Exploring the Digital Identity Misconceptions
- TYPE: Combined Session DATE: Thursday, May 16, 2019 TIME: 17:00-18:00 LOCATION: AMMERSEE I
A perspective on the importance of understanding the needs of customers and users, and how the UK has broadened its national model as the social, economic, political and risk landscape has change markedly in the last 5 years. The UK government originally invested in the development of a digital identity initiative to enable citizens to prove their identity to log into government services. It has now broadened its strategy, its understanding of who its customers are, to focus on developing a digital identity that interoperates between the public and private sector, between the UK, Europe, and the reset of the world. Alastair will speak about how the UK has evolved its understanding of the value proposition for digital identity, from digital identity as a product, to digital identity as outcome based trust framework that requires collaboration across the UK economy.
Synopsis: Since the days of our early ancestors, new frontiers have always been associated with myths, be them dragons, demons or wizards. The world of digital identity is no different, our twitter timelines are full jargon, acronyms and confusing terminology. Much of this is helpful but once in a while a misinformed opinion can take root and spread around the world before the facts have had a chance to get their boots on.
This panel will debunk some common myths and misunderstandings. The panel will explore these misconceptions with reference to actual scenarios taken from their experiences delivering digital identity in the real world.
Delivery: A panel discussion hosted by an ID Crowd member - each panellist presents 5-10 minutes on a particular myth. The myths would be grouped into broad areas: Terminology, technologies, standards, schemes and regulations and service design - each panellist will chose a myth from one particular area to ensure a broad spectrum is covered, examples might include:
“Validation and Verification are the same thing”
“Standards based digital identity is too difficult to implement”
“Identity and Eligibility checks are the same thing for service designers”
Each myth is explored and debunked by a panellist in their own individual 10 minute presentation; each panellist could also use their presentation to link their own service or product to the subject matter. Each time this is presented new myths are busted, therefore keeping the concept fresh for a global audience
There is also an opportunity for a short roundup group discussion around the need for digital identity education and awareness
