Data Essential for Identity: How next gen identity management may improve identity data

Identity
free session
Before identity can be data, the identity itself must be assured. Disparate data in anonymous systems can mean inaccurate identity resolution. To help assure greater identity integrity, the underlying architecture of an identity management system must be constructed in a manner conducive to the highest assurance possible that disparate identity data is creating an accurate "identity", especially when that identity is used proactively to establish a security risk or access to government services.
  • Identity data standards necessary for identity resolution

Smartphones and Artificial Intelligence: A new paradigm for remote identity proofing and document authentication

Identity
free session
Government agencies and commercial entities that rely on the services of identity providers within a digital identity ecosystem will require various levels of confidence in establishing the legitimacy of an individual’s identity. This is achieved via an identity proofing process which continues to rely on, among other attributes, government-issued documents as evidence of identity. The ability to remotely verify the authenticity of those physical documents is an important element in the resident’s digital identity on-boarding process. In this respect, a new paradigm is on the way.
  • Why physical documents are important in the context of digital identity
  • The role of highly secure Diffractive Optically Variable Image Devices (DOVIDs) in protecting documents
  • Remote verification of DOVIDs using smartphones and Artificial Intelligence?

Have you built a brick house ? Operational considerations of implementing Strong Authentication

Identity
free session
  • Data breaches are costly, disruptive and unfortunately, increasing.The majority of data breaches today are still caused by stolen login credentials.Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is generally recognised as a sound mitigation strategy to prevent phishing and man in the middle attacks.As the sophistication of attacks increases, traditional two-factor authentication techniques (2FA) are no longer adequate.
  • With FIDO2/WebAuthn standards for MFA, organisations can benefit from a frictionless user experience whilst strengthening security to prevent phishing and MitM attacks.The FIDO2/WebAuthn standards also pave the way for a future passwordless authentication experience.
  • Understand why a brick house keeps the attackers at bay.

ICT Adoption in NSW Local Government: Views from the Coalface

Local Government
free session
The rhetoric around ICT adoption in local government looms large: Smart cities, rumours of a lack of suppliers in the ERM space, and the vexatious nature of social media. But what is the experience of ICT professionals in the sector? We undertook ethics approved, anonymous in-depth interviews with 31 ICT professionals from a range of council types in NSW. We found that ICT adoptions in local governments are incredibly complex, with IT professionals having varying levels of experience in local government. New policy changes by other tiers of governments, organisational cultural factors, compliance obligations, the digital divide in the community, rapid changes in technology, the domination of ICT vendors and community engagement are some of the most apparent influences on ICT adoptions in councils. Most of all, ICT professionals want a seat at the strategy table, with only some allowed a chair.
