Avast’s views and opinion on the Draft Report on the proposal for a regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council amending Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 as regards establishing a framework for a European Digital Identity. Published by the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy, May 31, 2022.
Europe is in the early stages of a transformation in the way people identify themselves online and establish digital trust with other people and organizations.
New legislation has been proposed, commonly referred to as “eIDAS 2.0”, to create a harmonized digital identity capability for all EU citizens. The proposed legislation is big on privacy, trust and user control. It seeks to rebalance the digital world more in favor of the individual and less towards mega corporations.
