“It is my personal believe that choices we make whilst designing and implementing Digital Identity in our societies can (and should) ultimately result in a trustworthy, equal digital society. Thus, I am convinced that we have to advocate proper legislation and the challenge the design principles we choose to adhere to. Because digital identity is probably the ultimate enabler of a trustworthy digital society. I am excited to join the ID-Next advisory board and contribute to this international network of industry professionals and forefront organisations.
