Orientation and Strategic Fields of Action for Sustainable Success


Understanding Relevance

A digital identity consists of information that uniquely identifies and authenticates a person or company online. This includes personal data such as name, date of birth and address as well as technical information such as IP address or digital certificates.

Digital certificates are particularly important in public and corporate environments. They enable secure access to digital services from authorities and the digitally signed transmission of data. Some authorities require companies to use digital certificates.

Knowing the Regulatory Framework

The eIDAS Regulation (eIDAS = Electronic Identification, Authentication and Trust Services) and the General Data Protection Regulation form the legal framework for digital identities in the European Union.

While the eIDAS Regulation requires electronic signatures, seals and provides qualified trust services, the General Data Protection Regulation regulates the protection of personally identifiable information in the context of digital identities.

Using Information and Communication Systems

Authorities are increasingly relying on digital identities to provide digital services to companies. These ensure secure authentication and help companies meet compliance requirements.

Despite the eIDAS regulation, there are national differences in the implementation and provision of digital certificates. Companies that operate in multiple countries often have multiple digital identities for using digital services from authorities abroad.

Meeting Compliance Requirements

Companies that use digital identities across borders often rely on various country-specific qualified trust services.

It is important to regularly check the personally identifiable information associated with digital certificates to ensure the integrity of digital identities. Data from management personnel is often linked to certificates. If these people change, companies should ensure that they apply for new digital certificates in a timely manner.

By using digital identities, for example for electronic mailboxes at authorities or company accounts, compliance with compliance guidelines is made much easier. Compliance services in the area of digital identities support companies in making optimal use of their international business potential.
