Join us on October 8th at 8:00 am – 9:00 am  US Eastern Time as GDC + BIIA industry experts go through the importance of identity, the move to digital identity, and how something as simple as universal access to identity can catapult an emerging market into something amazing.  

It’s easy to harness the Power of Identity in the developed world. All of us can bank, shop, and access key records online because we have digital identification; it’s something we take for granted. 

But for nearly two-thirds of the world’s population – more than 5 billion people – doing these everyday tasks is impossible. That’s because they have no form of digital ID, making it difficult for them to participate in the modern economy. The vast majority of these people live in the emerging and developing world across Asia, Africa, and South America, where meeting Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements are extremely difficult. 

Please join Global Data Consortium and the Business Information Industry Association as we explore the Power of Identity in the emerging and developing world. We’ll discuss how modern Know Your Customer regulations simply don’t reflect realties on the ground in most of the world. We’ll also explore different strategies and innovative solutions to allow all global citizens to join the modern economy.
