Identity Week Asia Day 2 @ 09:10

Improving citizen experience with digital identity

Australia is transforming the way citizens access government services. There are some common things people find frustrating, such as having to go into an office to access services or being asked to provide the same information to different agencies.We can only go so far in improving these experiences without a robust and re-usable digital identity, that helps people to prove who they are online, protects their privacy and ensures their identity information is kept safe.The Digital Transformation Agency is working across government and industry to build a federated digital identity ecosystem connect to a range of services. Jonathan will discuss how this is being rolled out,and the opportunities to improve service delivery while protecting privacy and security.
