One of the reasons that digital identity can be such a challenging topic to address is that we all swim in the sea of identity every day. We don’t think about what is really going in the transactions….and many different aspects of a transaction can all seem do be one thing. The early Identity Gang conversations focused a lot on figuring out what some core words meant and developed first shared understanding and then shared language to talk about these concepts in the community.
I’m writing this post now for a few reasons.
There is finally a conversation about taxonomy with the IDESG – (Yes! after over a year of being in existence it is finally happening (I recommended in my NSTIC NOI Response that it be one of the first things focused on)
Secondly I have been giving a 1/2 day and 1 day seminar about identity and personal data for several years now (You can hire me!). Recently I gave this seminar in New Zealand to top enterprise and government leaders working on identity projects 3 times in one week. We covered:
- The Persona and Context in Life
- The Spectrum of Identity
- What is Trust?
- A Field Guide to Internet Trust
- What is Personal Data
- Market Models for Personal Data
- Government Initiatives Globally in eID & Personal Data
