Join our Cyber Talks Series "The Rise Of Digital Identity: What Are The Implications For Business, Government And Society?" to learn more about:

  • What are digital identities and what are common business use-cases
  • Benefits and risks of introducing digital identities at the business and social level
  • How to introduce digital identities in your business
  • How to manage digital identities in your business respecting data security and compliance


Join us for an in-depth exploration of the rapidly evolving world of digital identities and the massive change they bring to society, businesses, and the public government. In this interactive webinar, we will delve into multiple forms of digital identities, including personal identification (E-ID), self-sovereign identities, and the commercial use of personal data to customize products and services.

But tech adoption also brings dangers: we’ll tackle critical ethical and legal considerations, including issues of privacy, security, and data ownership. Additionally, we will discuss the impact of digital identities on the future of business, government, and society, including potential benefits such as increased access to services and improved identity verification, as well as potential risks such as increased surveillance and discrimination.

The hosts will bring heterogeneous perspectives from the fields of tech, anthropology, national security, and business to guarantee you a 360-degree, unbiased snapshot of the topic.
