Entersekt's Sherif Samy recognised as a top influencer in digital identity
Entersekt, an innovator in mobile-first fintech solutions, today announced Sherif Samy, senior vice-president of Entersekt's North American operations, has been recognised as one of the key global voices on identity by One World Identity (OWI), an independent strategy and research company.
The annual OWI Top 100 Influencers in Identity list acknowledges pioneers and policymakers leading the charge to improve data and identity protection for all and unlock its potential for social and economic good.
It includes leaders from large public institutions and non-profit associations, business executives, entrepreneurs and writers. Samy was selected based on his years of expertise in the digital identity industry, leadership in helping Entersekt expand its presence in North America, speaking engagements and authored publications.
"It's an honour to be recognised by One World Identity as one of this year's Top 100 Influencers in Identity," said Samy. "The need to leverage digital identity and security to empower consumers and citizens only grows more urgent, and the contribution of organisations like OWI and the individuals on this list towards achieving this goal cannot be stressed enough. Entersekt is proud to be a part of the identity ecosystem as we explore interoperable solutions that will make everyone's digital lives easier and safer, while establishing a digital identity ecosystem that prioritises security, scalability and transparency."
Like other thought leaders on the list, Samy will attend OWI's KNOW 2019 Conference in Las Vegas, from 24 to 27 March.
Samy's inclusion among the Top 100 Influencers in Identity in 2019 mirrors Entersekt's recent growth in the identity space. A number of important strategic partnerships are being set up in North America and Europe to leverage digital identity and strong authentication to open up opportunities for financial institutions and other enterprises.
