Innovation in Identity: Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies

September 12, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies

As identity fraud and theft continue to impact economies around the world, blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) are some of the hottest topics on how to solve digital identity.

With companies, like SecureKey, and government initiatives, like the Digital ID and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC), Canada is home to some of the biggest decentralized identity initiatives in North America, showing the world how blockchain can solve fundamental identity issues.

Brought to you by OWI and Uniken, this KNOW Identity Forum will bring together leaders from the identity community to talk about how interoperable digital identity applications can enable and safeguard the digital economy. This Forum will feature exclusive peer-to-peer networking, a Live State of Identity Podcast with Dr. Ann Cavoukian, and an expert industry panel on lessons learned when deploying SecureKey's Verified.Me's platform. Drinks and light refreshments will be provided.

This Forum is for product managers, engineers, and business developers working on:

  • Large Scale Digital Identity Platforms/Programs
