..:: Special Event at the World Economic Forum in Davos

For the World Economic Forum 2015, following main sponsorship by WISeKey and in partnership with Fraunhofer FOKUS in Berlin among others, IKED co-organised the Roundtable: "THE RISE OF BORDERLESS ELECTRONIC IDENTITIES: ADDRESSING PRIVACY SECURITY AND TRUST IN THE POST-PASSWORD ERA".

The event aimed to provide a neutral platform for stakeholders working on Cybersecurity, Trust Models and Digital Identification, to work together around a common electronic identity system. For Europe, this responds directly to the proposed Single European Digital Identity Community as envisaged by the Digital Agenda (DAE) in its Key Action 16. Other regions face similar issues, however, and the session adopted the global perspective. The event further ventured into the importance of these issues for fulfilling trusted e-services and comfort in data-sharing among individual users and organisations, e.g., in finance, start-up activity, health, education, and so forth.
