From Design to Deployment: This Is the One Element We Can’t Get Wrong

Friday, October 21, 1:30pm-3:00pm EDT

Sponsored by:

Establishing trust in a phone call – this goes beyond verifying the identity of the originating service provider and every party in between, to verifying the identity of the calling party itself. From design, to deployment, to real-life consumer use of the technology, to enforcement, and beyond, trust in caller identity is the key to the framework. 

In this webinar we’ll discuss the importance of establishing trusted enterprise identity, the challenges to vet and validate various data elements, practical application of identity authentication framework across channels, and more. Plus, all registrants will receive a copy of our identity framework guide: “KYC Fundamentals for Telecom.”

Session highlights include:

  • Importance of enterprise identity as a cornerstone of communications trust
  • Challenges in establishing and applying a trust framework
  • Practical recommendations on how those in telco can use KYC principles to improve their customer vetting practices

Presented by Sarah Delphey, VP of Trust Solutions, Numeracle; Pierce Gorman, Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff, Numeracle; and Frank Pettinato, CEO at Avantive Solutions.
