 The Future of Digital Identity Evening 

 Identity management for a changing world 
 18:00 - 21:30 
 Wednesday 19 Sept 2018 
 The Ivy, Soho

The digital world is expanding, in new ways and in unpredictable directions. Customers expect to interact in a ‘frictionless’ fashion. You must know who they are and what they want. Secure identity is a hygiene factor, and digital identities are proliferating.

How people experience the world around them is also evolving, as AI, AR and IoT bring digital and physical worlds closer together. What does this mean for identity? How do you put customers at the centre of this new experience?

Join us for an evening of debate to explore how digital identity is evolving, and innovative approaches to identity management.
