Identity and Fraud Are Becoming Synonymous

Trust is not a transactional feature of a digital identity system between identity creators and identity subjects, but rather, it is an inbuilt part. Given the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on eCommerce volumes, the advent of remote/hybrid working and the demand for eGovernment services, digital identity’s tie with privacy and security has become much more visible. An ever-increasing number of fraudulent activities highlights the need to ensure customer security and protection of personal and businesses data for integrity of digital identity systems. Fraud and digital identities are closely intertwined, also because preventing fraud involves getting the right identity datapoints, understanding their significance and acting upon the related findings.

Governments Will Ramp Up Their Digital Identity Efforts

Government regulations and initiatives around digital identity are a vital force shaping the market landscape. Success of eGovernment services is largely dependent on a mechanism of identifying citizens/users in an assured manner, usually via striving to create trusted identities. Even prior to COVID-19, governments around the globe were employing digital identity-related initiatives in areas other than eGovernment services, such as border controls and telehealth. Compelled by the challenges faced in terms of cybersecurity and citizen trust in identity initiatives, governments will increasingly collaborate with third-party vendors to come up with solutions with better usability and security.

Identity Verification Use Cases and Underlying Technologies Will Continue to Dominate the Market

Verification is one of the key areas affecting the digital identity market, mostly owing to the catalyst power of the pandemic digitalising transactions across all industries and business verticals. The solutions and use cases of digital identity verification (ie, login, anti-fraud, and decentralised identity) are numerous, as secure and convenient customer onboarding has been at the forefront of any critical digital engagement. These use cases and underlying technologies, such as biometrics, lend themselves to different industries and verticals and so, they will continue to enjoy customer uptake for the foreseeable future.
