Meeting burgeoning demand for eGovernment services

As lockdown restrictions hit the economy hard, online solutions are vital to ensure businesses stay afloat.

According to the UN’s 2020 e-government survey, “the number of countries offering at least one online transactional service increased from 140 in 2018 to 162 in 2020. Moreover, the prevalence of some online services—such as applying for building permits, driving licenses and personal identification cards— increased by 100 to 150 per cent”. While citizens are eager to enjoy multiple online services, proving a specific identity has never been so important. Despite this, nobody else but governments has the wherewithal to build a trustworthy system that safeguards their people against any data privacy threats.

With a digital ID, securely logging on to an e-government platform, signing an official document remotely or proving your age without disclosing all personal details have never been so convenient, easy and secure.
