Everyone matters: enabling identity for everyone

Everyone matters: Enabling identity for everyone

Sep 12
In today’s digital world, high consumer expectations of privacy, security and convenience drive the need for high quality solutions that deliver an exceptional customer experience.


Regis Bauchiere, General Manager, Identity Products & Services, Australia Post

Event overview

Globally, the need for robust identity verification systems is growing in parallel with the need to remove friction from the process. Some countries have already adopted a national identity framework and Australia Post General Manager, Identity Products and Services, Regis Bauchiere will lead a discussion using examples of Estonia’s framework and his personal experiences in India. 

Some of the common factors guiding the development of any identity ecosystem will be presented, including accessibility and providing consumers with a choice of channels to help them simply and securely prove who they are in an inclusive way. Australia’s identity ecosystem will be discussed, including the role of digital identity, the economic value it can deliver, and how digital channels can be used to increase identity assurance and reduce friction for citizens.

At CEDA boardroom briefings Trustees hear from an informed, expert guest speaker in a private, small group setting. Invitations to boardroom briefings are a valued benefit of CEDA membership.
