Review 2019: Digital Identity & Trust Summit

On November 19th the Digital & Trust Summit was taking place in Square Brussels. It was a sunny day with an amazing view of the city of Brussels. The day contained interesting sessions from different partners and speakers, and therefore brought together a diverse group of professionals to discuss the latest trends and developments about digital identities and more.

To tell something more about the highlights of the day: it started off with an interesting session of the Belgian Data Protection Authority about correctly processing customer related data. After that, Dominque Steenbeek of Mastercard presented Masterchef’s vision for digital identity in today’s increasingly connected world. Several other topics were discussed during the day, topics such as the prevention of e-mail data breaches, an in-depth overview of modern Identity protocol standards, various technologies for mobile identity verification and more. The European Commission closed the summit with their keynote about an European Self-Sovereign identity framework.

We are happy to hear the enthusiasm of the participants:

  • I got in one-day an helicopter view on what is going on, challenges and new trends at the soution provider, but also European project and Belgian authority levels around identity, I appreciate the balance between industry-wide and vendor-specific information.’ – Isabelle Noblesse (SWIFT)

  • Great networking opportunity, and super to hear from industry experts on the latest developments and what's available on the market. Both from the perspective of internal corporate access management, to payment solutions for online platforms, I learned about short to medium term future plans and opportunities for our organisation.’ – Pieter Hendrickx (H&M)

  • Meeting new interested people and projects, meeting existing customers and having their feedback’ – Christine Mahieu (SPF BOSA - DG Digital Transformation)
