Invitation: Logius international seminar 2020 – Digital identity fraud in the public sector

Logius is organising the 4th Edition of the Logius international Seminar in The Hague on Thursday 14th May 2020.

About the seminar
The Dutch government offers her citizens a great method for logging in online: DigiD. Citizens can use different types of DigiD means for logging in online safely, such as two-factor-authentication. With this they can easily take care of their affairs with Dutch governmental organisations, pension funds and health care organisations.

But what if all goes wrong… What if criminals do a large scale phishing attempt to not only steal user names and passwords, but also SMS codes that are part of the two-factor authentication?

Unfortunately, this scenario became reality for Logius. Would you like to know how we dealt with this cyber-attack? And what we do to prevent identity fraud? Then please come to our seminar on Digital identity fraud in the public sector. Together with experts of other public IT organisations, we will share our lessons learned and approach regarding prevention and detection of digital identity fraud. The seminar will be hosted by us, Logius, the digital government service provider of The Netherlands and member of Euritas (the European Association of Public IT Services Providers).

The seminar will be held at the museum Mauritshuis. So you will also get a private tour to see Dutch famous masterpieces, such as Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring. The compact, yet world-renowned collection, is situated in the heart of The Hague.
