TechnologyBreakout1Workshop

Who goes there? It’s a question as old as time that is asked at the beginning of most transactions. In order for people and organizations to do business they must first ask – Who are you? How can I trust you?

Digital identity is becoming the most important challenge to solve at the intersection of people, process, and technology. Ask people about digital identity and they might think of a password and user ID to access services. But it’s much more. Digital identity is the digital representation of you – the Facebook you, Twitter you, and Google you.

Why is digital identity challenging? Perhaps because digital identity must intertwine with existing and evolving governance and cultural norms. Notions of privacy and sharing can vary greatly from person to person and from culture to culture.

This workshop explores what it means to be you in the digital world. We’ll uncover the forces and influences that impact the digital you – for better or for worse. Attendees will gain introductory insights about how digital identities and digital relationships connect and interact within a society. Join us to learn how Canada will advance digital identity for the socio-economic good of all.
