Futures Panel

Six months ago, our Future of Identity Panel made its mark with a series of bold views about identity services. This time, another group of identity exponents will be encouraged to make the case for identity. Joining Julie will be other panellists including Dr Robin Pharoah, Director of Global Insight at Future Agenda and Robin Wilton, Technical Director of Outreach at the Internet Society.

About Julie Dawson:

Julie leads regulatory and government relations, steers our ethics framework development liaising closely with the Yoti Guardians Council, and prepares Yoti for external accreditations – such as ISO 27001, BCorps for ethics and transparency and the SOC2 security accreditation.

Yoti is an identity checking system that allows organisations to verify who people are, online and in person. We are a team of 250 based in London, with offices in Mumbai and later in 2018 opening in the US and Canada. We count over 3.9 million installs of the Yoti app, following our launch last November. For consumers, it’s an app that helps them prove who they are and confirm the identities of others. We distinguish ourselves with our approach to privacy and security, so the system has been architected so that it’s impossible for us to monetise users personal data.

Julie serves on the TechUK Public Sector Board, Digital Identity & Justice & Emergency Services Committee, the Association of Document Validation Professionals, the Home Office Identity Document Working Group, is industry Chair of the Digital Policy Alliance Age Verification & Internet Safety Steering Group, member of the Strategic Advisory Board of the EPSRC programme ‘INTUIT: Interaction Design for Trusted Sharing of Personal Health Data to Live Well with HIV’ and the EU SHERPA Stakeholder Board – looking at the combination of artificial intelligence and big data analytics and their impact on ethics and human rights issues.
