Let us guide you through the key moments of Secure Identification 2019 (SI-2019).
SI 2019 brought together around 220 delegates from governmental organizations and eID industry companies from Europe, CIS, Africa, Asia, Central and North America. 50% of guests represented State units (Ministries of Internal and Foreign Affairs, Border Control, Immigration departments, etc.) and the other half – solution/hardware providers from 45 companies in 32 countries.
The two-day agenda of the conference was built around key topics of the industry: eID document security, digital travel credentials, biometric systems and biometric verification of citizenship, border control management, mobile and remote authentication. 20 charismatic speakers enjoyed possibility to reveal the most critical innovations of the industry to delegates. It was definitely an excellent opportunity to meet decision-makers with purchasing power in person, discover latest technology trends, learn about recent document and identity fraud cases, and establish new business connections.
We were extremely honored to welcome high-rank hosting officials with their opening speeches: Sandis Girgens, Minister for the Interior of the Republic of Latvia and Zanda Kalnina – Lukasevica, Parliamentary Secretary of Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Latvia.
