    Over 1.5 billion people globally lack the ability to prove their identities. SDG 16.9 aims to “provide legal identity to all, including birth registration, by 2030.” Hear experts from the frontlines of building technology solutions to enable identity for all. How can these systems leapfrog traditional paper-based approaches and build strong and efficient identification systems at a scale not previously achievable? What role do private public partnerships play in the solution?

    The current model of digital identity has become unsustainable as individuals, businesses and governments all weigh in on who owns and controls customer-identity data. A shift from intermediary- or provider controlled to user-controlled or self-sovereign digital identity is underway. A self sovereign identity model would benefit consumers, who could better control the use and sharing of their data, while enshrining the “right to be forgotten.” Such a model would help solve the challenges of identity breaches and fraud for businesses by putting the onus of privacy control back on the consumer or intermediary identity broker.

    As the identity industry has grown it has become more valuable to all stakeholders: our customers, our enterprises, and our employees. With this growth identity professionals have become more valuable as well, and we have recognized this increase in value by starting to professionalize our industry. Attackers, too, have noticed identity’s increased value, specifically the value of identity systems, and have begun turning identity systems meant to deliver value into weapons used to cause harms both large and small. In this talk, you will learn about: • The state of professionalizing the identity industry • How attackers weaponize identity management systems • A maturity model for de-weaponizing those systems • What you should next to protect your customers, partners, and fellow workers As identity professionals it is our obligation to protect our systems. Our peers in security have made great strides in data protection, but it is time we take steps specifically designed to protect our identity systems; come learn what those next steps are.

    Synthetic identity theft – the creation of bogus identities based on a combination of real data, such as SSNs, and fabricated information – is growing exponentially. Fraudsters have grown increasingly sophisticated in creating and nurturing these identities – in 2013, just 18 people were charged with creating over 7,000 fake identities and using them to spend over $200 million. The absence of a 'victim' in many cases means that these synthetic identities can go undetected for years. This panel will discuss potential solutions for reducing the synthetic identity epidemic and practical implications for businesses.
