COVID has Accelerated Public Demand for Digital ID
Sep 13, 2021

Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) research finds that three-quarters of Canadians feel that it’s important to have a secure, trusted, and privacy-enhancing digital ID to safely and securely make transactions online. As federal governments focus on post-pandemic recovery, investing in digital ID makes strong economic sense, especially for small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs). For SMEs, the impact of digital identity could be used to improve processes that are difficult today.

This is especially true in situations where businesses need to provide proof of identity to another business. Considering SMEs account for approximately 30 percent of Canada’s overall GDP ($450 billion), if we assume that the average SME could be just one percent more efficient with access to trusted digital identity, this results in a potential $4.5 billion of added value to SMEs and reinvestments in the Canadian economy. This presentation will provide a detailed overview of research performed over the course of 2 years to quantify public perception and demand for secure, interoperable, digital identity that works across the whole of the economy.

From top-down ecosystems to collaborative ones
Sep 14, 2021
Traditional identity and access management solutions built so far on the trust for selected identity providers and their adoption from an ecosystem of identity owners and identity verifiers. The decentralized identity paradigm is disrupting these ecosystems and required more democratic collaboration and competition among a number of identity and credential issuers, identity owners, and verifiers selecting and using them. This requires not only to design and implement new technologies but also to identify new business opportunities and business models. Collaboration, experimentation, and evaluation are the road to adoption, and the EU collaborative H2020 research and innovation framework offers the opportunity to de-risk such collaborations, in favor of innovation.
This talk will present the activities and lessons from three EU collaborations, CityExhcange, ENSURESEC and ORCHRESTRA, generating innovation with the adoption of decentralized identities for individuals, things, and organizations among complex stakeholders ecosystems in the smart energy, e-commerce, and smart transport domains.

Worlds Collide: The Importance of Convergence in IAM
Sep 14, 2021

Identity and privileged access management have existed in silos for decades. But cloud adoption and the rise in remote workers have introduced new vulnerabilities, and cybercriminals have noticed. As ransomware, breaches, and credential theft continue to make headlines, one thing is clear: We need to treat all access as privileged access and understand the context — and risk — of that access.

In this session, Chris Owen, Saviynt Director of Product Management, will discuss how identity worlds collide through Saviynt Enterprise Identity Cloud. He will show how this converged platform brings intelligence, visibility, and context together so you can manage the entire identity lifecycle, including governance, privileged access, application access, and third-party access.

Goodbye Dogmatism / Hellō Pragmatism
Sep 14, 2021

Disciples of decentralized identity have preached for years that DIDs are the only true path to giving users control over their identity, AKA self sovereign identity. The lack of widespread adoption is evidence that a more pragmatic approach is needed.

Hybrid cloud enablement: use cases, challenges, best practices
Sep 15, 2021

Cloud computing has become commonplace in recent years, it is almost inevitable for small to medium sized companies to leverage cloud services largely if not fully. However, it is not easy to run cloud enablement project in bigger and yet most importantly traditional companies, where there are hundreds of legacy applications, which expect data to be closer to the computing units, and which are dependent on bandwidth and reliable network availability. In this presentation, I am going to address cloud migration requirements, usual challenges, and lessons learnt and best practices from project management, security and service management point of view.

It takes a village...
Sep 15, 2021

As a byproduct of the current activity across industry, government, and regulatory sectors, digital identity leaders face unprecedented opportunities- and challenges.

Covid has accelerated the global imperative to establish a strong and safe global digital economy that is enabled by a secure, interoperable,  digital identity ecosystem.   One of the most daunting challenges is how, where and when to start. 

The reality is that the target global ecosystem will be years in the making despite the widely held view that better identity is crucial to achieving a trusted digital-first marketplace.  The fact is that the target state is the quintessential “it takes a village” challenge.  It is this speaker’s strongly held view that the leaders who move the market now will be best positioned to substantively shape the government, regulatory and legal frameworks that might otherwise hamper ecosystem growth.

The focus of this session is to speak to the market movers in the audience and provide food-for-thought in devising a strategy to move forward.  The ‘right’ strategy will attract global relying parties, identity service providers and the digitally-enabled consumer audience writ large (‘the village.’)  The global ecosystem will take time to evolve but the time to build the foundation is now.
