Event Information

A digital identity conclave bringing together Industry Stalwarts from the blockchain space.

About this Event

With the general public increasingly aware of the importance of security and ethical management of personal data, the traditional centralized digital identity systems have been exploring new ways of the redesign. The trend is backed also by regulators through the release of directives PSD2, GDPR, PDPB, MiFID2, etc.

For businesses, this means onboarding friction, costly and complicated KYC processes, while maintaining regulatory compliance. On the other hand, the citizens suffer from multiple fragmented identities and mishandling of identity information.

This conclave will bring together industry leaders to discuss how emerging technologies, like distributed ledgers (blockchain), can be leveraged to solve the problems mentioned above.

Discover the power of Decentralized Identity in our Global Blockchain Conclave focussed on Decentralized Identity for Telecom Sector
