GSMA Mobile Connect + FIDO Alliance: The Future of Strong Authentication

January 21, 2019 @ 12:30 pm 6:00 pm Europe/London

GSMA and FIDO Alliance are pleased to jointly present a “Future of Strong Authentication” seminar in London on January 21, from 12:30-18:00 at GSMA’s headquarters, with a networking reception to follow.

This seminar is targeted at service providers in mobility, finance and payments who are keen to learn how industry initiatives in user authentication (such as Mobile Connect from GSMA and open specifications from FIDO Alliance) can help them provide a simpler and more secure user experience while also complying with emerging regulatory and industry trends such as PSD2, GDPR and open banking. Expert speakers will come from leading organizations in the mobile communications, payments and government who collectively will provide attendees with a deeper understanding on business benefits, best practices and the underlying technologies that can help them chart a path forward in this evolving market landscape.

Mobile Connect is a portfolio of mobile-based secure identity capabilities giving simple, secure and convenient access to online services. Over 71 mobile operators have deployed Mobile Connect in over 38 markets supporting 485m monthly users.
