Festival of Identity invites you to their event

The Developing Role of Identity in Open Banking

About this event

The era of open banking is upon us, but with the concept driving rapid data sharing between organisations, protecting identity remains paramount. Our international panel, kindly sponsored by Mitek Systems, will provide perspectives on:

  • The role of frameworks such as EU GDPR and Australia’s Consumer Data Right in protecting customer data in the context on open banking.
  • The potential for open banking to transform strong customer authentication and the fight against financial crime ecosystem.
  • The impact of open banking on the overall identity

Joe Bloemendaal, Head of Strategy, Mitek Systems, Netherlands

For over 15 years Joe has run sales teams and has loved being responsible for the business development in technology companies. Twice in his career, Joe has joined founding teams in companies’ early stages, remaining there until they were acquired. He is an entrepreneur at heart, and enjoyed building them from local to international organisations. Currently Joe is using his experience and expertise to help Mitek and their clients use technology to succeed in the digital identity sector. Joe would like to meet anyone who works with identity technology - people who are interested in developing interoperable self-sovereign identity services, and care about protecting personal data. He believes the true potential of the Internet will only be unlocked if we can trust people online in the same way that we can trust them offline.
