What a great year! We are thankfull to all our members, partners and our dedicated team who made 2015 a good year. But what have we really done, you might ask.

Well, some highlights. The fifth edition of the IDnext event took place on 15-16 April 2015. The programma committee had constructed an excellent programme with various topics across the world of digital identity. Location of the IDnext event was the NH Leeuwenhorst centre in Noordwijkerhout. At the same location, the NVVB (Dutch Association of Civil Services) conference took place simultaneously, and on the second day, there was a joint plenary programme. Jerry Fishenden, Joni Brennan, Ruben Hornbach, Marie Johnson and Freek van Krevel were some of the speakers during those two days. Trulioo - on-line verification service provider - was the winner of this year's award ceremony.

IDnextplatform organised also the eID debate in Nieuwspoort. By means of this debate, it responds to the call to start the public debate between citizens, scientists, politicians and private and public companies that are involved in identity management. Private and Public organisations entered into the debate, and Ingrid de Caluwe - a Dutch member of Parliament who attended the eID debate - gave her opinion about the current developments. Furthermore, the IDnextplatform conducted a study about the question 'what is the perception of the Dutch citizen regarding the accessibility, reliability and security of the digital services provided by the Dutch government? The results were presented during the eID debate and included a street survey that gave an impression of the people in the streets and of how they feel about the digitisation of the Dutch Government.

Together with CA technologies, a masterclass Access Governance 'from mindmap to roadmap' was held. As ever, insights were shared that can really improve the way you control access. The masterclass included an interactive session with mr. Serge Oskam - manager Identity and Access Management at NN Group N.V., as well as further customer experience to help the participants to fast-track their knowledge. IDnextplatform published a white paper that is available on request.

And further not to forget the contributions of all IDnext adepts in our periodical IDnext newsletters. As you know, IDnextplatform is a membership organisation. Even though you can participate without becoming a member, joining our platform helps to enable IDnextplatform to engage in (innovative) project programmes, business development and other type of activities (e.g. events, masterclasses, workshops) to strengthen our mission in the world of Digital Identity.

IDnextplatform is looking forward to 2016, and hopefully it will be another great year. One of the greatest joys of Christmas is having your whole family by your side to celebrate it with you. And may 2016 be even more promising that the year before. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family!
