Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

GLMS has announced it has elected Lori Sullivan, Executive VP and COO at Canada’s Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG), to its Executive Committee. Sullivan has been elected to the executive committee following the resignation of Sami Kauhanen from his post at Finland’s Veikkhaus at the end of August 2020.

Lori has served in a senior capacity in the lottery and gaming industry for almost a decade. As Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at OLG, she is currently responsible for the business performance of OLG lines of business including sports betting, which uphold high standards of game integrity, regulatory compliance, player protection, responsible gambling and social responsibility. Before joining OLG, Lori was a partner at the law firm Davies, Ward, Phillips & Vineberg LLP as a corporate transactional attorney.

“I am pleased to be able to support the efforts of GMLS to promote and ensure the integrity of worldwide sports betting,” Lori Sullivan said.

“I am really delighted to welcome Lori on our GLMS Executive Committee. She brings to GLMS tremendous experience not only as a prominent North American Lottery Executive but also as the former OLG General Counsel. She is currently responsible for the business performance of OLG’s lines of business including sports betting which upholds high standards of game integrity, regulatory compliance, player protection, responsible gambling and social responsibility. I am confident that Lori will enhance the profile and awareness of GLMS among North American industry partners, stakeholders, regulators, policy makers, sport organizations and law enforcement agencies. It is one of our strategic priorities to acquire new members in North America, as many States and Provinces are regulating sports betting and there is a need to advocate and educate legislators and policy makers on best practices for creating and implementing effective integrity measures for a responsible and sustainable betting market environment,” Ludovico Calvi, president of GLMS, said.

HooYu Launches Re-usable Digital Identity Ecosystem

HooYu, the leading KYC and customer onboarding journey specialist, has released a digital identity service that provides customers with a re-usable digital ID to instantly complete age or identity verification processes.

HooYu ID stores verified identity credentials in an app on a user’s smartphone and the validated identity evidence is encrypted on the device and protected by biometric and PIN code access. The user’s identity details are stored cryptographically on the app, which HooYu cannot access. Firms that need to check identity for age verification or financial crime purposes are issued with an identity report and certified evidence when the user grants permission via the app.

As part of the product launch, HooYu has released a report examining consumer attitudes towards identity checking processes. In a pool of over 2000 respondents, 74% of the public said they were frustrated at having to repeatedly provide personal information to pass identity check processes. 89% of the public said that they found the idea of a re-usable digital identity facility appealing. Consumers cited frustration with repeated, time-consuming processes and concerns of being in control of who receives their personal information as reasons for embracing digital identity.

“Some of our clients asked us about building a digital identity for their users to port between their portfolio brands, for example, large banking groups or multi-brand online gambling operators. Other clients such as mortgage lenders or law firms want us to join the dots for house buying and selling journeys where the user is asked to prove their identity to four different parties as part of one transaction,” David Pope, Marketing Director at HooYu, said.

This new service comes as the UK government prepares to launch a digital identity trust framework and subsequent regulation that will encourage UK consumers to build and manage their own digital identity.

“The last twelve months have proved formative as government, industry and identity providers have coalesced around a set of standards in interoperable re-usable digital identity and we welcome identity providers such as HooYu as members of OIX, as together we help make digital identity a reality,” Nick Mothershaw, CEO of the Open Identity Exchange, said.

“Our approach to digital identity puts the user in control of their identity and is designed with security and privacy in mind. At the same time, relying parties that need to perform KYC on their users can rely on HooYu ID and the tried and tested range of KYC services that HooYu already performs for some of the biggest banks in the UK,” Gareth Narinesingh, Head of Digital Identity at HooYu, said.
