About the free webinar series

In today’s mobile-first environment, a user’s mobile phone number and associated attributes has become a data-rich identity to be used as credentials while engaging with businesses along the digital journey. Mobile identity is verified in real-time using deterministic – not historical or predictive – data attached to the mobile number account.

Used in conjunction with other identity verification methods for a comprehensive authentication approach, businesses can further reduce fraud risk while lowering friction significantly to users.

Speakers Brian Libonate, Sr. Product Manager from Zumigo, and Serge Ngatta, Sr. Director Portfolio Product Management from Equifax, will showcase why it’s critical for fraud fighters to collaborate – the federation of good guys. They will discuss how the joint solutions between Equifax and Zumigo offer businesses a better way to strengthen cyber resiliency, build trust, and improve user experience.

Here's what you'll learn:

Challenges and opportunities of digital identity authentication in today’s mobile-first environment.
Why a user’s mobile Identity is the new digital, real-time SSN
How mobile identity can be integrated into other identity verification solutions and applicable use cases.
Overview of the Equifax and Zumigo partnership and solutions.
Real-world customer stories on how they leveraged the joint solutions to reduce fraud and improve business.
