Authenticated Digital Identity and Consent for the Insurance Industry

SecureKey and Prodigy are pleased to invite you to our special event on October 10th in Toronto

A first-of-its-kind digital transformation opportunity for insurers

Trust means many things in the insurance industry. It’s the bedrock of an accurate and confident insurance contract, and it’s also the foundation of the relationship between you, your customers and partners. The absence of trust, however, also carries many meanings. Without trust in the risk profile you’re insuring, you’re simply gambling. Without trust in you, good customers are going elsewhere. Trust is just as important in service delivery as it is for customer acquisition.

What impact would a service that promotes and streamlines the insurance industry’s journey to trust have? Imagine getting specific consent from your customers, knowing that their data has been verified in real-time. Imagine being able to make the claim that you are putting the desires of your customers, and of the government, for privacy and personal data control at the center of your value proposition. Imagine being able to provide data to your customers and service providers, with greater confidence in the validity of their digital identities. Imagine being able to get to trust faster and with higher levels of privacy, security, safety and assurance.

Verified.Me is a first-of-its-kind blockchain-based digital identity network that helps customers verify their identities online with services of their choice – and helps insurance providers streamline and transform many identity-based processes to attain greater confidence in customer data, identity and needs. Sun Life Financial has already joined the service, with new insurance network participants anticipated to join in the future.

Stop imagining, and come see what the future of the insurance industry holds. Join SecureKey and the Prodigy Labs team on October 10th at 2PM in Toronto at The One Eighty to discuss how Verified.Me’s introduction will revolutionize insurance.

Join us at the event!


“The launch of Verified.Me is an exciting step towards making it easier for our Clients to do business with us, and ensuring that their access to Sun Life services is safe and secure. To be able to bring this to market and provide Canadians with more control over their digital identities speaks to the importance of industry partnerships and collaboration to spark innovation.” – Mark Saunders, EVP and CIO, Sun Life Financial.
