Nordea to use biometrics to protect customer data assets

Nordea is implementing biometric authentication from Veridium for employees handling confidential customer data.

Nordea has contracted to deploy the VeridiumID platform, 4 Fingers TouchlessID and VeridiumAD, to replace tokens with biometrics for the protection of high-privileged access to confidential data.

The initiative is part of an enterprise-wide strategy by the bank to improve how employees access data and accounts while meeting new regulatory compliance demands.

James Stickland, CEO, Veridium, says: “Maintaining customer, employee and company data is critical for all organizations – but especially those in the financial industry. With Veridium, Nordea will be able to take its first steps in advancing security for high privilege access and GDPR compliance.”
