Digital identity

Digital identities will provide a gateway for citizens and SMEs into the connected ecosystem of services making up the digital economy. Consumers will be able to give permission for the secure use of their data across companies and sectors, allowing innovative players to create new services. Through market wide standards, digital identities will bring great economic and social benefits, deliver trust, security and privacy for citizens and save millions in costs for public and private sectors.
