Government Keynote

A senior government official will discuss the current state of play of digital identity for the whole economy and plans for future policy development of digital identity across the public sector as a whole. 

Questions and answers on the UK Government Trust Framework

The UK Government’s published the Trust Framework guidelines in 2021, to sets out a path that guides the principles, policies, procedures and standards in the use of digital identity when transacting with government services. This session will explore the details of the Trust Framework in the context of citizen identity requirements for the 2020s and beyond. The panel will look at the likelihood of acceptance of the rules of the Trust Framework road for both citizens and vendors. Is the Trust Framework a less prescriptive approach than Verify and can it, therefore, offer a citizen ID that will work for all stakeholders?  And, could the consistency baked into the framework be its Achilles Heel?

Have your questions ready for the panel.

Identity in Action – LexisNexis® Risk Solutions

We speak with a member of the LexisNexis ® Risk Solutions team about their expertise in fighting fraud in both the private and public sectors.

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?

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.
