Common to the co-located conferences forming Smart Security Week, the Grand Opening will give a global view of public and private Cybersecurity initiatives to forge a united response to cyber threats, from policies and regulations to PPP, from industry solutions to best practices. The European Union’s responses to cyber threats has paved the way to cooperative cybersecurity between Member States with the NIS Directive, cPPP, IoT “Trust Label”, Privacy, GDPR, eIDAS and a renewed cybersecurity framework in preparation. On the other side of the Atlantic, the US NIST’s Framework also aims to the convergence of cybersecurity responses. The recent development of these initiatives, and others from around the globe, will be presented and discussed in the first part of the Opening. The second part will focus on private sector cybersecurity responses with focuses on Digital Identity management and IoT security challenges.

Presentation of OSCE /ODIHR Compendium of Good Practices in Identity Management

The ICAO TRIP strategy outlines the so-called five elements of traveller identification management, of which Evidence of Identity is one of the key parts. To contribute to improved information sharing on good practices in identity management the OSCE (Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe) developed a Compendium of Good Practices in Identity Management in the OSCE Region.

The Compendium is intended for the use of identity management practitioners and policymakers who are exploring options to improve their national identity management infrastructure as a whole or some of its individual components. The benefit of the Compendium comes from the wealth of information it provides in a structured and analytical format about the characteristics of identity management systems in OSCE participating States.

Presentation of the Compendium is accompanied by the presentations of select OSCE participating States showcasing their experiences in developing and improving frameworks for issuance of national identity cards and travel documents.
