Conference Theme & Audience
The theme of the 2015 Identity Conference was Enabling Digital Identity and Privacy in a Connected World.
While New Zealand is considered as a world leader in the area of digital identity and privacy, we continue to learn from international experience and debate. We cannot act alone. Solutions for many of the problems in the digital identity field depend on international agreement, standardisation and co-operation.
The conference’s discussion topics included:
- How can we reap the benefits whilst minimising the risks of ‘datafication’ and data-driven innovation in the public, private and community sectors?
- Have our concepts of identity and privacy changed in the era of ‘big data’?
- How can we best protect fundamental values, such as privacy and safety, in an increasingly digitised and connected world? What are good practices of privacy- and security-by-design?
- How to achieve user-centric forms of managing identity within and across multiple digitally-enabled relationships, and what are the implications for service providers?
- How can service providers build and develop privacy-friendly, secure, trusted, transparent and inclusive digital relationships with their customers?
- How can we protect our identity information against current and future cyber security threats in a resilient way?
