Unveiling the Future of Personal and Organizational Identity

In a groundbreaking hybrid event that blends in-person and live-streamed experiences, the Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF) is set to host “MEF CONNECTS ID & AUTH: The Dawn of Personal and Organizational Identity.” Taking place in London on May 25th, this event marks the first of its kind to delve into the realm of organizational identity (OI) alongside personal identity.

With the convergence of cutting-edge technology, evolving governance models, regulatory frameworks, and shifting public sentiments, the industry is poised to reshape both online and offline experiences and services. Central to this transformation is the concept of personal and organizational identity, driving a new era of trust, reputation-driven engagements in the phygital (physical-digital) realm.

According to Michael Becker, CEO of Identity Praxis and Chair of MEF’s Personal Data & Identity Working Group, “Organizational Identity is a new capability for organizations and their agents (humans, machines, bots, and AIs) to assert their identity and make claims related to their authority, with individuals verifying these assertions without any human intervention. OI has the potential to streamline customer journeys, supply chains, reduce operational costs, mitigate cybercrime, and reinvigorate organizational trust and reputations.”

As personal and organizational identity standards, governance, regulations, and technological innovations continue to evolve, the next five years are predicted to bring about more significant changes than the previous century. The event aims to explore the dawn of personal and organizational identity, shedding light on the mechanics, implications, and major players involved in this paradigm shift.

Over the course of one day, MEF CONNECTS ID & AUTH will feature 18 sessions and gather insights from over 40 global leaders, dissecting various aspects of personal and organizational identity. The agenda encompasses a wide range of topics, including the current landscape of ID and AUTH, the power of data as an identifier, the rise of organizational identity and global governance for delegated authority, the significance of entity identity in trust and engagement, the utilization and maintenance of organizational identity credentials, industry governance through regulation, the implications of eIDAS for individuals and businesses, open wallets and their impact on the customer journey, mobile intelligence in securing and streamlining engagement, combating fraud and bias through liveness tests and credential validation, the privacy threats posed by the IoT, empowering creators and individuals through a value shift, and the necessity of age assurance in a digital world.

The event boasts an impressive lineup of headliners, including Andrew Bud, CEO of iProov and MEF Chairman, Stephan Wolf, CEO of the Global Legal Entity Identifier Foundation, and Daniel Goldscheider, Founder and Executive Director of the OpenWallet Foundation. These esteemed figures will be joined by a host of industry experts, such as Alison McDowell, Co-founder of Beruku Identity, Andrew Tobin, Commercial Director of Europe, Digital Trust Services at Gen, and Marie Austenaa, Head of Digital Identity at Visa, among many others.

MEF CONNECTS ID & AUTH offers a platform for attendees to gain invaluable insights, network with industry leaders, and stay at the forefront of the emerging landscape of personal and organizational identity.
