Identification and Verification in the Digital World


10 DECEMBER 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has fast-tracked technology plans and accelerated digitisation strategies for Australian businesses, enabling trade though the crisis, promoting more efficient operations and a transformation in the way goods and services are offered, purchased and utilised by Australian consumers. To assist with economic recovery, the Federal Government has announced a $800 million Digital Business plan targeted at building on from the digital transformation of Australian businesses to drive productivity, income growth and create jobs.

A key element of the plan is the introduction of digital identification. A Digital Identity system will be developed to enable more secure and convenient engagement with government services, and in future, the private sector for the benefit of both businesses and consumers.

By removing out-dated regulatory barriers, boosting the capability of small businesses, and backing the uptake of technology across the economy, the advancement of virtual verification and digital ID is set to improve operational efficiency, simplify processes and boost the capability of small business.

Join us for this webinar to hear from an expert in the field, Tim Brookes, Director - Risk Advisory, Ashurst, explore the challenges and opportunities these developments will bring, now and in the future, for the industry, members, and our customers.
