What's the global state of information security

The speaker elaborated on the trends for information security using the example of government authorities issuing eID cards or e-passports. Since 2003 about 95 states around the globe have spent a lot of efforts in upgrading their ID cards or Passports with a secure chip and installing a state-of-the-art Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). Now governments have access to genuine identity data including biometrics stored on secure chips. Interoperability of chips and readers (at least of e-passports) is ensured by international standards developed by ICAO. However in order to stop criminal attacks on the new systems, the international community is asking governments now to improve the processes of establishing identity at the source. International bodies such as ICAO, G8, IOM OSCE, GCC are working on best practice of “Evidence of Identity” e.g by developing Social Footprint schemes based on complex architecture of data acquiring, collecting, processing, data mining, data matching, investigations, all in full automation and in safe environment.
