Sopra Steria and Synectics Solutions announced as gold sponsors for OIX’s #IdentityTrust2023 Conference

The Open Identity Exchange (OIX), a global community driving positive and inclusive developments for trusted digital identities, is pleased to announce Sopra Steria and Synectics Solutions as Gold Sponsors at this year’s #IdentityTrust2023 conference.
OIX is also pleased to announce that Biometric Update will once again be its media partner for the event which attracts around 300 people.

As the only conference in the world focused exclusively on digital ID and the biggest of its kind in the UK, #IdentityTrust2023 is FREE for organisations that will come to accept digital credentials and promises to be the most valuable event they will attend this year.

Taking place on Thursday 28th September 2023 at County Hall in London, the conference is aimed at both global and UK based organisations across many sectors – banking, finance, travel, gambling, higher education, home buying and selling, rental and many more. It will address the most important issues these organisations face on their journey to digital ID adoption. It will also provide a valuable opportunity for these organisations to network and connect with certified creators and providers of services within digital ID ecosystems from around the globe.

Sponsoring the event for the second year in a row, Sopra Steria is an organisation focused on ensuring digital technology is leveraged to build a positive future for all.

Commenting on the sponsorship, Mags Moore, Business Unit Director at Sopra Steria and Chair of the OIX Board, said: “We recognise that the future needs to be one where interactions between the digital world and society are inclusive, lasting and have a positive impact. We are focused on making this happen. This means proactively supporting influential organisations like the OIX and events like #IdentityTrust2023 where barriers are addressed head on and true progress is made. We are pleased to be playing a key role at the conference again this year.”

Taking its place as a Gold Sponsor of OIX’s #IdentityTrust2023 conference for the first time, Synectics Solutions is an industry leading organisation that creates bespoke solutions enabling private and public sector organisations to truly understand their customers, manage risk and prevent fraud.

Chris Lewis, Head of Solutions at Synectics Solutions, also commented: “Digital ID has vast potential for good in society and for businesses. For this to happen, there needs to be widespread adoption of digital ID, but if organisations do not fully trust or understand it, progress will be slow. Clarity is still needed on digital ID, which is why we fully support collaborations like the one with the OIX and key events like #IdentityTrust2023 to bring this clarity and highlight the potential benefits of digital ID adoption.”

With pertinent and insightful presentations from key figures and organisations driving progress on digital ID, the conference will cover:
• why and how the ecosystems are ready for organisations to start accepting credentials from a user’s digital ID wallet with confidence and trust
• how digital ID is taking off in key use cases such as age verification, accessing finance, home buying and selling, travel and employment vetting
• how digital ID’s will work across international boundaries
• and why dynamic, adaptable ‘smart wallets’ will be crucial in meeting the requirements of each acceptor the user wants to interact with.

Nick Mothershaw, Chief Identity Strategist at OIX, said: “This year is proving to be one of enormous transformation for digital identity across the globe. Country after country is moving towards digital ID to access public and private sector services. Organisations that will come to rely on digital ID will have to be in a position to start accepting them with confidence. #IdentityTrust2023 is the place where they will find the answers they need, as well as support and insight that is relevant to them.

“Both Sopra Steria and Synectics Solutions have been highly active members ever since joining the OIX community. Their commitment to driving the progress that will help ensure digital ID works for all the parties involved is very clear. We are delighted that two of the greatest advocates of our mission have decided to become Gold Sponsors of our flagship event.

“We are also delighted that one of the leading and most influential news sites for the global biometrics market, Biometric Update, has joined us once again as our media partner.”

OIX #IdentityTrust2023 Conference will take place on Thursday 28th September 2023 in the South Bank wing (3rd floor) of London’s iconic County Hall, which served as the headquarters of local government for London for 64 years until the late 1980’s.
