Deconstructing Digital Identity and Digital Rights

Tuesday, June 22
8:30am - 9:20am MDT

The pandemic has accelerated the development and deployment of digital identity solutions, many of which rely on the use of sensitive personal data, biometrics, or new and experimental technology. In the current emergency environment some adoptions are streamlined for immediate usage without significant public inputs. Even as privacy and data protection by design norms and standards are growing in popularity, many of these solutions are being designed and implemented without sufficient consideration for the longer term impacts on interoperability, standards, protections, or other equities at stake in the broader context of how the digital ID solution is engaged post-pandemic. This panel will examine some of the solutions being deployed in various contexts around the world, and consider the long term challenges as well as the short-term necessities.
