UK’s Best Digital Identity Conference To Return

Delegate and sponsor demand for a quick follow-on to our successful June event means there will be a second ‘Think Digital Identity For Government 2019’ in December – so get your calendars out!

Posted 11 September 2019 by

It’s one of the biggest cliches in business: ‘back by popular demand’.

But this time, it really is the case… as delegate and exhibitor pressure has led us to schedule a second Think Digital Identity For Government ID conference this year.

With our date confirmed (Thursday, 5th December) and a chance to once again host at highly convenient Westminster venue One Great George Street, we now just needs one more thing: great attendees.

But given how we have spent the last two months working on the day’s agenda in close consultation with some of the key Digital Identity change-makers in both central government and industry, we’re pretty sure that, once again, we have conference content aligned with the real issues our sector faces.

So if you are a public sector Identity professional, or a leader working in Whitehall looking to make your ID choice as we get nearer to the end of direct support for GOV.UK Verify, or working for a vendor or consultancy helping clients in both the public and private sector get ready for the Digital Economy – we think we have something to help.

Indeed, the agenda has come straight from our on-going dialogue with ID thinkers at the heart of government, as you can see from sessions already timetabled for the day:

  • Transaction Monitoring – Actively monitoring a session for suspicious attributes or behaviour
  • Behavioural Risk – Building a picture of user behaviour over time to identify if a user does something out of character for them
  • You can’t improve what you don’t effectively measure

Other sessions will include a look at the highly complex topic of Citizen Authentication, while another will delve into the huge debate taking place in Digital ID circles on the pros and cons of Self-Sovereign Identity and its possible contribution to Digital Identity up-take in British society.

For Matt Stanley, Co-Founder of Think Digital Partners, the company organising the conference, “We are currently busy recruiting new speakers to share their insight on the day, but even this early we are delighted to be able to confirm many of our regular, extremely knowledgeable Identity experts will be taking part on the 5th of December, including:

Are you set for the next THINK Digital Government 2019, set for December 5th?

“We are also delighted to announce a new conference partner for this event, as Women In Identity will be working with us and one of its founders, Emma Lindley, will be presenting a session on the day about Diversity in Identity.”

The conference will be once again ably MC-ed by David Bicknell, Principal Analyst – Thematic Research at GlobalData and ex-Government Computing editor, while other confirmed speakers include senior decision makers from one of the biggest Departments in Whitehall and The Cabinet Office.

We hope you agree this will be a highly useful Digital Identity event – and that you can secure a day out of your busy schedule to come and join the debate on the 5th of December. 

Go here to secure your place to avoid disappointment, and, as ever with Think Digital Events, your seat is FREE if you are a public service professional.

Plus, be aware we have a great early bird price offer for private sector delegates, valid until the end of September… so don’t delay, and register today.

See you in December!
