OXFORD, Conn., Feb. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ:NXTD and NXTDW) ("NXT-ID" or the "Company"), a biometric authentication company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, announces that Mr. David Tunnell, the Company's Chief Technology Officer, has been invited to present at CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS AMERICA 2015. As an expert in biometrics and secure communications, Mr. Tunnell will speak on the critical issue of "Global Fraud: Where is the Trust in Cyberspace?"
CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS AMERICA is a new business event designed to promote smart technologies in the large and dynamic North American market.
David will discuss enabling technologies that keep private information private where it belongs while facilitating unparalleled convenience and security. Much like how people become familiar with persons' attributes such as their face, voice and other unique features and mannerisms, David will discuss methods such as dynamic pairing to enhance trust between users, devices and applications as they "learn" more about each other via historical "inter-awareness." NXT-ID's patent pending dynamic paring is means to better earn trust over time as users, devices and applications interact and authenticate with one another in order to augment and improve the state-of-the-art in cybercrime, share intelligence and respond prudently in the event of a breach.
The session will be held Tuesday, May 5th from 11:15 – 11:45 AM in Washington D.C. Key themes to be discussed will include data security, authentication, digital identities, privacy and anonymity.
