Thinking About Digital Identities and Liability for Legal Transactions

Digital Identities form a foundational cornerstone in our digital economy, enabling individuals to access both public services (such as transactions with the Government) and private sector services (such as financial services).

However, the use of Digital Identities is not risk-free. Bad actors have successfully attempted to gain control of Digital Identities, raising concerns about who should bear the losses arising from the unauthorised use of these identities. In light of such risks, the Singapore Academy of Law’s Law Reform Subcommittee on Digital Identities is conducting a review into this area, and has launched an Issues Paper on 7 November 2023.

This session aims to outline the Subcommittee’s preliminary views in the Issues Paper on unauthorised use of Digital Identities, including a proposed framework to consider these issues, the policy tensions at play and possible law reform options.
