In psychology, identity is the qualities, beliefs, personality, looks and/or expressions that make a person (self-identity) or group (particular social category or social group). While that is a vital concept there is another, very practical, meaning for identity: the condition of being oneself or itself, and not another. How can you prove who you are, especially as it comes to a digital world? This has wide-ranging implications from payments to digital voting, establishing ownership to fraud prevention.
This new-era in identity will be the topic of a major upcoming conference, K(NO)W Identity 2017:
Convening the world’s most influential organizations and smartest minds
in finance, tech, and government to shape the future of identity.
The purpose is to converge identity experts from across all industries in one space, to be at the nexus of ideas and policies that will fundamentally change identity around the world. The conference will provide business leaders, privacy and security experts, tech innovators, and senior policy makers the forum to discuss the future of identity. By utilizing the world’s best event technology, K(NO)W ID 2017 connects attendees digitally and physically unlike ever before.
The conference sessions cover key issues across four critical themes:

Identity is a fundamental on ramp for many crucial services ranging from finance to healthcare to education, and other vital social benefits. This theme will tackle not only progress in identity systems for inclusion, but also the new business models and practices emerging out of these challenges.
Technology and Implementation
In this theme we’ll explore key technologies changing the identity landscape. Our expert cross industry panels will also delve into the practical implications and lessons learned from implementation.
