Decentralised Identity: Giving Control Back to the Consumer

Presented by

Mary Jane Dykeman, INQ Law | Tod Beardsley, Rapid7

About this talk

In an age of the digital footprint, where data is being produced at such a rapid pace that we almost can’t keep up, decentralised identity offers an escape from data surveillance. Decentralised identity gives back control to the consumer by putting them back in control of their data credentials in an environment of greater identity trust. Not only that, but we know that identity data is often exposed when it comes to security breaches. These kinds of breaches can have knock on effects, from financial stability, to trust, to brand reputation. Join us in this session as we break down decentralised identity and discuss: - Why decentralised identity is so key today - The role of DIDs (Decentralised Identifiers) - How to create and sustain trust - Getting started with decentralised identity - And much more!
