Security for the next generation
Identity theft, identity fraud, identity crime of all kinds is bad and getting worse. It is time to rethink identity for a digital world, not simply import electronic versions of the existing models. So… what would a digital identity look like? How could it work? How could it end the ‘security theatre’ of today to deliver real security for the next generation?
