PRO TALK: Blockchain for Self-Sovereign Identity
In today’s digital landscape, we don’t own our digital identities. We might be able to control what information we put online, and manage how it’s used to a degree, but once we give that data to Facebook, Google, or Microsoft, they own it. The emerging technology of blockchain has the potential to change that with the concept of self-sovereign identity (SSID). With SSID, individuals could maintain control over their digital identities, as well as how it is used and where it is stored. This would benefit businesses and consumers alike, simplifying efforts like KYC that cost financial institutions millions of dollars a year, and preventing data theft or misuse like the current Facebook/Cambridge Analytica fiasco. Blockchain is a widely discussed topic under self-sovereign identity. There are many ongoing initiatives including the Sovrin Foundation, W3C Credentials Community Group, Decentralized IDentifiers (DIDs) to build identity on blockchain. This talk explores the evolution of identity management in the era of blockchain.

PRO TALK: Re-engineering Enterprise and Consumer Identity Management Using The Blockchain
Identity holds the key to delivering the convenient access that users demand, and securing critical data and infrastructure. However, given recent technological advancements and new methods on the horizon, identity is positioned to undergo a seismic shift within enterprises. Identity Management on the Blockchain empowers individuals, businesses and governments to establish, verify and exchange identity information simply, privately, securely and at world scale. Identity holds the key to delivering the convenient access that users demand, and securing critical data and infrastructure. However, given recent technological advancements and new methods on the horizon, identity is positioned to undergo a seismic shift within enterprises. Blockchain allows the ability to change the entire nature of digital identity management. Instead of being held by a company, the user could use the blockchain to maintain ownership and control over their own identity. As authoritative third parties certified they know an individual, they could share that information to create a web of trust. Future entities can verify an individual with confidence based on earlier efforts. How will distributed identity coexist with the notion of enterprise-owned assets? How will enterprise security need to adapt to new use cases? What are some practical strategies for transformation? how recent do changes in data management, security and authentication effect all type of enterprises? Why could blockchain play an important role in identity management Educate the audience on Blockchain &how it can help shift the identity landscape Share Best Practices & Pitfalls to using Blockchain for Identity Management? Why could blockchain play an important role in identity management?
