Identiverse Content Countdown Series

Part 2: Privacy

Let’s talk about privacy. Along with security (which we’ll be covering in Part 3 of this content countdown series) it’s one of the industries adjacent to identity that has the most immediate overlap and impact. We’ve featured privacy-focused content at Identiverse for a number of years, and 2019 is no exception.

First up, you’ll definitely want to make time for the presentations we have that are specific to privacy:
