Digital identity solutions enable an ecosystem where we can create, manage, and verify digital identities, giving us access to digital services right from the comfort of our home using a computer or mobile device. Our reliance on digital forms of identification and proofing with people, organizations and internet-enabled devices require solutions that enable trust between ourselves and other people in the digital sphere.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the importance of digital interactions and services both in the public and private sectors have accelerated at an astonishing rate. According to Gartner, “Covid-19 catapulted digital identity from niche technology circles into mainstream political debates. The pandemic forced governments to realize the importance of providing and validating identity information remotely for resilient operations.”
