Identiverse Content Countdown Series, Part 5: Privacy, Blockchain and Distributed Ledger
We’ve been covering blockchain and distributed ledger technologies and their place in the identiverse for a number of years. We’ve had in-depth discussions about privacy, self-sovereign identity, hashgraph and more.
The conversation has evolved quite a bit in the last few months. So in 2018, we’re taking a much more careful look into where distributed ledger technologies can help us solve identity problems in better—not just ‘new’—ways. We’ll also be looking into what new problems they might introduce, as well as bringing up some adjacent technologies that have some bearing on this area.
We’ll be touching on distributed ledger technologies in a number of sessions and master classes throughout Identiverse. Here are just a few highlights for you to look out for:
There is, of course, a close relationship between blockchain and privacy (although opinions differ wildly about what kind of relationship). Still, this is a good opportunity to also mention our privacy track. We’ve run this track for several years now. But new this year, we’re excited that Identiverse is approved by the IAPP for CPE credits, for holders of an IAPP certification. Here’s some of what our privacy track has in store for you:
We’re also excited and honored to welcome Jonathan Zittrain to our main stage on Tuesday. Among other things, Jonathan is a George Bemis Professor of International Law at Harvard Law School and the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, and he sits on the board of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. He has particular interests in battles for control of digital property and content, cryptography and electronic privacy. You won’t want to miss his keynote address, The Privacy Conundrum: Rights or Rewards? | June 26, 1:15-1:45pm.
Remember: Your full conference pass to Identiverse includes access to all our great keynotes, sessions and master classes, thoughtfully curated by a content committee comprised of subject-matter experts from across the industry. Plus, you also get priority access to recordings of all the sessions! And to top it off, you can also claim CPE credits for your CISSP (or other (ISC)2 qualification), and your IAPP certifications for attending Identiverse. And don’t forget, our awesome welcome reception and legendary closing party are included as well!
Check back with us in the next part of the countdown series as we finish the blog series with a roundup of tracks at Identiverse (or check out our last blog on identity standards and architecture sessions). If you haven’t reserved your spot, register today to join us June 24-27 in Boston, MA.
