With the rapid fusion of physical, biological and digital, identity is now more personal than ever. At the same time, data breaches, hacking and centralised honey pots mean that customers are more vulnerable than ever before.
How we collect and process data in order to personalise services may be the difference between gaining trust or getting fined. Distributed ledger, Self-Sovereign Identity and Zero Knowledge Proofs offer new opportunities to build a trusted data and identity stack. Taking the best of CIAM together with increasing the rights and protections for customers will drive connected use-cases, lower costs and enable new business models.
This session will focus on how incorporating SSID, ZKP and progressive disclosure enables enterprise to personalise products and services without putting customers at risk. Bridging CIAM and SSID means less data and more insight.
Over the past 12-18 months, there has been a mounting interest in how Blockchain technology might support the next generation of IAM systems. The promises of decentralized and self-sovereign identity, which promote a frictionless user experience and improved privacy controls, are very appealing to any organization looking to reduce both costs and risks. But how do you get started? Many organizations are just starting their journey to cloud, so the idea of Identity + Blockchain may seem too futuristic. In this session, experts from IBM will share how clients are progressively moving towards a decentralized identity solution today while maintaining and integrating it into their existing identity management systems. Learn, how use cases like passwordless authentication for law enforcement personnel and digital job credentials are becoming a reality. Moving to cloud-based IAM is the first step in the process, and with the right strategy, the next generation IAM is closer than you think.
For the past five years at Work-Bench, we’ve been investing in a total reimagining of the enterprise technology stack. The enterprise infrastructure stack that powers Fortune 1000 organizations is in the midst of a tectonic shift. This talk will highlight key trends in cloud and cybersecurity affecting the enterprise and where disruption lies for VC investment and corporate innovation. While there remains a lot of buzz around emerging technology, such as ML/AI and new infrastructure patterns like serverless, this keynote will cut through the noise and marketing hype and help bring to the fore what's truly transforming the enterprise technology landscape.
If we look under Alexa’s hood and read between the technologies we find a disturbing reflection of our own identities and personal data. In your home Alexa is always listening and influencing your options. In your company’s product deployment Alexa is influencing your brand, your customers, and your user data. We will discuss why this represents a geo-political shift more significant than the rise of social media. As a previous developer of Alexa skills and other AI systems I will share with you my lessons learned.
And we will examine alternatives.
In today’s world, organizations and people manage a complex web of digital relationships. To keep everyone safe, each digital interaction must be validated. Strong tools and technologies are now available to help organizations protect their resources, employees, business partners, and customers. But there are no similar tools—beyond legislation—for individuals trying to protect their private information. As an industry, we have a responsibility to provide technology tools that ensure privacy for individuals even while they strengthen security. This means supporting citizens’ rights by putting them in control of their data and providing standards-based solutions for interoperability, portability, and protection for the entire data lifecycle.
This interdisciplinary talk will lead you through on why not just identities, but any identity-related information should not be stored on a blockchain. The main technical reason being that none of the blockchain USPs is applicable when it comes to identity (-related) data, especially assertions.The legal and business reason being that blockchain is not (yet) compatible with and accepted in our legal and regulatory framework. So what is the way to go?
There's not many other areas where security and decentralisationis as important as when we're dealing with identity data. Max will explain how to take advantage of already-existing technology (even edge technology) to ensure convenience for the enterprises as well as cost reduction while at the same time making sure there is maximum convenience for the identity owners (humans, machines and other enterprises).
Not only is there no form of AI that understands what it says, can draw conclusions from it, and can base decisions on it, but it is not even known how such a synthetic intelligence could be created. In our time, let's say in the next two and a half decades, it is not primarily a question of developing an ethical code within which AI's can unfold as independent subjects, but rather of a far more profane view of responsibilities. If a self-propelled car decides to drive against a traffic light pole without any action on my part, who is responsible for the damage?
Are there already solutions in our current legal system for the regulation of such matters, in which only the former of the "basic manifestos" of injustice - the constituent elements of the offense, illegality, and guilt - still plays a role, or must a new category be devised for this?
This keynote will offer an interesting reflection on the current and future situation.
