Our theme is “Managing Digital Identity in a Networked World”. Topics will include:
- How do we manage our identity information within and across multiple e-enabled relationships with friends, family, businesses, government agencies, NGOs, and community service providers?
- Have our concepts of personal identity and managing identity changed in the social networking era, with a quarter of a billion people using Facebook on any given day?
- Who ‘owns’ our digitised identity information and what are the challenges and opportunities around new forms of accessing, sharing, processing, storing or tracking identity information? How can we protect our identity information against current and future security threats?
- How could businesses and government agencies build and develop trusted, authentic relationships with their customers in an online environment?
- What could be considered ‘good’ governance arrangements of large digitised datasets in the public or private sector?
While New Zealand leads the world in a number of identity areas, we continue to learn from international experience and debate. We also cannot act alone. Finding solutions to many of the problems in the identity field rely on international agreement, standardisation and co-operation.
