Micro-identities are the product of divided data, enabling users to separate personal and professional digital IDs. The potential of micro-identities in society’s digital transformation is explored in this interview-style article with Carey O’Conner Kolaja, the CEO of AU10TIX. She believes this digital transformation is permanent, therefore solutions to prevent fraudsters and conceal personal data will be vital.
Data is often more valuable to fraudsters than financial transactions. Currently, businesses receive more data than they need. Micro-identities will therefore limit their access to necessary data. O’Conner Kolaja stresses the need for governments and tech bodies to work together to ensure safety, security, and freedom in society's digital development.
