17, 2017.

The K(NO)W Identity Conference is an inclusive and neutral platform for participants to connect with every aspect of the identity industry, across all industry segments, from biometrics and identity access management to fraud prevention and identity verification, to discuss the future of identity. K(NO)W offers a unique opportunity to connect with other industry professionals, grow networks, solidify partnerships, and learn the inside scoop from the top business leaders.

What: Stephen will be on the panel "Remote Identity Proofing: Opportunities and The Road Ahead" alongside industry experts from AuthenticID, BBVA, and LexisNexis Risk Solutions.

As organizations across all industries conduct more and more transactions digitally, remote identity proofing has become an increasingly valuable tool. However, many remote identity proofing solutions have relied on attributes which have become widely available as the result of data breaches. This panel will explore the latest paradigms in achieving highly trusted identities and discuss which technical, legal and regulatory barriers should be addressed to allow for greater cross-border identity verification collaboration and direct real-time verification.
