If data is the new currency that is driving the digital economy, then your digital identity is an asset that needs to be protected like all other valuable assets.

If the case for digital Identity as an Asset is true, shouldn’t the control of the identity be with the owner?

The panel will look for answers to this highly debatable question. It will also explore the role of AI/ML to protect the personal digital identity and challenges arising from regulations such as GDPR and the upcoming California Privacy Act.

We hope you can make it to this event and feel free to spread the word.

This event is FREE for Premium Members
