What is digital identity?
*A Digital Identity is information used by computer systems to represent a person, organization, application, or device. A digital identity enables these to be recognised online.
Digital identity has the potential to touch almost every aspect of our lives. It can be used to access services including banking, establishing a company, healthcare, medical prescriptions, tax, travelling and voting. This includes day to day transactions, travel data, financial history or medical health records, all of which need proof of identity.
