Shaping the Future of Payments and IdentityJason Bohrer of Secure Technology Alliance Discusses 2021 Road Map
Identity management will be at the forefront of securing remote work in the coming year. Jason Bohrer, new executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance and the U.S. Payments Forum, describes key initiatives as he steps into this role.
Following 18 years at the Secure Technology Alliance and the U.S. Payments Forum, Randy Vanderhoof is retiring, and Bohrer is taking on his role.
Both organizations have gone through significant changes as the U.S. has transitioned to EMV payment card infrastructure over the past decade. While the transition has largely been completed at a physical retail level, Bohrer says there is considerable work still to be done in other areas, such as e-commerce and digital identity management for government agencies.
"When you look at the government space specifically, the majority of the conversation over the last 10 to 15 years has been focused around federal identity, but there's an equal, if not greater, opportunity at the state and local level," says Bohrer. "One of the areas of focus as we look ahead over the next couple of months is mobile driver's licenses. We've got 17 different states across the U.S. in a pilot phase around mobile driver's licenses."
In a podcast with Information Security Media Group, Bohrer discusses:
- The aims and objectives of the Secure Technology Alliance and the U.S. Payments Forum for 2021;
- Key focus areas in digital identity management;
- His new role as the executive director.
Bohrer is the executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance and the U.S. Payments Forum. He has 27 years of executive leadership experience in sales, operations and managed services. His impressive record of achievements spans payments, access control and identity management at CPI Card Group, HID Global and Motorola.
