Identity management consortium Liberty Alliance has launched this year’s Identity Deployment of the Year awards.
The IDDY awards were established to recognise the best ID management deployments and the value they bring to businesses, governments, citizens and consumers around the world.
Nominations for the 2006 awards are open until 21 August, with the winners to be announced on 13 September at the Digital Identity World event in California.
The judging panel for the awards includes technology, policy and identity management experts. They will assess entries, looking at the benefits ID management deployments have delivered, the return on investment and how each deployment has addressed key issues, including reducing identity theft, meeting regulatory requirements or increasing privacy protection.
Individuals or organisations interested in nominating an ID management deployment for the 2006 IDDY Award should visit http://projectliberty.org/activities/deployment_award.php
