Privacy has become pivotal to any digital identity initiative and is a top priority for governments around the world.

The Secure Identity Alliance* (SIA) has joined forces with the Norwegian University of Science and Technology* (NTNU) to conduct an in-depth research on Privacy by Design integration into the development of National Digital Identity Systems (NDIS).

The main objective of the survey is to examine practitioners’ “knowledge of”, “attitudes towards” and “practices for” when integrating privacy by design principles into the development of digital identity systems.

The survey is 100% anonymous and it will take you no more than 10 minutes to complete.

Although participation is anonymous, you may receive in exclusivity a copy of the study’s results with a full report on the correlation between knowledge, attitude and practice when it comes to privacy by design.


We thank you in advance for your precious time and valuable contribution!
