EAB to host three ‘Biometrics in Banking and Payments’ seminars

March 30, 2015 - 

The European Association for Biometrics announced it is organizing a series of three ‘Biometrics in Banking and Payments’ seminars that will address the broader financial industry.

The seminars, which will take place at Frankfurt on September 24, London on October 16, and Amsterdam on November 26, will directly interact and engage with the local, regional and national financial communities.

The EAB is working with local partners who have direct access to the financial industry to organize the one-day seminars, which will detail the many opportunities of biometrics in the financial and payments markets.

“Now, while biometrics have started to proliferate into various new social and business communities it is important that mature knowledge is transferred and understood,” said Max Snijder, secretary of the EAB management board and organizer of the series. “The ‘Biometrics in Banking and Payments’ seminar is exactly doing that by providing first class content and networking.”

The seminars are intended for business, distribution, and IT executives who are looking to improve their banking, payment and insurance processes and business.

Attendees will be instructed on how biometric applications can help optimize key aspects of the banking and payment processes to increase customer interaction, operational efficiency and fraud reduction and prevention.

Additionally, the seminars will emphasize a number of use cases based on successful implementations and how to adapt them in the respective countries of the participants.

The seminar programs will cover biometrics for banking and payments at the strategic and regulatory levels (European legislative and regulatory aspects), the major drivers and developments in modern banking and payment practices, innovative implementations, and products and solutions.

The seminar will also feature a showcase exhibition where companies will be demonstrating their products and solutions, including Bitkom for the Frankfurt seminar, Financial Fraud Action UK (FFAUK) for the London seminar, and Holland FinTech for the Amsterdam event.
