Wellington events coming up

For people in Wellington in the week starting 10th September and interested in the identity space, there are two events worth attending coming up.

Firstly, the E-government BarCamp on Saturday, 15th September. As the blurb says, “This BarCamp is about making a difference to egovernment in New Zealand. We are a small country with a very well connected, vibrant web community. Government 2.0 can happen here!”

So far, 56 people have signed up and represent some of the best thinkers of Wellington. Given the great diversity in perspectives and backgrounds of the participants, definitely an event worth attending.

Secondly, I’m giving a presentation “All-of-government Authentication and Privacy” at the next Technology and Privacy Forum hosted by the Office of the Privacy Commissioner on 12th September. It’s a free lunchtime session but confirmation (email address is available from the link above) is required by 5th September.

The blurb for this one is, “With a mission to maintain the trust relationship between people and government, Vikram will describe how the [Authentication] Programme plans to handle core identity information, including the aggregation of data about identity-related transactions.”
