A big thank you to everyone who joined our webinar on Face the Challenge: Singapore’s Solution to Digital ID Verification.
We were honored to have Quek Sin Kwok, Senior Director of National Digital Identity at the Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech), as our guest on the panel.
He was joined by iProov’s founder and CEO, Andrew Bud, and by Dr Foong Wai Keong from systems integrator, Toppan Ecquaria.
The webinar kicked off with a presentation from Dominic Foon at GovTech. He talked about Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative and the role that national digital identity plays in growing the economy. He also provided an overview of the SingPass platform, which is used by 4 million Singapore residents to transact with over 400 digital services.
Dominic also explained the importance of GovTech’s biometrics-as-a-service platform. This enables private enterprises to take advantage of the government’s National Digital Identity (NDI) infrastructure, offering simplified face authentication to customers without the business needing to invest in biometric systems. A local bank using the NDI platform has already seen thousands of authentications with a high success rate.
A panel discussion followed the presentation. Some of the points covered on the webinar include:
