Whether or not we like it, the nature of the internet means that pretty much all of us have a digital identity of sorts, albeit one we don’t have direct control over. Digital identity initiatives are crystalizing with talk of a vaccine passport and digital medical cards, which many of us see as a positive development. We seem happy to have a validated identity for banking and crossing international borders and another just to capture Tesco points and air miles. But what if they are put together and the slightest transgression stalks our lives forever!
Is this scary or the natural progression of our greater use of the internet? You have a chance to ask our speakers.
