Humane by design: Principles for good digital identity

As we move increasingly online, being able to prove your identity using digital channels has become more critical than ever. However, unintended design decisions can put barriers to inclusive and accessible digital identity which can have damaging, and sometimes life-changing, consequences.

Through their professional and personal experiences, ThoughtWorks Lead Security Architect, Robin Doherty, and Principal Service Designer, Katherine Alsop, will share the key principles for putting people at the centre of digital identity standards, supported by robust privacy and security controls. Learn how to design an identity-proofing process based on people, privacy and technology to ensure everyone can engage effectively in a more digital society.

Lead Security Architect, ThoughtWorks

Robin is ThoughtWorks Australia's Regional Security Champion. He was a general purpose software developer for 10 years, until the growing disregard for users’ security and data privacy evident in the software industry inspired him to specialise. 

Robin believes traditional approaches to security are failing to keep up with the rapidly evolving landscape of threats, as well as the forever-increasing pace of change in agile delivery and modern software architectures. He is passionate about making it better.
