Jan Willem Broekema
ID by Law - Is the European Directive valid in 10 years?

European privacy is, as far as informational privacy is concerned, protected by the European Data Protection Directive 95/46. Well, in fact it is not. What does the directive do and will it be of any use in 2010 and onwards?

Both the private sector with its interest in databases and the public sector, mainly with interest in fighting fraud, have reason to circumvent the directive and the national laws that result from it. Will privacy be of use in 2010 on the internet and should it? What if and what if not?

Is there a reason for concern? Do you have any privacy anyway on the internet?

Dennis van Ham
Electronic identity: are you (proven) in control?
From a technology perspective identity was not integrated in the design of the Internet. How do you know who and what you are connecting to? In order to solve this problem we have a patchwork of solutions, some of them work and some of them don't. From a business perspective today's enterprises are involved in fierce competition. Information has become a critical asset. And so has the protection of this information. To put it briefly: 'who do you give access as an organization and who do you want to keep out while having a system that is practicable and verifiable?' Furthermore from a social perspective we see a criminalization of Internet. Attackers (of our electronic identities) have become more professional and pose a real threat to the further growth of Internet (and its economy). And last, but certainly not least, from a regulatory compliance perspective organizations are increasingly required to prove who is having access to what data and how this guaranteed.

In his presentation Dennis will talk about identity as a strategic business issue and associated trends in Identity and Access Management (IAM).
