The seminar presents a line-up of excellent international speakers, ranging from end users (who share their experiences with biometrics in their day to day applications) to experts who will bring you up to date with the state of the art in biometric technology advances. Speakers will focus on the underlying business cases and developments in mobile banking and financial transactions. They will share their experiences from a business perspective, touching important aspects such as process flows, added value, fraud reduction, implementation strategy and client experience.

Biometrics in Banking and payments will provide guidance on how biometrics can be used to optimize key aspects of the banking and payment processes, such as customer interaction, operational efficiency, fraud reduction and prevention. During the seminars we will reflect the many new opportunities arising from the gradual shift away from desktop/notebook computing towards smartphones, tablets and other portable devices, while sharing best practice of apps and web-based applications. You will learn about biometric solutions for in-branch and mobile environment and for internal and customer-facing usage. There will be presentations about how biometrics support mega trends such as personalization and location independent services.

Panel Discussion

Soon all smartphones will be equipped with some kind of biometric authentication functionality. At the same time mobile transactions will increasingly depent on biometric authentication. But how do we know that this kind of authentication is sufficiently reliable across the different vendors? Is there a need for the evaluation of the performance of mobile biometrics? If so: what are the requirements?
