HID Global Joins Secure Identity Alliance
IRVINE, Calif. — HID Global has joined the Secure Identity Alliance, the industry’s reference body for secure documents and eServices.
Created in May, the alliance promotes the usage of government-issued e-documents, such as national identity, health cards, driving licenses and e-passports, to encourage deployment of secure, convenient online services to strengthen end-user privacy. The coalition has developed two working groups — Secure Documents and Digital Identity — to tackle the ongoing security, identity and privacy challenges faced by governments.
“HID Global is honored to be a part of an organization that shares our vision of enabling governments around the world to successfully design and implement secure electronic identity solutions that benefit both national and cross-border security and enhance citizen engagement,” says Rob Haslam, vice president of government ID solutions, HID Global. “Through the alliance, we hope to play an instrumental role in helping governments streamline the integration and interoperability of new systems and processes — ultimately making government-to-citizen ID programs more secure and effective.”
Other Secure Identity Alliance members include Gemalto, Morpho (Safran), Oberthur Technologies, 3M, American Banknote Corp. and Trueb AG.
