Group Futurista is a leading global events company that creates its emerging technology summits. To keep up with innovations all around the world amid the current pandemic, Group Futurista launched the FutureCast Series of webinars, a part of which was “Reimagining Digital Identity During and After COVID-19 for FI 6.0” on March 24, 2020. 

This was another insightful webinar, which was hosted by David Wooldridge, who is a video, radio and events presenter and who is known for his genuine personality and charm. Having impressed various global organizations, from the sports industry to finance, he adds enthusiasm to any event and broadcast production.

This webinar was sponsored by Socure and Onfido and many experts from various fields and industries came together to be a part of this webinar and to speak about the technological advances happening in the field of digital identity, including:

  • Phil Lam, executive director of identity technology transformation services at GSA, who spoke about “How the Pandemic Accelerated Digital Identity in Government.”

  • Adam Walendziewski, global SME/MC, digital platform center director at ING, spoke about “How ING Bank in Poland was preparing its corporate customers for COVID-19 not knowing the epidemic is coming.”

All these sessions were very informative and thought-provoking. Furthermore, one of the best parts of this webinar was the panel discussion, which was joined by Phil Lam, and the topic of the discussion was “Trends in Digital Identity: What new changes will prevail in the year 2021?”

This whole event was concluded by announcing the upcoming Webinar “Future of Digital Workplace Webinar” on March 30, 2021, at 15:00 GMT.
