“Formerly the exclusive domain of IT, information security is now a mainstream issue, as major retailers and government agencies have suffered data breaches, denials of service and destructive intrusions.

During the cold war we had the Communist Manifesto. But now a security manifesto?
Regardless of what it may be called, we do need agreement about what is and what is not acceptable practice and use of the Internet.

Fortunately, we are now beginning to see some attention being paid to digital identity, a field that has been limited, primarily, to the financial services industry.
Why Digital Identity is the next major enabler for the digital economy | Daisy Group PLC.
Our prediction is that all internet users will eventually utilize their own digital identity signature that will eliminate a great deal of the clutter, cybercrime, and other invasive digital activity. It will also validate – privately – online accounts, various credentials, and other unique digital properties that facilitate private and secure use of the Internet.
