Let’s talk about digital identity with Rainer Hörbe, Senior Manager at KPMG Austria.
Episode 14 features a discussion by Oscar and Rainer about identity management and e-government, including views on challenges in real e-government projects – India’s Aadhar, Austria’s smart ID card and China’s residents’ card. They also talk about Kantara’s e-government work group, of which Rainer is the chair, and the annual TIIME conference, which he organises.
Rainer graduated in Computer Science from the University of Vienna. Working as a software developer for some years, he then specialised in identity and access management starting in 2001. In roles as a security and identity architect he contributed to projects like the Austrian eGovernment identity federation and European framework projects (epSOS, MAPPING). He is chair of the eGovernment WG at Kantara Initiative and contributor to standardisation activities in standards developing organisations like ISO SC27. He started the TIIME event – an annual identity conference – in 2013. Currently he has the position of Senior Manager at KPMG Austria, consulting clients in different sectors on enterprise IAM topics.
