Carole House, Former Director for Cybersecurity and Secure Digital Innovation for the White House National Security Council (NSC), speaks to on frameworks for government, joining a financial regulatory authority, and advocating for the responsible use of AI, ledger technologies and blockchain.

Amid lots of discussion of open source technology, Carole House explains the need for accountability and transparency from authorities to manage the cyber risks associated with emerging technologies, supply chains and critical public infrastructure.

Frameworks aimed at governments are currently “fragmented and inconsistent”, Carole says, while the government should be leading efforts to transform our identity system using evidence-based verification to issue digital credentials.

“Evidence based verification is a really critical way to successfully combat the hundreds of billions of pounds in fraud”, especially as AI is growing to allow deepfakes and cyber crime.
