During this seminar we will focus on how attributes are becoming the new digital identity currency and how cross border identity transactions will shape ecommerce. A number of distinguished experts from the industry will focus on how with the raise of the digital transactions, organisations need stronger identity authenticators to allow users to complete these transactions. Especially within the financial sector, the use of attributes can allow companies to simplify and yet strengthen the security of transactions.
