Click here to register for our brand new webinar: Reinventing Digital Identity!
As the digitization of our lives advances, the need for a new identification system is becoming increasingly apparent. Could decentralized ID be the key?
August 24th at 12pm, we'll explore this fascinating subject with our guests:
✅ Kyle Robinson, Senior Strategic Advisor at BC Digital Trust
✅ Charles Nouÿrit, COO and Co-Founder at 2140 Technologies Inc.
The discussion will be moderated by our Executive Director Marie-Chantal Leduc.
August 24th, we'll gather to explore a topic that lies at the core of our digital existence: digital identity. Digital identity is no longer just a buzzword; it's a fundamental aspect of our online interactions. Your digital identity represents who you are in the digital world - your online presence, activities, and the data associated with you. It impacts various aspects of our lives, including cybersecurity, privacy, access to services, and even our trust in digital systems.
The purpose of this webinar is to dive a little deeper into the world of digital identity, examine its components, understand its implications, and explore the technologies and solutions driving its evolution. We have assembled a panel of experts who will share their insights, experiences, and expertise on this ever-evolving topic (see above).
During this webinar, we'll discuss for instance about Decentralized ID (DID), also referred to as Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI), that aims to empower individuals with the ability to manage and control the sharing of their personal information and data, while facilitating the participation of various entities in contributing attestations or credentials. A DID approach could also provide greater privacy and security for individuals' data, as well as improve verifiability of data and enable data minimization at scale.
Together, we'll also talk about the numerous organizations and governments that have been actively exploring diverse strategies for digital identification. By the way, Canada has been moving faster than we might think on the matter of digital ID, with the Canadian provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland and Labrador reported to be working on digital ID plans.
