Identity and Privacy 2009

I’m delighted to announce that Identity and Privacy 2009 will be held in London on 14th and 15th May 2009.

[I trust you’ll forgive the blatant plug for this event, but it’s not often I do such a thing, and I must stress that this is a not–for-profit activity – in fact if we do make a profit then part of it will be donated to charity]

Here’s a date for your calendars: London, 14th and 15th May 2009.

I’m delighted to announce that the Enterprise Privacy Group will be partnering with the Digital Identity Forum to host the first Identity & Privacy Forum, sponsored by Consult Hyperion with support from HP , Microsoft, Oracle , Symantec , Verisign and VoicePay . The Forum will be held at the Guoman Charing Cross Hotel, London, on 14th and 15th May 2009. We will be sending out a detailed agenda in a couple of weeks, but just as a heads-up there are going to be four sessions: “a snapshot of electronic identity”, “co-evolving privacy and consent”, “sharing front line experiences” from the public sector and “catching up with biometrics”.

Why a new Forum? Well, for some years the Digital Identity Forum and the Enterprise Privacy Group have been running their own events every year and usually only a week or two apart. We’ve noticed that the overlap between the events — in terms of subjects, speakers and delegates — has been growing year-on-year, so we decided to get together and focus our efforts on one event that inherits both traditions: debate, discussion and learning in a relaxed atmosphere, mixing technology, business and policy to try and create new ideas, new breakthroughs in identity management for the 21st century.

We’ll be sending out the agenda in a couple of weeks and fleshing out the expert panels. If you’d like to contribute then please let me know.
