Business and identity cards

By Dave Birch posted Dec 8 2008 at 11:53 AM
[Dave Birch] We've decided to run a number of events linking the Digital Identity Forum to sister organisations with shared interests. The first of these will be joint seminar with EEMA at the British Computer Society in London on January 29th next year. This seminar, sponsored by Consult Hyperion, will be looking at the business opportunities that might arise from the introduction of the UK national identity card. You can register for the seminar at the EEMA web site. IPS will be presenting and we're hoping that all of their prime contractors will join an expert panel to share ideas on how British businesses can create new value around the scheme. We'll have an in-depth case study from Belgium to examine the business ecosystem that has grown up around the smart identity card introduced there. Look forward to seeing you there.

Whatever anyone might think about the wisdom of the government's plan, or the particular implementation chosen, the fact is that there will soon be a new identity infrastructure, so it makes sense for organisations both private and public sector to begin exploring how they might exploit that infrastructure. Many businesses will probably not have even considered their strategy toward ID cards despite the fact that the first cards are already being issued, so this is a chance to find out exactly what is happening and share some creative (we hope!) ideas. Look forward to seeing you there.

These opinions are my own (I think) and are presented solely in my capacity as an interested member of the general public [posted with ecto]
