Trulioo, the leading global identity verification provider, is delighted to announce that its CEO and founder, Stephen Ufford, has been named Industry Leader of the Year at the KNOW Identity Conference 2018, hosted by OWI.
The Industry Leader of the Year award is presented to the person who made the greatest impact on the identity community through academic, business or thought-leadership contributions.
In its second year, the KNOW Identity Conference provided a forum for industry experts across all industries to be at the nexus of ideas and policies that will fundamentally change identity around the world. Attendees dove into critical topics such as government policy, blockchain, cybersecurity, identity access management, trust and safety, fraud prevention and identity verification.

“Over the past year, Stephen has effectively leveled up the entire community through his thought leadership and business contributions, specifically in mobile identity and KYB compliance,” said Travis Jarae, founder and CEO of OWI.
