Our headlines and podcasts are filled with the promise of web3. Positioned as a digital utopia that will foster and reward creativity whilst righting the wrongs of data equity. This new world, fusing our physical and digital – will be more immersive, collaborative and experiential than any technology we have known.

Both the opportunities to strengthen digital rights and decentralise identity, along with the very real threats that exploit digital trust. Understanding the weaknesses provides a window into the next wave of identity and security innovation.
