As one of the most dynamic and flourishing global financial centres in the world, Hong Kong's financial and payments infrastructure and regulation are well developed to usher the evolution of fintech and mobile innovation. Representing Tradelink as a FIDO Alliance member company, Mr. Andrew Cheng, Tradelink's CTO was invited to present at the "FIDO Authentication in Hong Kong" webinar on Friday, November 16 at 9:00am HK.
During the webinar, Mr. Cheng shared the current landscape of biometric authentication applications in Hong Kong, as well as Tradelink's experience in rolling out FIDO (UAF) in multiple customer deployments. He gave a brief report on the current adoption of FIDO (UAF) in Hong Kong and shared his observations and insights on how FIDO (UAF) could be further taken up in the region. Riding on the digital transformation trend in the banking and financial sectors, Tradelink has successfully implemented FIDO (UAF) biometric authentication and digital onboarding solutions to a host of banks, stock brokers, insurance companies and other financial service entities. Through these Tradelink solutions, millions of transactions using FIDO authentication are processed monthly in Hong Kong.
Before concluding the webinar, Mr. Cheng outlined Hong Kong's further development of FIDO (UAF) authentication for both Government and commercial services under the new Hong Kong eID initiative which will come onboard in 2020.
The webinar was a great success. We look forward to sharing more FIDO information and applications in Hong Kong with the industry players around the world in the future.
