3 Reasons to Attend MWCA’s Identity Seminar

September 1, 2017

Whilst digital technology has stimulated the growth of new and innovative services across practically every sector in the, service providers have yet to fully capitalise on this opportunity. Why? Against a backdrop of high profile security breaches and data leaks, customers repeatedly express a significant degree of unwillingness to adopt such solutions.

Remedying this requires businesses to place greater emphasis on their handling of data and overall digital identity strategy. Those that do will find themselves developing a reputation as trusted brand – outshining their competitors in the process.

At this year’s Mobile World Congress Americas Identity seminar, ‘Delivering Global Identity Services’, service providers and mobile network operators will have the chance to learn how Mobile Connect, the operator-developed digital identity solution, can be easily adopted to provide a secure and convenient means of authentication, authorisation and verification. Those that attend can add value to their business by:

Learning about the latest trends in the identity market

The seminar will address the ways in which the identity market is changing, how it will evolve in the near future and the ways in which companies need to change their strategies to bring greater commercial success. The session can help people understand how Mobile Connect can meet the various needs of companies in different markets, and how its products have helped companies increase their revenue.

Understanding how Mobile Connect is ideal for supporting cross-border trade

As global trades continues to expand, service providers are increasingly aware of commercial opportunities beyond their domestic market. One of the greatest impediments to realising this is lack of ways in which customers from one country can securely use services from another. This seminar will help attendees understand why Mobile Connect, which is based on the ubiquity of mobile networks and mobile phones, is ideally suited to enable greater cross-border trade.

Leveraging the knowledge of industry experts

With digital identity increasingly recognised as pivotal to the success of any public or private sector service, identity experts are becoming central to any commercial strategy. This seminar, with its array of thought leaders and industry experts, is an excellent opportunity to discover the range of opinions that are effectively shaping the identity market. Anyone attending will be able to pitch their questions during the panel session and learn from the expert analysis of Mobile Connect’s use cases.

This seminar is open to anyone attending Mobile World Congress Americas and will take place at 14:00-16:00, 13 September, Room 208, Level 2 Moscone South
