There is a distinct opportunity to shape the future of academia in the current moment — from a technological perspective as well as an identity perspective. Our identities are more than a set of attributes that define us; beyond a social security or account number, our identities are composed of data points that represent the unique experiences, skills, and qualities that comprise who we are and the way in which we interact with the world.
A student’s relationship with an educational institution extends far beyond graduation. Across a graduate’s post-collegiate career, proof of education becomes a critical component of one’s identity — this data encompasses not only certification but also experiences, competencies and performance indicators.
As a part of our digital identity series, AU10TIX published a whitepaper, Learning Through Disruption: Digital Identity in Education. It offers a comprehensive review of digital identity in education with actionable takeaways for education professionals.
After reading this whitepaper, you learn more about how to:
- Establish a two-way certainty who is accessing your digital educational systems.
- Evaluate how student and teacher data is collected, protected, and shared.
- Acquire cybersecurity protections adopted within the private sector.
- Maintain academic integrity, privacy and surveillance in remote learning environments
- Introduce verifiable credentials to create a foundation for trusted frameworks

"One requirement for educational administrators
is ensuring appropriate user access levels and authentication”
In a 2020 educational technology leadership survey conducted by the Consortium for School Networking (CoSN), IT leaders cited cybersecurity as their number one technology priority, for the third straight year. Privacy and security of student data ranked as the number two priority. These concerns are not without a strong basis.
