Hello, I'm Steve Craig, Chief Enablement Officer at PEAK IDV. I started PEAK IDV last summer with a mission to demystify identity verification technologies and help companies achieve peak performance in the digital identity industry. This past fall, I launched PEAK IDV ACADEMY to enable and empower businesses and teams to achieve their full potential.
Now, I'm proud to announce the PEAK IDV EXECUTIVE SERIES, our industry newsletter and video podcast highlighting digital identity innovators, entrepreneurs, change makers, C-suite leaders, and other top executives in digital identity. With EXECUTIVE SERIES, we're producing a video first podcast, meaning every episode will be recorded with lights and cameras on.
By watching and listening, you'll gain unique insight into the latest advancements from the people making it happen. You'll also get to know personally the pioneers behind the press releases, what makes them tick, what drives them to do what they do.
2022 was a rough year for digital identity.
Yet identity verification is more important than ever in today's digital age. With the rise of online transactions, the increasing threat of sophisticated fraud and new attacks from generative media, it's crucial that we find ways to work together and win the fight against forces with bad intentions. A person's identity is their most important asset.
If people cannot safely and securely assert their identity. They are unlikely to unlock the benefits of our modern society. Credit invisible and underbanked individuals are a growing segment of our population, and we as leaders have a duty to ensure they have equal opportunities and access to financial services, to education, to jobs. To healthcare, to trust and safety to overall improvements in the quality of life that technology affords us all. It all starts with identity.
In executive series, I dive into the latest developments in identity, including doc-centric, data-centric and device-centric identity verification techniques. But I'll also explore authentication, biometrics, decentralized identity, web3 and blockchain, privacy regulations, artificial intelligence including computer vision, as well as CIP, KYC, KYB, AML, and many more of your favorite three letter acronyms.
But this series is not just providers and vendors. I speak with practitioners to gain a better understanding of their challenges and how they think about digital identity systems and how they implement them. If you care about digital identity, don't miss the PEAK IDV EXECUTIVE SERIES. Be sure to like, subscribe, follow, share, post, react, repost, but most of all, buckle up for the journey.
In the first episode, I speak with identity industry veteran Mike Nelson. Mike was most recently Chief Revenue Officer at BehavioSec and is one of the founders of the Mitek Systems identity verification business. Mike will share his C-Suite perspective on the evolution and the future of identity, what it takes to build and lead a go-to-market team in this space, and how he sees the landscape changing in 2023 and beyond.
I look forward to seeing you in the PEAK IDV EXECUTIVE SERIES. Until next time.
