Blockchain Forum - July 23
Can you trust the party on the other end?
Daniel Bachenheimer, principal director digital identity, Accenture
Drummond Reed, chief trust officer, Evernym, Inc.
We have two pioneers of the Trust over IP (TOIP) initiative speaking to us about:
- enabling the trustworthy exchange and verification of data between any two parties on the Internet
- allowing business to better protect and manage digital assets
- providing consumers with simple-to-use privacy and security within their hyper-connected lives
The Internet seeded innovations in a way no one could have predicted. The result is a far more connected and convenient world. But the compromise has been privacy and security. Businesses and governments understand there are technologies today that could help improve trust and deliver new and better services to consumers and to the public, but these issues demand a collective response. No one can do it alone.
JOIN US to hear Evernym's Drummond Reed and Accenture's Daniel Bachenheimer provide a wonderfully clear explanation of TOIP and the real business and consumer issues it is solving.
