What do you think is the biggest lesson that the industry will take away from the COVID-19 crisis?

The pandemic has accelerated the overall digitalization of the aviation industry. When many services and processes became remote, airlines and airports had to follow the ‘new normal.’ Before the COVID-19 crisis, companies generally needed one to three years to successfully introduce new digital services. However, the pandemic forced them to significantly speed-up these changes and digitalize business processes as soon as possible, since it often was a matter of saving the business.
Such haste might jeopardize the quality and reliability of new digital products and processes. And this is especially risky for identity verification, given that fraudsters don’t stand still either.
So, when it comes to verifying identity, it’s better to pay special attention to the reliability of verification technologies. Regula has over 30 years of experience in developing forensic devices and identity verification software. It allows the detection of document types and issuing countries automatically with a database of 11,000+ identity document types from 248 countries and territories in more than 138 languages.

And we are aware of the paramount importance of reliability and accuracy of identity verification.
