Digital technology is incorporated into nearly every facet of American life, from commerce, community, healthcare, food systems, transportation, education, media, entertainment, and employment. Its increasingly integral nature raises critical questions moving forward, such as what emerging technologies are complicating the ability to verify authenticity and integrity in a digital world? Also, what emerging technologies enable the creation of systems of trust that enforce standards of authenticity, integrity, and security? How can partnerships between government, universities, and companies shape public policy to prioritize authenticity and integrity within systems—and who will be the stewards and custodians of such systems?

To address these and related questions, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop on February 19-20, 2019. Through presentations from experts and robust discussions, the workshop focused on technologies, processes, and governance that affect digital privacy and security now and into the coming decades. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
