This event and many others focus on best practice and how things should work in an ideal world but what happens when things go wrong. This session considers how we repair bad identity situations, maintenance, liability and what to do when identities are compromised.
Securing digital Identities is a hot topic across UK Government, but, government departments tend to think of this from the perspective of citizen access to services. The “Citizen Access” approach is critically important for the provision of services but equally important is the work of the civil service and its partners in the delivery of multi-channel services to citizens.
With over 450,000 full time equivalent civil servants; thousands of contractors and service providers all providing critical services, we explore how the management of employee and non-employee digital identities has become a ‘must have’ for UK government departments and how managing identities helps to drive security, efficiency and service improvement across government.
This session covers off some interesting initiatives across private sector identity projects and reflects on approaches that can be adapted for the public sector.
Whilst the UK Government works on building its One Login offering, the Australian government have their own similar and successful version in place.

The eIDAS 2.0 Regulation is closing to the final station of the legislative train before entering into force, and in this context is of paramount importance to understand the changes in the EU digital identity framework, what is the impact on public services and on different industries (financial, utilities, insurance). How the EU Digital Identity Wallet could be implemented and by whom, what is the status of different implementations across Member States? How to shape the technology in a way that supports and assures our freedom and fundamental rights as citizens in the digital space?
Dr Sarah Walton shares details of the ‘ID Code of Conduct,’ a project set up by Women in Identity to support Digital ID design teams to create more inclusive global solutions. Dr Walton explains what the aims of the project are and why inclusivity is so important – and has the potential to contribution to increased economic growth as well as social, digital and financial inclusion. She will also highlight how it will provide a set of guiding principles as a framework to those designing digital identity systems.
