In an op-ed for Nextgov, Venable Managing Director of Technology Business Strategy Jeremy Grant writes that the U.S. needs to further examine the implementation of digital identification systems. "Unfortunately, our current systems for verifying and protecting those identities are outdated," Grant writes, adding that instances of fraud, data loss and financial loss can be attributed to the current paper system. Grant cites a positive step forward came last month with the White House Office of Management and Budget's new policy that calls for agencies to develop and offer new means of digital identification. "It’s the start of shifting the predominant model for identity verification from one based on entities aggregating personal data without opt-in consent to one where consumers proactively request that their data be validated for the sole purpose of verifying identity," Grant writes.
