OIX’s Identity Trust Conference will place much needed focus on the needs of organisations that will have to rely on digital ID
UK, 08 September 2022 – Digital ID is here and evolving rapidly towards global adoption. All organisations, particularly those operating in finance, property (rental, buying and selling), pensions, age verification, employment vetting, travel and education, should get ready to reap the benefits of trust framework assured digital IDs.
But are they getting what they need from the UK trust framework, trust schemes and identity service providers that are also moving quickly to make it possible? What needs to be addressed for these organisations before mass adoption among them can truly be possible?
The Identity Trust Conference 2022 is the only conference focused exclusively on providing clarity for those organisations seeking answers to these questions.
The conference agenda will include a vital panel session bringing together an esteemed selection of ‘relying parties’ - those organisations that will soon be able to accept trust framework assured digital IDs. With representatives from the property, finance and pensions sectors, the panel session will provide a valuable and thought-provoking discussion on the progress that has been made over the last 12 months.
Moderated by journalist Frank Hersey from Biometric Update, the ‘What are we waiting for?’ panel session will take a deep dive into the areas that have progressed well, as well as the specific challenges that have yet to be addressed. The panel session will be a highly relevant discussion placing a spotlight on what, from the perspective of the relying parties, needs to happen in order for digital ID to finally be adopted.
Speakers will include Timothy Douglas from Propertymark, Dan Hobbs from SS&C and one other to be confirmed.
The conference will conclude with another vital panel discussion among major industry influencers and stakeholders from the identity eco-system. Moderated again by journalist Frank Hersey, contributors will include Mark Little, OIX board member, George Muscat from the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Tony Allen from Age Check Certification Scheme (ACCS) and Mark Sugden from the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).
This final ‘How are we making it happen?’ panel will reflect on the specific concerns raised in the previous panel discussion, and provide details of how their requirements are being addressed.
Nick Mothershaw, Chief Identity Strategist at OIX, said: “Digital ID promises to be a game changer in establishing and maintaining trust. But the organisations that are at the end of this process and that will rely on digital ID the most, need to have confidence that their requirements will be addressed.
“Our work with major stakeholders – the UK trust framework, trust schemes and identity service providers - as well as influencers in the eco-system, is helping relying parties get the resources and support they need. The forthcoming conference is key part of that work.”
This year, the Identity Trust Conference will be sponsored by VISA, Sopra Steria, Digidentity and OneSpan, and is being held in media partnership with Biometric Update. It will take place on Thursday 29th September 2022 at the QEll Centre in London, UK. The cost to attend the conference is £99 plus VAT. You can register HERE.
