Reality of digital identity in Europe: regulations are shaping markets?

eID

 

Last year on July 1st the European direct electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market (eIDAS) came into effect. This ground breaking regulation seeks to harmonise the internal market for digital identity services, such that business and citizens can interact safely and freely with businesses and governments.

At the same time eIDAS was drafted in 2014, the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation (GLEIF) was set up by the Financial Stability Board in order to create better transparency of entities dealing with each other

In this keynote panel moderated by Douwe Lycklama of Innopay, Andrea Sevida of eIDAS and Gerard Hartsink of GLEIF will explain  how these developments affect the e-business  world and in particular the financial industry. Questions and angles include:

  • Can we re-use private authentication methods cross border in business and public interaction?
  • How does eIDAS facilitate remote cross border on boarding for financial services?
  • How will the penetration of digital identity increase?
  • How does LEI and eIDAS work together?
  • How does the General Data Protection Regulation impact the uptake of digital identity usage?
  • How will adoption of LEI and digital identities be stimulated?

From this panel practitioners will learn how they can put these important developments into action towards more seamless digital and cross border services.
