Securing and Proving your Digital Self
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Thursday, October 27, 2016 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
We are all living in the era of digitalization, where nearly all processes, business and private, accelerate at an enormous speed. For example, employees are today located in different places on the globe, they use different devices, and do so at any time they need to. For access to sensitive data, they need to be able to authenticate themselves reliably.
The same applies as well to everyone else in the digital community, be it as citizens, customers, business partners, insured persons or bank account holders, no matter what age or nationality. To make authentication even more complex, nearly always one and the same individual has several identities, e.g. busy insurance broker during office hours, caring father and extreme climbing instructor in his spare time.
No matter what, in the online world, reliable identities are a must for legally valid transactions. There are several technologies available on the market that enable next to unfailing authentication. To be accepted by users, they need to show ease of use, mobile capabilities and cost effectiveness. On the other hand, regulators and compliance authorities demand auditability, non-repudiation and trust.
This KuppingerCole webinar deals with:
- Digital signatures based on international, published standards for digital documentation and encryption
- Signature frameworks supported by EU (eIDAS)
- The differences between qualified, advanced and adaptive digital signatures
- Business areas that profit most from the use of digital signatures
- Reducing signing processes from days to seconds
In the first part of the webinar, Matthias Reinwarth, senior analyst at KuppingerCole, will give an overview of today’s requirements for reliable digital identities. He will also illustrate the role of a signature as a means of uniquely identifying and linking its signatory to digital transactions, as a foundation for reliable authentication and authorization as well as a basis for consent and privacy.
In the second part of this webinar, Malin Ridelius, Director Product Marketing Software at Nexus, gives an insight into real life scenarios for leveraging digital signatures. She will also present modern features of state-of-the-art signature services and how usability and mobility can drive deployment success.

As users, devices and application workloads move outside the corporate network, the traditional model of enforcing security at the network perimeter is no longer effective. A Zero Trust model offers an alternative that secures data while ensuring it is accessible to employees, regardless of where they are working. But the path to achieving Zero Trust is unclear for many organizations.
