Rob Garrigan to Present on the Challenges and Remedies for a Well-Executed Mobile ID Project at ID4AFRICA

JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA – June 17, 2019 — The 5th Annual Meeting of ID4Africa is being hosted by the Republic of South Africa Department of Home Affairs in Johannesburg, South Africa. During the five-day event, in a session entitled, “Advances in Biometrics and Mobility”, Rob Garrigan, Senior Vice President of Credence ID, will present the challenges and remedies for a successful mobile ID project. This session will focus on cutting-edge innovations in biometric identification technologies and applications with special attention to mobile platforms that are driving new paradigms for identity management in Africa. During his presentation, “Mobile Identification is not just about Mobile Devices”, Mr. Garrigan, will present the challenges and remedies for a successful mobile ID project.

“Beyond the hardware and the software, there is a set of critical tools necessary to ensure the deployment and ongoing success of an identity project”, commented Mr. Garrigan. He went on to say, “Biometric identity programs are intended to provide life changing solutions for some of the world’s most neglected populations. The ability to collect social benefits, receive proper heath care and generally be included in functional and ethical society is the real return on investment. This can only be achieved with the necessary analytical, diagnostic and management capabilities to complement the device and applications.”

Africa’s economic growth is accelerating but the benefits are unevenly distributed. For social development to match economic growth and generate long-term gains, inclusiveness is essential. This can only be realized with enterprise-class, auditable, long-lasting identity solutions.
