This report predicts the explosive use of digital identity systems in a post-COVID world

The authors write that the prevalence of remote working during the pandemic has highlighted the need for privacy and secure digital identity. Currently, we are burdened with a huge amount of passwords and outdated verification systems, which have contributed to an onslaught of cyberattacks.
