03 Sep 2014

The summary report from the Global Uncertainties Policy Seminar into Identity Management (IM): Future Threats and Opportunities is now available.

The seminar, held at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) in London on Monday 9 June 2014, brought together more than 60 delegates from government, academia and civil society to better understand conflicting public responses to Identity Management.

Identity Management, whilst enhancing security and efficiency across public and private sectors, has led to widespread concern over data privacy.  Across the world, citizens regularly take issue with government and company ownership of personal data while sharing personal information on social networking websites.

The Policy Seminar highlighted findings from our project, examining public and professional expectations surrounding Identity Management.  It was also an opportunity to collect feedback on the project output and to generate forward-looking research insights.

The summary report captures discussions and key insights from the seminar.  It highlights that the future use of IM technologies have substantial policy implications, and government and industry need to take into account the user when formulating policy and creating technology.
