Virtual Event: Digital Identity

Understanding the Policy, Practice and Delivery of Identity Management in the Public Sector

Thursday, November 12, 2020
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

As we continue to see technology impacting the way we live and work, there is a growing expectancy for citizens to have access to a safe digital identity.

Traditionally, our identity systems have largely been based on physicality. However, with technology evolving at such a pace and many of the transactions that require ID are conducted digitally, governments worldwide are looking for strong and trustworthy digital identity systems that are secure, reliable, and cost-effective.

Such bold transformations bring about many opportunities. Addressing questions early on will ensure government departments are on track to keep up with the changes in the way we manage, share, and express our identity.

Public Sector Network’s virtual Digital Identity event will bring together experts in the space to help advance those conversations.
