[Illustration] Woman in front of huge mobile phone The European banking ecosystem is a hyper-regulated market, encompassing accounting policy, risk credit, and involving Agencies such as the EBA (European Banking Authority) in Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and counter-terrorism financing actions, on top of the overarching EU DG FISMA.

In parallel, banks are providing financial services that are composed mainly by three offers: banking account, payments means and loans. In this respect all main banks’ activities are impacted by European regulations and by the digitalisation of the society.

Biometrics is now a critical technology empowering several policies to make sure that any customers’ and prospects’ digital identity are secure when entering into:

  • Purely on-line on-boarding or enrolment to a new account covered by the AML regulation, also known as “Know Your Customer”.
  • Secure electronic authentication to your on-line banking account, covered by the PSDII directive.
  • Secure electronic signature when subscribing to on-line services, covered by the eIDAS regulation.
  • Secure contactless physical payments.

The event will be centred on policy, standard, technologies and business, around three pillars:

  1. Digital Identity and biometrics in the banking world: the Policy landscape.
  2. The Biometrics technology challenges of the digital Identity verification.
  3. Focus on key topics and challenges.

The speaker roster will include officials from Governmental Agencies, Banking industry practitioners and well as Digital Identity and Biometrics experts. The program will include engaging with an expert panel on current challenges of digital identity verification.
