What Role Should and Does Government Play in the ID & AUTH Ecosystem Evolution?

I had an amazing time organizing the MEF CONNECTS ID & AUTH: The Dawn of Personal Data & Identity hybrid event. It was such a joy working with all 38 speakers for the event. I also really enjoyed participating in the event as well.


Here is one of the five sessions I participated in at the event, and below is the session abstract.

In this session, we delve into the crucial role of government in the evolution of identity and authentication. We explore a range of interconnected concepts, including legislation, policy governance, regulation, public trust, inclusion, equity, equality, security, and technology. The focus is on understanding what governments can and should be doing in these areas and how the answers to these questions may vary across countries and contexts. By comparing and contrasting different approaches, we gain valuable insights into the potential impact of government actions on shaping the future of identity and authentication.
