Our regular chairman, David Bicknell, welcomes all delegates, sponsors, and speakers to our conference and sets out the day’s agenda.
The conference begins with an analyst keynote from a representative on one of the UK’s leading analyst firms. Insight and commentary on the current state of play of the UK digital identity sector, with particular focus on the developing situations within the public sector.
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.
The UK Gov Verify scheme has had a mixed response with a number of the original IDPs pulling out in 2018. Verify looks set to be eventually deprecated, but UK citizens still need a way to engage and transact with government in an assured way. This session will look at a new scheme which places attributes at the centre of this with the Identity and Attributes Exchange (IAX). This scheme, whilst not Verify, may offer the way forward in C2G interactions.
This session will discuss what next for Verify and will IAX solve the UK government’s need for a seamless, usable, secure, citizen identity?
This session focuses on the challenges faced by one of the large central government department with one of the biggest battles against fraud. We highlight some of the success stories, and some new and also future concerns coming to light during 2020.
We speak with Andrew Bud CBE, Founder and CEO of the innovative and successful Identity provider iProov to discuss tackling fraud and some of the challenges ahead that face the public sector specifically.
A discussion led by Max Beverton-Palmer, Head of Technology and Society at The Tony Blair Institute for Change.
We speak with a leading figure from the identity supplier community to discuss industry wide issues such as innovation, collaboration, and some of the challenges ahead facing the public sector specifically.
At our virtual conference in November 2020, we presented the findings of our Local Authority Digital Identity Survey, which gave some great insight into the current situations across multiple councils and local government organisations across the UK. Jessica Figueras will give an update on some of the work we have done in this space during 2021 and discuss some of the opportunities for local. authorities to move forwards with their various digital identity projects.
According to the “Crowe Report 2019” in the UK, fraud losses are around £130 billion per year. To mitigate fraud, financial transactions come under the scrutiny of regulations. The UK, a member of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), has a robust framework of such regulations. On 10th January 2020, the U.K. revised its anti-money laundering and counter terrorist financing regime in line with the fifth Anti-Money Laundering (5AML).
This session looks at how regulations such as 5AML affect government bodies when performing financial transactions with citizens.
This session focuses on a case study, highlighting the fight against identity fraud.
The second version of the EU regulation Payment Services Directive (PSD2) requires that banks made financial data available under customer direction. The result is Open Banking. Open Banking can deliver financial data, on request, and under user consent, to services. This can be used to give government services assurance that a citizen is legitimate by sharing bank checked data. It can also be used to facilitate payments.
This session will look at where Open Banking can be used in government services. It will also debate the pros and cons of Open Banking in a government context.
This regular session look at examples of best digital identity practice, experience and learnings from identity experts across Europe and beyond. Normally we hear from global suppliers and industry experts, but for this conference we will be hearing from Identity professionals from various governments around the world to learn about their various experiences and enable us to get a wider perspective on the important identity issues for governments across the globe.
We close with our regular panel session discussing what tomorrow’s identity sector might look like.
Our chair, David Bicknell, summarises some of the of the sessions that you have heard this morning and that you can still view a breakout session with one of our supplier partners.
