The significance and protection of identity in the online world

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The topics of regulation of identity management and the impact of recent technologies on the concept of identity were discussed and debated in the 150th issue of Computer Law & Security Review and 25th anniversary, with a panel discussion in Barcelona in early November 2010. It was highlighted that it is of limited value to speak of digital identities as each person only has one identity and it is that identity that matters offline and online. Others viewed identity differently, noting that Internet users may have different identities for different purposes such as in relation to online gaming and online dating etc. The panel also discussed the desirability of people having an opportunity to correct data associated with their identity. Some participants indicated the view that it is very difficult to function effectively in society without being part of the e-society since government agencies have moved to the online world.
