Virtual Event: Digital Identity

Understanding the policy practice and delivery of identity management in public sector

Tuesday 13 October 2021

Agenda Overview:

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

Traditionally, our identity systems have been largely 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, however, they also present many challenges. Addressing these 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 equip attendees with a solid understanding of the challenges in and around digital identities and offer ideas and solutions as to how to tackle these moving forward.
