2022 Public Sector Identity Index (ANZ)
The 2022 Public Sector Identity Index captures the perceptions of 850 IT and line of business decision-makers within national and state/local government organisations across the U.S., UK, and ANZ (Australia and New Zealand) with regard to their Identity and Access Management (IAM) strategy.
The report’s key findings include:
- Only one in five are extremely confident in either the security (17%) or ease of use (19%) of their current authentication solution.
- Username and password is the most frequently used authentication method by citizens (86%), compared to very little usage of biometric or passwordless authentication (16%).
- Four in ten are currently building their own IAM solution in-house (41%), and cite speed to implementation (83%) and using internal staff to manage IAM internally (82%) as two of the biggest pain points in doing so.
- Most governments are looking to expand their digital services in the next two years (75%) and rank protecting citizen’s privacy and data as most important when thinking about citizen services (73%).
An Identity-First approach puts identity at the centre of government digital transformation, while also laying the foundation for a Zero Trust security model. Key to this approach are modern login technologies that replace traditional passwords, and introduce friction only when suspicious behaviour is detected.
