Welcome to the eIDAS conference: eIDAS and Centralised Electronic Signatures - transforming digitalisation, on 22 November, 2016 in London. This is a joint conference hosted by Thales e-Security and Cryptomathic.

Join us for an informative conference for business leaders and information security professionals who are looking to understand how the Electronic Identification and Trust Services (eIDAS) regulation will affect your organisation and explore how to achieve significant business benefits to avoid eIDAS merely becoming a compliance activity. Investigate the current challenges in the market, question what the future holds, and learn how peers are preparing for tomorrow.

Conference Overview

This conference sets out the eIDAS agenda of providing a strong foundation of trust for international electronic transactions by delivering transparency, interoperability and innovation for businesses and consumers. We explore how this relates to trust services and electronic signatures, while evaluating how centralised electronic signature technology meets industry requirements for advanced and qualified electronic signatures and how to deliver digital signatures in the cloud for reduced operational costs, enhanced security and superior customer experience.

Benefits of attending

During the event you will find out how large organisations can implement centralised electronic signature technology to address eIDAS, data integrity and non-repudiation while delivering the complete digital customer journey. Other benefits include:

  • Learn how to leverage existing 2FA infrastructure to offer an end-to-end digital customer journey with centralised electronic signatures
  • Understand the business advantages from applying centralised electronic signatures
  • Explore how electronic signatures have already transformed organisations across Europe
  • See how UBS implemented a large scale qualified electronic signature service
