The Future of Digital Identity Across Government & The Public Sector

About this webinar

The shift towards Digital Identities is happening.

Public sector organisations are starting to realise the invaluable opportunities brought by Digital Identities, but are also wary of the challenges. In September 2021, the UK Government announced plans for a new digital identity system with a budget of up to £400 million, pending review. The new system will enable users to verify their identity to access all Gov.UK services digitally, with one single sign-on. Whist it’s argued that the Government’s approach to digital identity has been poorly executed in the past, going forward, the vision is to create a simple, secure, and accessible system.

Brought to you by GovNews & experts in digital identity, Auth0, this integral online learning exchange will explore the challenges and the opportunities to transforming your organisation’s approach to digital identities. We will explore the themes of enhancing citizen trust, management of ethical data, the renewed focus of government around identity and access management, as well as the need for integrated and streamlined digital services.

The Future of Digital Identity Across Government & The Public Sector will be facilitated by Mark Blanchard (Public Sector Director of GovNewsDirect) and will feature:

  • Jon Nash, Fellow at Demos
  • Steve Warburton, Shared Channels Experience Doctorate & Deputy Director Identity and Trust Services, DWP
  • Donna Joyce, Public Sector Account Director, Auth0

As part of this debate, we will be talking about overcoming common obstacles relating to digital accessibility, security and the user experience.
