Identity industry leader joins Trust Stamp Advisory Board
Trust Stamp has welcomed Emma Lindley to its Advisory Board to help guide the development of inclusive AI-powered facial biometric identity authentication solutions, the company announced.
Lindley is co-founder of Women in Identity, an experienced professional with over 16 years of leadership experience in the identity industry, and a supporter of digital diversity and inclusion. Her background includes identity innovation work with both large enterprises and independent ventures, in addition to her work with Women in Identity, a nonprofit organization that advocates for diversity in the industry.
For two years, Lindley worked as Head of Identity and Risk in Europe at Visa. She had successful exit strategies with two of her startups: Confyrm, focused on digital identity and fraud alert, purchased by Capital One, and Innovate Identity, which offered advisory services focused on the creation of digital trust.
She is an influential conference speaker in the identity industry and was recognized in the KNOW Identity Top 100 Leaders in Identity in 2017, 2018, and 2019, and voted CEO of the Year by the same organization in 2017. She was also named to the Innovate Finance Powerlist for Women in 2016 and 2017.
“I’m delighted to be joining the Trust Stamp Advisory Board. At a time when data breaches are at an all-time high, we need to do everything we can to protect consumer data,” Lindley said. “Trust Stamp has developed some powerful privacy-enhancing technology, which coupled with their considered approach and great company culture means they have a real opportunity to do some pioneering work in the space.”
“The team is thrilled to have Emma on board. She is a critical addition to our globally diverse team, and her successes with previous companies highlight the importance of leadership through a variety of perspectives,” said Andrew Gowasack, Trust Stamp President. “Emma’s nonprofit, Women in Identity, believes that ‘Digital solutions built for everyone are built by everyone.’ This incredibly powerful statement resonates with us, as we strive to develop global inclusive identity services.”
He went on to say, “Emma’s professional experience speaks for itself, but her insights into the challenges facing the future of digital identity are unparalleled.”
