3 Mar: C.TI weekly round up!

Here are 3 announcements that caught our attention this week.

  1. EU extending Digital Identity support beyond country borders
    The EU have announced their European digital identity framework will provide EU citizens with digital access to key public services across EU borders. This signals a paradigm shift away from centralized commercial authentication providers towards allowing citizens to manage and present their data independently and privately.
  2. Australia remains a global leader in Digital Identity adoption; state and nationally
    Australian states and territories push to align nationally on the adoption of Digital Identity. New South Wales Digital Minister Victor Dominello shares more here about their program and positive impact to the public specifically.  A significant precedent for other countries to observe and likely, in the not too distant future, follow.
  3. The BBC flipping the data model and giving control back to their users; following a success Solid “Pod” pilot program
    The BBC have demonstrated an industry first by adopting Solid Pods to give control back to their users.  This allows users to own their data and consent to sharing it with the BBC first. The BBC is setting a strong example for personal data management within the media industry which is likely to influence global policy and legislation around such.
