And this is no small feat. Our ambition is to enable a secure and trusted environment for citizens and consumers alike to perform their daily critical activities (such as pay, connect, travel or access public or private spaces), in the real as well as digital worlds. Today, information travels rapidly around the digitized space, defying boundaries and breaking the traditional codes of security. Our goal is to provide end-to-end solutions enabling convenience and a frictionless experience whenever and wherever security matters.
Being a leader means staying on top of the disruptive innovations that impact our security landscape. We understand the need to secure people in both their physical and digital worlds, especially as connectivity growth will keep fostering more and more digital services.
We know that in our globalized society, the number of peer-to-peer exchanges, travel and border crossings are exploding. We are aware that the digitalization of the economy brings about a wave of new business models and opportunities to reinvent the customer journey where data, security and privacy have an essential role to play. We are also mindful of the consumerization of technology and how it impacts our identity and private life.
I am proud to head a company whose purpose, since its creation, is to make the world a safer place, whenever and wherever Identity & Security matter in an increasingly digital world. IDEMIA has an extremely motivated team of 15,000 employees worldwide, committed to serve our enterprises and government customers in a reliable, ethical and sustainable manner. With our reinvented concept of identity and our cutting-edge technologies we envision a better future for consumers and citizens alike.Pierre Barrial - President & CEO

Major trends are impacting our world: the explosion in demand for security in both the private and public sectors, the migration from the physical to an increasingly digital world and the demand for convenient, contactless user experiences. In the face of these trends, IDEMIA stands for Augmented Identity and envisions a world where everyone has an identity and can prove it, in total privacy, wherever and whenever identity and security matter.
