DAY 2 – 17. Nov. 2023

08:30 Registration, coffee

09:00 Conference opening day 2

09:15 Key note 2: Digital Identity, Jon Ølnes, Tribe Lead signing and trust services, Signicat
The talk discusses both the broad concept of identity as the sum of all information that can be linked to a person, and the narrower topic of (national) official identity. In the broad sense, identity is under pressure from profiling and commercial and other exploitation. In the narrow sense, digital identity is both a human right and a prerequisite for digital societies. In both aspects, the EU is “the regulator of the world”. Identity is a core element of both the future Internet and future national societies, and now is the time to get this done right.

Jon Ølnes has more than 25 years’ experience from work in digital identity, security and trust as scientist, consultant and in both the private and public sector. For the last 5 years he has been driving product development for Signicat for the European markets. Jon has a particular interest in the cross-section of society, politics, law, and technology and is heavily engaged in policy-level discussions around identity and trust services in Europe.
