Industry hosts consumer identity protection summit

Government, law enforcement agencies, large financial corporations and consumer bodies are hosting Identity Matters, a summit to address key identity protection issues.

The summit, to be held in November, will focus on why consumer identity matters to businesses and what needs to be done to protect it in a world of changing consumer demands and increasingly sophisticated criminals.

Topics will include how businesses can stop criminals from exploiting identities and how the latest technology can be used to ensure that identities of consumers as well as brands and company values are protected.

Presenters will include Jeffrey Robinson, author of The Laundrymen; Professor Laurence Alison, leading criminologist and expert on forensic psychology; and Kevin Thomson, author of Emotional Capital and a leading authority on extending the value of corporate brands.

Other speakers will include specialists from HM Treasury’s Public Private Forum on Identity and the Metropolitan Police’s e-Crime unit, alongside expert speakers from organisations leading the debate on identity including, Microsoft, BT and Unisys.

GB Group CEO Richard Law says: “This summit offers a forum for understanding why identity matters, how we can stop criminals from exploiting it and the capital value of a fully authenticated customer and employee base.

“It will focus on bringing together all sides of the debate on what constitutes identity and how we can best protect it – and what organisations can do to maximise the value of all their assets. The Summit brings together world-class speakers addressing the key issues with the very best advice to help businesses profit from better identity management.”
