IDentity.Next 2012 - Making (y)our business of Digital IDentity
IDentity.Next is the European (un)-conference built around the true key issues of digital identity of both private and public organisations. It is the ID user’s leading network and knowledge sharing event.
Our daily lives result in a lot of digital footprints all over the world. Whose are those footprints? Do we have any say in who can access our data? Steps must be taken to regulate access to our data and to facilitate access to data about one’s self. If an individual tris try to revoke his data sometime, then he will understand whet this is all about. This track is about ownership of and access to data and covers developments like Open and big Data.
Identity information is part of the crown jewels of many organisations. But migrating to cloud environments means that there will be other parties involved. Can they be trusted? What processes change in order to make this possible? Is your organisation still compliant? How can onegovern what’s far away? Will technique facilitate this migration?
The 2012 program will be content rich and feature a mix of presentations and panel discussions where existing and emerging developments related to the digital identity provide the background for un- conference, workshops, discussions and debates.
At IDentity.Next (inter)national experts and key players in the world of Digital IDentity will address the most relevant issues in the fields of convenience, mobility, privacy, security and much more - informing a high qualified audience on the evolution of the digital identity upon which future developments will be built. Over the different tracks of the event, catalysed networking opportunities will bring together experts and professionals from the industry, government representatives, innovators and (pioneering) end-users. The active participation in the un-conference during IDentity.Next offers opportunities of interaction, dissemination of knowledge and sharing experience with your peers.
Areas of interest for the IDentity.Next’12 include, but are not limited to, the following themes:
- Social consumer - The developments of the social consumer identity and its personal datastore are rapid. Consumers would like to be in control of their (personal) data and identity and are looking for (social) ) tools to turn around the current value chain of e.g. online retail.
- MobileMe - Our smartphone is increasingly turning our old PCs legacy into devices, and is expecting to make coins obsolete by becoming our mobile wallet. It has become our very personal device which provides personalized apps for just about anything, and is our gateway to our social network. Our smartphone is therefore central to our digital identity, and has to provide a secure, trusted and user-friendly experience. Combining with the ability to bring your own device (BYOD) and collect wanted and unwanted privacy-sensitive information, there are both plenty of challenges and opportunities in making our digital identity mobile.
- Private Eye - Privacy is not clear cut information, anymore. Differences in perceptions of information are evident between social networks, online stores and government. It is therefore becoming a domain related concept. It seems that some services collect information on some of those domains or stored in the cloud, and know more about a person that the person knows about themselves.
- eCitizen - Who will provide the citizen with their digital identity and its personal information? Early initiatives pointed to a central role of government itself in the control and provision of public and private digital identity. Nevertheless approaches are diverging. Some governments choose to seize identity, others to radically defer it to the market, while any scenario has to deal with the citizen’s own demand for control and usability.
A preliminary agenda for the event may be found here.
The Call for Presenters is open until the 12 July 2012.
