The 2015 Identity Conference began with Deputy Prime Minister Bill English calling for more permissive privacy settings in information sharing across the public sector. It ended 36 hours later with applause and a call for beers.
The Identity Conference is over and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Nearly 300 people attended the May conference to hear a strong line-up of speakers.
If you were unable to attend, you’ll be able to see what the fuss was about. Nearly all the keynote presentations are now available on our YouTube channel, including the presentations by our international guests, Doc Searls, Sandy Pentland and Malcolm Crompton.
Cybersecurity was also an important theme and comparisons were drawn between Australia and New Zealand’s digital security laws. There’s coverage here.
We’d like to thank and acknowledge our organising partners – Victoria University, the Department of Internal Affairs, and Paardekooper and Associates – for delivering an enjoyable and stimulating two days of content.
Given the interest in and success of this event, we hope we’ll see you next time for the fourth Identity Conference.
