The COVID-19 pandemic is changing many aspects of human interactions and is already shifting priorities in significant ways worldwide. Undoubtedly, this disruptive impact will be extensive and long-lasting, and we expect Africa not to be exempt from it. Already some broad takeaways are emerging regarding what  changes are likely to persist going forward.

ID4Africa is organizing this webinar to allow decision-makers in Africa’s identity management a unique opportunity to share with their peers and the worldwide community of experts, the impact they are seeing and the practices being put in place in response to this new reality.

Discussions will explore how African identity management is adapting to the new normal and share on lessons being learnt so far on how identity management can serve crisis management.

Get direct updates on:

  • The impact of COVID-19 on current identity management projects or plans
  • Recent views on the need for inclusive digital identity that supports service delivery.
  • Whether the recommendations to conduct transactions from a distance, safely and securely, has created an urgent need to implement alternative payment systems.
  • The consideration of contact vs contactless biometric enrollment, identity, and authentication technologies based on the new realities and their potential effect on current laws or policies in the country.
  • The impact of COVID-19 on privacy and data protection in their countries.
  • The role of identity in supporting social safety nets in this period of crisis.
  • The influence of the pandemic on certain requirements for a health ID platform
AND MUCH MORE!

Joseph Atick

Président Directeur Général 
ID4Africa

Le Dr Joseph Atick est un défenseur reconnu de renommée mondiale et un expert en matière d'identité. Ayant été l'un des fondateurs de l'industrie de l'identité il y a près de 30 ans, il a dirigé plusieurs entreprises dans ce domaine et a développé certains des algorithmes fondamentaux qui sous-tendent aujourd'hui l'identité numérique sécurisée, y compris le premier algorithme de reconnaissance faciale commercialement viable. Il a pris sa retraite de l'industrie en 2010 pour se concentrer sur la promotion de l'identité pour le développement social et économique dans le monde. Dans cette mission, il s'est associé à la Banque mondiale et à d'autres agences des Nations Unies, et a été fortement impliqué dans le développement et les tests sur le terrain de la méthodologie et des outils analytiques qui allaient guider les activités ultérieures dans ce domaine, et conduire au lancement de l'initiative ID4D à la Banque mondiale. En 2014, le Dr Atick a co-fondé ID4Africa en tant que Mouvement panafricain pour promouvoir des transformations numériques responsables à travers l'identité numérique en Afrique. Il est un ardent défenseur de la vie privée, de la protection des données et des droits de l'homme et continue de conseiller les gouvernements et les organisations internationales sur l'utilisation de l'identité pour le bien public. Le Dr Atick est titulaire d'un doctorat en physique mathématique de l'Université de Stanford.
