Building digital identity solutions in #YESWV
The West Virginia Digital Identity Tech Hub will lead the development of next-generation, trusted, digital identity solutions critical to U.S. economic digital identity solutions.
Digital Identity is …
|the identifiable data of a person, organization, nation, application or device
|the unique credentials used to authenticate a person, organization, application, or device in an online environment, and encompasses
|the technical infrastructure required to create, safely store, and responsibly utilize both the data and the credentials
This is vital to global security, because…
There are high-stakes risks with cybersecurity implications for national security, critical infrastructure, health records, financial transactions, and much more. The benefit from enhancing the existing biosecurity in West Virginia will pay dividends. It is estimated that digital identification will reduce fraud and increase sales of goods and services while increasing employment and labor productivity.
What is the TechHUB?
The West Virginia Department of Economic Development has developed an application that will bring together a consortium to build this technology ecosystem and will leverage West Virginia’s assets and resources to lead and address critical national security concerns.
