About this event
The last 12 months have been dominated by the pandemic. Getting control of COVID has dominated every agenda in every sector. For the travel industry, a near-total shutdown has reversed long-term, year-on-year increases in international traffic, and airports and airlines have faced major reductions.
As the world begins to contemplate lifting the shackles of lockdown and cautiously opening up, we are at a critical juncture for borders, travel and the role of strong identity systems.
As we finally begin to emerge from this global crisis, now is the right time to focus on how we start to re-shape the future.
This Festival of Identity webinar – presented in association with the Secure Identity Alliance (SIA) and identity stakeholders from across the world - is an opportunity to take stock, presenting a fresh look at where we are today. We will explore what the identity sector should be doing now, and ask what is realistic. We will pragmatically assess whether prior ambitions and targets are still feasible in the near term.
Underpinning this webinar, is the launch of Strong Identity, Strong Borders, a comprehensive guide to border control compiled by the SIA. It introduces all the main themes crucial to effective border control, with many practical examples from around the world. The guide aims to facilitate common understanding and partnership between border specialists, and other critical stakeholders, such as airports.
