Espen Bago
Identity Program Owner

Espen Bago realized in 2002 that as system administrator he’d been working in Identity already for a while, and decided from there to fully explore what this Identity thing was all about. He’s been an independent Identity Advisor and coordinator to large enterprises for the last few years, but in 2021 became Identity Manager for the Norwegian Labour and Welfare Administration. As such, his goal is to make certain that identities – and the real persons this represents – are not forgotten when governments inevitably go all-in digital. He’s also a founding member of IDPro, and a member of the IDPro Body of Knowledge Committee and the IDPro Certification Committee.
