Kaija Kirch

Head of Digital Identity Technologies


Kaija Kirch is leading the Digital Identity Technologies Department at Cybernetica.

Kaija’s team is developing secure digital identity technologies and consulting governments around the world in creating contemporary digital identity strategies. Her team has created a smart-phone based digital identity technology that is used by 3 million people on daily basis for financial transactions and in government services. Digital identity is not just about implementing secure modern technologies, it is also about having proper procedures and legislation in place. That’s why, a team of technical, legal and procedural experts together is the best way to create a digital identity strategy that is easily implemented in practice.
