One’s identity is the centerpiece of every aspect of his/her life – financial and social standing, health, family welfare, employment, education, etc. Identification, whether through civil registries or other national identification systems, has three overarching outcome goals from a development perspective: inclusion and access to essential services (healthcare, education, electoral rights, financial services, social safety net programs); effective and efficient administration of public services, transparent policy decisions, and improved governance.
With the far-reaching effect of digital identity systems, identity management has become one of the most important areas of innovation in the financial services industry and beyond. One of the companies investing substantial efforts to bring a federated identity system and give power over own identity to the individual is SecureKey. The company applies an ecosystem approach to building a trusted and secure identity system for Canadian citizens to access over 80 government services through its SecureKey Concierge service. Andre Boysen, Chief Identity Officer at SecureKey, shared his vision of the trusted identity networks of the future in an insightful conversation with the LTP Team.
