Financial institutions from all over the world are facing increasingly strict regulations regarding the verification and authentication of their customers’ identity. Furthermore, with the increasing amount of data breaches, status-quo identity verification processes have not only been compromised but have also made complying with current regulations harder. This ever-changing environment has forced a tipping point for organizations to regard the adoption of new technologies for identity verification as a must-have rather than a nice-to-have.
In the end, financial institutions must satisfy consumers’ demands for speed and ease of use to prevent them from going to the competition. To gain a competitive edge, remain compliant, and offer a frictionless and user experience, it is imperative for FIs to invest in technologies that bridge the compliance-convenience gap.
