Webinar

Digital identity: the shape of things to come

< return to all events

David Birch, Author, Advisor and Commentator on digital financial service
Gareth Narinesingh, Commercial Director - Financial Services, Yoti

Opening bank accounts remotely, proving who you are online, trying to purchase an age restricted product, accessing government services or evidencing that you have had a Covid vaccine... Digital identity is the solution which tackles all of these tasks through using technology.

In the latest webinar from our Centre for Digital Banking and Finance, we will be joined by Dave Birch, renowned author and commentator on digital identity in financial services, and Gareth Narinesingh from digital identity platform Yoti.

Dave and Gareth will share their views on the future role of digital identity in supporting the economy, improving access to financial services and protecting consumers and businesses alike from online fraud.

We'll ask them what they think the key opportunities, challenges and risks are and what the role of the financial sector, policy makers and technology providers should be in supporting the development of robust national digital identity systems.

David Birch, Author, Advisor and Commentator on digital financial service
Principal at 15Mb, his advisory company, he is Global Ambassador for the secure electronic transactions consultancy, Consult Hyperion, Fintech Ambassador for Digital Jersey and Non-Executive Chair at Digiseq Ltd. He is an internationally-recognised thought leader in digital identity and digital money. Ranked one of the top 100 fintech influencers for 2021, previously named one of the global top 15 favourite sources of business information by Wired magazine and one of the top ten most influential voices in banking by Financial Brand, he created one of the top 25 "must read" financial IT blogs and was found by PR Daily to be one of the top ten Twitter accounts followed by innovators (along with Bill Gates and Richard Branson).

His latest book "The Currency Cold War-Cash and Cryptography, Hash Rates and Hegemony" was published in May 2020. His previous book "Before Babylon, Beyond Bitcoin: From money we understand to money that understands us" was published in June 2017 with a foreword by Andrew Haldane, Chief Economist at the Bank of England. The LSE Review of Books said the book should be "widely read by graduate students of finance, financial law and related topics as well as policy makers involved in financial regulation". The London Review of Books called his earlier book "Identity is the New Money'' fresh, original, wide-ranging and "the best book on general issues around new forms of money".
