Heather Vescent, the owner of The Purple Tornado a foresight and strategic intelligence consultancy, explains how Digital identity gaps in Corporate and IoT Identity can be solved from an NPE (non-person entity) point of view. The webinar will answer: What is an NPE? How is an NPE both different and similar to human identity? What is the relationship humans have with NPEs? How is NPE identity more complex than the identity we know today? What considerations do we need to make when developing identity solutions for the future?
