How to deliver secure digital identity for the benefit of all stakeholders

Establishing a verified digital identity is crucial to successful business collaboration and customer engagement in the digital economy. Verifiable Credentials provide a highly secure way of establishing digital identity. However, knowing exactly how to begin using this approach can be challenging.

Join experts from KuppingerCole Analysts, Microsoft, and Microsoft partners Onfido, IDEMIA, and LexisNexis Risk Solutions for a discussion about the importance of open standards for identity, how verifiable credentials bring value to individuals and organizations, and how they can enable additional ID checks, prevent identity fraud, and support Zero Trust and Digital Transformation.

Expert insights and best practices for verifying digital identities

Anne Bailey, Senior Analyst at KuppingerCole will outline the problem of establishing verified digital identity, explain how verifiable credentials address this problem, discuss the most compelling use cases for verifiable credentials and flag up potential challenges.

Anne will be joined by Ed Ackerman of Onfido, Jonathan Distler of IDEMIA, Ankur Patel, Principal Program Manager, Digital Identity at Microsoft and Chris Schnieper of LexisNexis Risk Solutions. They will discuss the value of providing employees with credentials based on open standards and how Azure AD and identity verification providers can work together to provide an easier, faster, safer process.
