The EAB Banking Seminar in Frankfurt is organized in partnership with BITKOM and is attended by the financial sector and ID industry and will take place between September and December 2018 in Europe’s financial capitals – Frankfurt, Amsterdam and Madrid (2019). We will discuss the latest trends that are helping to improve customer ID security, such as blockchain, AI and smartphone biometrics. We will also share best practice models and assess the impact of new legislation, like GDPR.
