[Dave Birch] Here’s another date for your calendars: London, 14th an 15th May 2009. The Digital Identity Forum and the Enterprise Privacy Group will be hosting the first Identity & Privacy Forum, sponsored by Consult Hyperion with support from HP, Microsoft, Symantec, Verisign and VoicePay. The Forum will be held at the Guoman Charing Cross Hotel, London, and I’m looking forward to seeing you there. Toby Stevens and I will be sending out a detailed agenda in a couple of weeks, but just as a heads-up there are going to be four sessions: “a snapshot of electronic identity”, “co-evolving privacy and consent”, “sharing front line experiences” from the public sector and “catching up with biometrics”.

We’ll be sending out the agenda in a couple of weeks and fleshing out the expert panels. As soon as we do, you’ll be able to buy tickets!

Why a new Forum? Well, for some years the Digital Identity Forum and the Enterprise Privacy Group have been running their own events every year and usually only a week or two apart. We’ve noticed that the overlap between the events — in terms of subjects, speakers and delegates — has been growing year-on-year, so we decided to get together and focus our efforts on one event that inherits both traditions: debate, discussion and learning in a relaxed atmosphere, mixing technology, business and policy to try and create new ideas, new breakthroughs in identity management for the 21st century.
