Last Wednesday I was privileged to be able to offer Kantara's insights to the UK's Liberal Democrat party which were well received, on 3 questions posed to a representative group of industry entities: Standards - we'll never have "one standard" so what is the goal?; Current UK challenges & threats - where does the UK fall behind and what might happen if we keep that way?; Wishlist - if you could demand anything of the UK government what would it be? Our responses go to assist Lib Dem parliamentarians in understanding the challenges around digital identity and to inform future policy. Meanwhile the UK continues to await the government's response to the call Call for evidence on the matter nearly a year ago, into which Kantara contributed.

Kantara kicked off its own Summer webinar series in July too with the Assurance Program's 'what does it take to be approved as NIST 800-63-3 conformant?' and the UMA Working Group's 21st Century Health Information Interoperability + user Control'. Both of these were well presented and well attended. A special thanks to speakers's Blake Hall, KUMA's Ray Kimble, NIST's David Temoshok, HIE of One's Adrian Gropper and Identos's Alec Laws, wonderfully supported by Staff and in particular Ruth Puente, who helped with both sessions.  Summer's not over yet so stand by for other announcements!
