Let’s talk about digital identity with Richard Bird, Chief Customer Information Officer at Ping Identity.
In episode 46, Oscar and Richard discuss how the Decentralized Identity Foundation is helping people gain control of their online identities and why an open-standards based approach to identity management is the key to better privacy, lower fraud, and a more ethical user experience.
“Decentralised identity will create an empowerment framework for people to have a part to play in their digital identity.”
