Pandemic Unemployment Benefits – Where Franz Kafka Meets Fraud
As the COVID pandemic hit, the Federal government disbursed hundreds of billions of dollars to the states for the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA) program - and thousands of fraudsters raced in to exploit weak identity proofing controls in the states to steal those dollars.  States raced to implement strong identity proofing systems to stop the fraud - but in some cases, legitimate claimants found themselves caught in a bureaucratic mess straight out of a Kafka novel, where they were unable to get benefits because they could not convince the state who they really were.  This panel will explore different facets of this issue - and ways the government might do things differently going forward.

Improving Digital Identity – Where Government Can Help
Government is the only authoritative issuer of identity - but its systems are largely limited to paper and plastic credentials, whereas commerce is increasingly digital.  Improving digital identity thus requires the government to help close the gap between physical and digital credentials.  This panel will explore what agencies are doing today - and where Congress may look to steer things next.

Identity and the Individual and Inclusion
Improving identity isn’t just about making systems more secure - it’s also about making sure that identity systems work for everybody.  For people who are poor, who are of color, who are living with disabilities - some of America’s identity systems don’t work that well today, and this then creates gaps that can exacerbate other inequities.  This panel will dive into different perspectives on how the design choices we make in both physical and digital identity systems can impact individuals, and discuss ways we can make things better.

How Government and Industry are Rethinking Authentication
Twenty years ago, authentication meant a password.  Ten years ago, it meant a smart card or an OTP token.  Today authentication is changing - both because attackers have caught up with legacy tools, and because industry and government have both innovated to come up with approaches that are both more secure and also easier to use.  This panel will dive into the ways that authentication is changing, and how government and industry are both updating their approaches.

Next-Gen ID Proofing – Attacks and Protections and AI, Oh My!
The pandemic accelerated attacks on identity proofing tools, given that most transactions were forced online and so fraud attempts followed.  While adversaries are getting more sophisticated, security practitioners are as well - in many cases using artificial intelligence (AI) to more effectively detect and block attacks.  AI offers great benefits, but its use also has raised policy concerns around potential bias and accuracy issues.  This panel will explore how AI is being used today and how companies in the space are taking proactive approaches to tackle potential bias and accuracy issues, and discuss the role policymakers can play in ensuring that AI-enabled identity tools deliver maximum benefit and minimum risk.
