SECURE ACCESS FOR A CONNECTED WORLD

Todays digital world has become more complex and there are countless interactions between people, machines, and apps – and its growing. IAM systems are under strain to manage new digital initiatives and deal with threats. Before digital explosion you could control access with the right “gates”, but now the digital estate is growing and changing too quickly. We need secure access for every interaction, human and non-human, which requires a solution that is comprehensive and connected.

Ilana Smith

Ilana Smith and Brandon Murdoch from Microsoft UK will share insight into the creation of a trusted identity fabric that can serve the entire digital estate now and into the future. This will provide a safe entryway, not a gateway restricting access, which will help you verify all identities and secure, manage, and govern access to any resource.

UK DIGITAL IDENTITY AND ATTRIBUTES TRUST FRAMEWORK UPDATE

George Muscat

George Muscat, DCMS’ Policy Lead for development of the UK Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework will be looking at a set of rules including roles, policies, procedures and standards governing the use of digital identity. George will be speaking on the government’s progress on the trust framework after working closely with stakeholders to test and receive feedback on the alpha update iteration of the trust framework over the last year. He will also set out the government’s vision for the role the trust framework will play in the digital identity ecosystem – to help organisations check identities and share attributes in a trusted and consistent way, enabling interoperability and increasing public confidence.
