The Center focuses on research in business practices, communication, policies and technologies that impact all aspects of financial services:

  • Trusted transactions so that individuals can access their money efficiently in the physical and online environments; and,
  • Verification of identities so that unauthorized individuals cannot get access.
  • Identity owner (individuals, businesses, and agencies) control regarding the collection, sharing and selling of their identity information associated with their finances.
  • Identity management and security where convenience and security are one.

Success in these areas is critical to preventing breaches or disrupting the transfer of illicit funds and money laundering.
