The Identity Conference is returning for 2019.

Identity Conference 2019 – Identity as taonga: now and in the future – is a not-to-be-missed event for people in business, government, academia and the communications media who recognise the importance of keeping up with changes in the way we manage, share and express our identity.

Increasingly central to this is digital identity, and how we use digital identity to engage with government and business and how we need to safeguard it from misrepresentation, misunderstanding or theft. The big idea is to look at the identity-related problems of today and the solutions of tomorrow.

Identity Conference 2019 is hosted by Victoria University of Wellington, the Department of Internal Affairs – Te Tari Taiwhenua, the Office of the Privacy Commissioner, and Digital Identity New Zealand. It is the fourth in a series of conferences that began in 2008.

This year’s two-day conference is at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, on 26 and 27 August 2019.

Keynote speakers include the clinical psychologist, author and commentator Nigel Latta, technology and privacy journalist Kashmir Hill, Privacy Commissioner John Edwards, Chief Archivist Richard Foy, demographer Prof Tahu Kukutai, and ID Care managing director Prof David Lacey.
