Identity Strategy for Innovation

Telefónica’s business has been, for many years exclusively, the traditional one of a Telco Company. However, after an intensive diversification, at the end of the first decade of the century, Telefónica boosted its Enterprise digital portfolio by incorporating Managed Security Services and Cybersecurity.

Since 2013 Telefónica has continued increasing its security offering with the generation of brand new and innovative products focused on Identity and Privacy. This innovative character is reflected in the strategy to devise these new products by maximizing four key vectors:

  • Identification
  • Usability
  • Compliance
  • Universality

With this contribution we want to share with delegates how these four vectors are the key for innovation in our security services surrounding Identity

Facing The Future: Identity Opportunities for Telco Operators

With the advent of 4G/LTE, mobile operators are facing challenges and opportunities that will shape the future direction of communications for at least the next five to ten years.  Faced with the erosion of revenues from the rapid encroachment of the so-called OTT (over the top) players, such as Apple, Google and many others, into their traditional market strongholds, operators are coming to the increasing realisation that data – ‘big data’ – represents their most significant asset in terms of being able to provide added value to their customers in the future. A key aspect of this transformation will be how operators are seen to astutely manage the wealth of user data at their disposal to good effect and position themselves as secure identity brokers and/or identity providers in what is already becoming a highly competitive market.  

This panel session will highlight the challenges facing operators in this brave new world and give examples of how some operators are already addressing the opportunities. Whilst focused on telco, other industry sectors, such as postal and general utilities, are facing similar challenges and opportunities and the session will also get an insight from these perspectives.
