Episode 2: National Digital Identity: Challenges and Opportunity

Victor Dominello – Former Minister for Customer Service, Minister for Digital @ NSW Government


Despite a recent security breach, the NSW Digital Driver Licence (DDL) has reached 77 per cent adoption across the state, driven by its ease of use and the necessity of citizens to interact digitally with the government during the pandemic. 

With the same legal status as the plastic driver’s licence, the DDL’s novel pairing of identity management systems with verification services is becoming a north star for the federal government to follow as it seeks to simplify government services and secure its virtual borders. 

Mr Dominello, who at the time of recording was the minister for customer service and digital government in the former Perrottet Government, joined Gary Savarino, solution engineering manager for SailPoint, and InnovationAus.com’s publisher, Corrie McLeod, for the latest episode in the video podcast series Identity inside/out: Getting ID right.  

The trio discussed why previous consolidated national identity systems failed to deliver a world-class user experience and meet modern-day cybersecurity standards, and tackled potential use cases for digital identity, including security concerns, from both public policy and private sector points of view.
