What a rollercoaster the last few weeks have been! But through it all, DINZ remains on track with its mahi to advance both its purpose, where every New Zealander can easily use their Digital Identity and its mission, to empower a unified, trusted and inclusive Digital Identity ecosystem for Aotearoa New Zealand that enhances Kāwanatanga (honourable governance), Rangatiratanga (self-determination & agency) and Ōritetanga (equity & partnerships).
DINZ’s legendary keystone research of recent years is planned to be repeated in 2022 and is shaping up very well. But it needs your support to make it happen. Its critical importance to understanding year-on-year consumer perspectives of Aotearoa’s digital identity landscape is to be augmented in 2022. There will be an additional focus on sectors of society more challenged by digital identity, as well as a new focus on business perspectives. This is so important in the year that the Digital Identity Services Trust Framework Bill progresses through Parliament, where it is envisaged that some Digital Identity Service Providers may opt to become accredited/certified under the eventual regulation.
Leading by example, InternetNZ has stepped up as Platinum sponsor for this important research. DINZ deeply appreciates its support, this gets us over halfway towards the funds needed to begin the work. DINZ needs additional like-minded organisations who are leaders in this space – members or others – to lend financial support to enable this important research to start.
Get in touch for a Gold, Silver, or Bronze sponsor pack, outlining the opportunities available. Align your brand with this important piece of work and support and advance the industry.
Events planning is well underway, with the Digital Trust Hui Taumata moved two months later to 27th July at the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington. It takes place straight after the Cybersecurity Summit 25-26th July and there are a few sponsorship opportunities still available to associate your organisation’s brand and purpose to this landmark event (details below).
DINZ has plans for several events in the major centres once restrictions ease, if venues can be located. Please get in touch if your organisation has a suitable space that DINZ could use to host an event and do some long overdue face to face networking and catching up.
Ngā mihi nui,
Colin and the DINZ Executive Council
