The main aim of the Digital Identity Programme is to improve people’s access to public services by providing them with a safe, reusable and easy way to prove who they are or that they are eligible for a public service.
To support this aim, a key commitment within Scotland’s digital strategy is to develop a digital identity service for Scotland.
We are delivering:
- ‘Secure sign on’ to make accessing online public services easier and simpler, using one account to securely log in to a variety of services.
- ‘Identity verification’ for when a public service needs to confirm identity or other personal information.
- A personal and secure ‘attribute locker’, where people can choose to save verified personal information, to use again when applying for other public services.
We are hosting an online event on the 16 November from 14:00 to 16:00. We’d like to invite you to join us for an update on progress, as we prepare to go live with the new service and to hear what’s planned for 2023 and beyond.
Join us to hear from the digital identity programme team about:
- The names and features of the service
- How we are developing an ethical and inclusive service, and designing this with user insight
- How we are ensuring security and privacy by default
- A demonstration of the secure sign on and identity verification features
- A look towards the features we are working on to support users
- Plans for the attribute locker, a private and secure place where people can choose to save verified personal information, so that they can use it again when applying for other public services.
There will be an opportunity to pose questions to the programme team during the event. You are also welcome to ask questions in advance when registering for the event.
(Wednesday) 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm GMT
