As digital interactions pervade every aspect of our lives, the issues of user identification and secure authentication are a critical challenge. Traditional password-based systems have proven inadequate, leaving businesses and individuals grappling with the need for seamless yet secure experiences.

At this NBS Business Breakfast Series event, our panel of experts will discuss the Internet’s identity crisis and expose the transformative potential of mobile identity solutions. Our colleague Fabio Motoki will setup the context of our conversation with the visionary Gautam Hazari from sharing his insights on how the missing identity layer of the Internet can pave the way for a passwordless future through the integration of artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Join us as we untangle the complexities of digital identity and gain a refreshingly different perspective on how your organisation can contribute to and benefit from a world where seamless and secure experiences are the norm, without the need for passwords or cumbersome authentication processes.

themes – via artificial intelligence and machine learning – to the security of the human in our digital
world Every attendee will take away identity concepts that will transform how they use the internet,
or how their company can protect itself, and how humanising identity benefits all humans.

biometrics and Passkeys, Gautam will reveal how the missing identity layer of the Internet is hiding in plain sight and can make transactions, payments, and logins seamless and secure without the need for passwords, SMS OTPs or cumbersome authentication methods.

He will argue that while security is largely a solved issue, identity remains the burning challenge of our times.
