Already the most influential fintech conference in the world, Money20/20 was back in full force this year. You could feel the energy in the air as attendees, speakers, panelists, and industry leaders connected in person (with COVID-19 precautions still taken throughout the conference, of course).

For Socure, this year’s Money20/20 was the capstone to record-breaking momentumfull of industry firsts and announcements. Here are Socure’s three biggest highlights from Money20/20: 

  • Alexis Ohanian & Johnny Ayers Keynote: Digital Identity - Keys to Growth Through Inclusion

Socure CEO and co-founder Johnny Ayers sat down with Alexis Ohanian, tech founder and venture capitalist, for a keynote about the importance of fair and equitable identity verification and fraud prediction, especially for protected classes, in the financial services ecosystem. 

Alexis and Johnny discussed algorithmic bias, how digital identities can power inclusion and other key issues around the democratization of access to online services. Their talk aligned with another passion project that Socure was excited to announce: The Digital Identity Fairness & Inclusion Report. 

  • The Digital Identity Fairness & Inclusion Report

Digital identity verification and fraud mitigation technologies play a crucial role in enabling financial services to reach marginalized populations. In an industry-first collaborative research report, Socure partnered with two of the country’s leading banking institutions to conduct in-depth analyses on how machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) impacts the ethnic, racial, age, and socioeconomic bias that easily creeps into digital identity verification solutions and the risk scoring of certain fraud models.
