The Digital Legacy Association the professional body for digital assets planning and digital legacy safeguarding
The Digital Legacy Association is the only professional body dedicated to digital assets and digital legacy. Since launching at Hospice UK’s annual conference in 2015, our mission has been to help ensure that everyone’s end of life wishes are met both in the physical world and the digital realm. We do this by supporting the general public, advising governmental organisations, social networks charities and other organisations to better support the public with their digital assets and digital legacy. We run training courses, develop best practices, publish resources and organise the annual Digital Legacy Conference. The Digital Legacy Conference has taken place in New York, Berlin, Rotterdam and in London and online.
The internet is the biggest and most “disruptive” force since the industrial revolution. As a result, society is spending an ever increasing amount of time online. This has led to a range of benefits and challenges as to how society prepares for death, mourns and remembers the deceased into posterity.
If someone you care about dies how important is it for you to be able to view their social media profile?
