It’s been a tempestuous year in digital identity with major breaches hitting the press on an almost weekly basis. This seminar will look at some of the latest research in user behaviours when managing and sharing their identity details online and how the mobile industry is working with the industry to addressing some of these challenges to enhance trust in digital trust services and the protection of its users’ identity online.
