 Our Review

Everything these folks put on is excellent and we’re big fans of their events.

I’d argue that this event is particularly relevant considering the rise of Cybercrime we see year-on-year. The event is being beamed in from Germany,

Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Tuesday, June 2nd 2020, or created by us.

The Idea of managing digital identities and being in control of your own data, sharing it only when necessary and as much as necessary, seems to be difficult to achieve through traditional centralized identity management models. However, the concept of Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) makes this possible. Blockchain (DLT) is not a precondition for delivering an SSI solution, but there are many points of overlap between the concepts, and traits like security and transparency make it a compelling tool in achieving self-sovereign identity. Various SSI projects are underway, and provide an environment for users, companies, and governments to exchange credentials.
