THINK DIGITAL IDENTITY FOR GOVERNMENT - 21st MAY 2021
A government identity leader will discuss the current state of play with public sector digital identity, how COVID19 has impacted the technology and the future plans (if any) for Verify.
What is Digital Identity? How can Digital Identity be leveraged by government to remove online friction for trusted, genuine citizens, all while keeping increasingly sophisticated fraudsters out?
Join Richard Helliar, Director of Digital Identity and Fraud at LexisNexis® Risk Solutions, to understand how Digital Identity can solve real-life problems, build trust and help create a wall of protection around UK citizens and the government services they access.
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?
Fighting Identity Fraud with Biometrics: How the UK, US, Australian and Singapore governments are using online face verification to deliver digital services.
From tax returns to immigration to digital identity programs, public sector agencies around the world are moving secure services online thanks to face verification. Aarti Samani, SVP Product and Marketing at iProov, will explain how the latest technology is changing the way that citizens can access services online, with security, convenience, inclusivity and respect for privacy. The session will cover:
- Why face biometrics is the right authentication method for digital government
- The digital threat landscape: what’s happening today and what’s coming
- Case studies in how governments around the world are using the latest technology to accelerate their digital transformation programs
A discussion led by Kirsty Innes, Head of Digital Government at The Tony Blair Institute for Change. This session aims to set Digital ID in the broader context of efforts to drive government digital transformation, and examine how the pandemic has accelerated and hindered progress.
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.
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.
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.
2020 pushed the notion of trust to the forefront of all our lives. It forced many organisations to overcome long-standing reservations around trusting their employees to work from home and to place their faith in digital channels to serve the community. Join Ian Lowe, Director of Solutions Marketing at Okta, who will share his views on Digital Trust and address the key questions below:
- What is the quickest route to building and enhancing productivity, loyalty and engagement?
- What can government organisations be doing to build digital trust?
- What role do security tools and policies play in building digital trust?
