Let’s Talk About Digital Identity with Andrew Weaver, Executive Director of Digital Identity New Zealand (DINZ).
In episode 32, Andrew fills us in on the main trends and challenges for digital identity in New Zealand, its national Digital Identity Trust Framework and the importance of interoperability between identity systems. He also gives us an excellent tip for individuals and organisations on reframing identity, inspired by Maori identity validations – trusting and respecting identities as a precious gift.
“The strange thing with digital identity is most of the technology that’s needed is already there – we’re not really inventing anything new. The key to digital identity working is actually in collaboration.”
