FEBRUARY 25, 2019, SAN FRANCISCO: Onfido, the award-winning global identity verification platform, today announced that its Director of Policy, Parker Crockford had been named a 2019 Top 100 Influencer in Identity by One World Identity (OWI), a leading data intelligence company focused on identity, cybersecurity and the data economy.

“The 2019 Top 100 Influencers in Identity is a who’s who of names making a meaningful impact in this important field,” said Travis Jarae, founder and CEO of OWI. “We are proud to recognize the contributions that Parker has made to the identity industry through his work with Onfido.”

Each year OWI creates this list which includes pioneers, innovators and policymakers working to advance inclusion by improving access to products and services, while keeping personal data safe and protecting individual privacy.

“I’m humbled to be recognized as part of this amazing force for good, helping drive awareness, innovation and new standards for identity verification in order to provide better access to online services that people badly need,” said Parker Crockford, Director of Policy at Onfido. “With increased pressure from consumers to safeguard their data and more companies transacting online, there has never been a more important time to come together as an industry to fight fraud and find digital identity solutions that build consumer trust while empowering businesses to easily verify users.”

Parker is recognized in the industry for his years of service helping to build the new identity standard for the Web through policy analysis, coalition building, and community engagement. He sits on several boards including the FIDO Alliance, and was a founding member of the Better Identity Coalition (BIC).

Onfido is building the new identity standard for the internet. Our AI-based technology assesses whether a user’s government-issued ID is genuine or fraudulent, and then compares it against their facial biometrics.

Next month, Onfido will be attending KNOW Conference 2019 in Las Vegas, presented by OWI, if you would like to meet up, please get in touch.
