Using attributes to make citizen identity a reality

Are attributes a central component of a citizen identity platform, and if so, how are they best incorporated into that platform. Within this, we will consider what part decentralised identity plays in an attribute-centric citizen identity platform?

Becoming Future Fraud Ready: Applying a new mindset to responding to digital ID fraud

As with every advance in technology, the expanding use of digital identities in government services will open up opportunities for fraud. Current approaches to assessing fraud risk tend to focus on what has happened in the past rather than what could happen in the future. We need a new way of thinking about fraud. One that accounts for an increasingly connected society and rapidly advancing technology.

In this talk Jackie Morley, Accenture’s Fraud, Risk and Compliance Strategy Lead, will explore the evolving landscape of fraud globally and suggest a new approach to assessing and mitigating risks, including a worked example of the approach in action.

LUNCHTIME COMFORT BREAK

How could digital identities combat identity fraud?

Fraud has reached epidemic levels in the UK, and we need to do something about it. Cifas research has found three in every five cases of fraudulent conduct filed to the National Fraud Database relate to identity fraud, the vast majority involve criminals impersonating innocent victims in order to set up new accounts and facilities. This not only impacts the organisation being targeted, but also the victim left in fear as to what else may be done in their name.

Join Sandra Peaston, Director of Research and Development at Cifas, as she discusses the trends and enablers of identity fraud, explores the potential impact of digital identities, and outlines the standards for digital identity schemes recommended in the OIX fraud controls guide co-authored by Cifas.
