Cybersecurity Perspective: What is a Digital Identity?


“The problem with identity today on the Internet is that anybody can impersonate you. What’s different about a digital identity is that it’s dynamic. It’s built on anonymized data based on the device that stands in place of the person in that transaction. We cross-correlate the credentials used, the locations it’s used from and the behavior over time.”
