FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With 1.6 trillion digital transactions estimated daily, iconectiv, an authoritative partner of the global communications industry, has confirmed Chief Technology Officer, Chris Drake, will provide a keynote address, Never Underestimate the Power of Identity, at the ITEXPO conference on February 8, 2017 in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Drake will present a comprehensive overview on the crucial role an individual’s mobile identity can serve for identification and authentication purposes in a complex digital economy.
For high level IT and telecom decision makers attending the three day event, Drake’s opening day keynote address provides an insightful introduction into a uniquely impervious and widely accessible digital asset, an individual’s telephone number, as a primary defense against fraud and other consumer harm.
“Millions of connections between people and things occur daily: calls, texts, social media, financial transactions, sensor-driven events,” said Drake. “With all of that continuous activity comes one constant that an individual’s mobile identity can reliably provide efficiency and protection as our connected society continues to grow exponentially.”
With over 25 years of industry experience, Drake brings a practical perspective to the challenges faced by global markets in an era of increasing fraudulent threats. In addition to his prominent executive role at iconectiv, Drake serves on the board and executive committee of the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) and the Industrial Advisory Board for the Security and Software Engineering Research Center (S2ERC IAB) through Georgetown, Ball State University and the National Science Foundation. Most recently, Drake was named to the 2017 Board of Directors for the Telecommunications Industry Association (TIA).
