Boosting Trust in the Digital Market: the Role of eIDAS Regulation
- TYPE: Keynote DATE: Tuesday, May 05, 2015 TIME: 15:40-16:00 LOCATION: AUDITORIUM
Ensuring trust and security is key to make citizens, business, and public administrations confidently go digital and benefit from secure cross-border/cross-sector electronic transactions. Trust in the digital world calls for high transparency and accountability standards in all sectors benefiting from the transformative nature of digital (e.g. banking, e-health, sharing economy, e-commerce, transport, etc.). It is in this context that last year the EU co-legislators adopted the eIDAS Regulation 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services. eIDAS provides the legal framework for the cross-border recognition of electronic identification means, ensures the legal certainty and interoperability of trust services (namely electronic signatures, electronic seals, electronic registered delivery services, electronic time stamp and web site authentication) and establishes the non-discrimination of electronic documents vis-à-vis their paper equivalent. The presentation will focus on the role of eIDAS in realising the digital single market and on the actions at the EU level to support the uptake of electronic identification and trusts services and the Regulation in the EU.
