2022-2023: Transformational years for Identity?

What are the major developments in digital identities in line with the growing modes of remote relationship? With renewed challenges and opportunities for governments and private actors, these years also announce the upheavals to come with the adoption of mobile electronic wallets and open-up several perspectives in the evolution of the market.

For the past few years and in an accelerated manner since the health crisis, the mode of operation favored by our society has been described as “remote”. The same can be said for our mainstream economy, which has also become predominantly online. As a result, the needs for identification, authentication and authorization, three essential functions of digital identity, have increased in both economic and civic relations.

What digital future do we want for payment?

What are the major evolutions in the payments market in Europe and around the world? After being increasingly formatted around data, as a consequence of Open Banking movement, and further digitalized through the revolution of mobile wallets, the prospect of future retail digital currencies from the Central Banks leads us to consider the possible paths of an all-digital future.

In all likelihood, the size of the global digital payments market will exceed $8 trillion by the end of this year. This is considerable, especially since this market is expected to continue to grow at a double-digit rate over the next five years. Payments continue to transform from year to year, particularly retail payments, reflecting our changing consumption patterns. Biometrics, card, mobile, data, crypto, digital currencies are symptoms of digital payments spreading everywhere and going so far as to become invisible in some of the most successful customer experiences.

With the TRUSTECH conferences, companies have a platform to discuss their digital presence, identity issues, online or physical transactions and more. It’s a medium to learn as well as teach in hopes to achieve the most safe and progressive practices possible.
