State of the digital union: Advancing digital identity globally
Greg Wolfond, CEO, SecureKey, USA

SecureKey is bringing together leading organizations to launch a new digital identity ecosystem that will allow consumers to prove they are who they say they are, online, in person, or over the phone. This is achieved by leveraging existing trusted digital credentials that users have with financial institutions, credit unions, telcos and other reliable sources. The ecosystem ensures privacy, security and trust by leveraging a distributed architecture, and ensuring consumers are always in control and authorizing requests to access their personal information. Blockchain technology plays an important role in all of this, as it makes identity verification more efficient, while also making sensitive information much more secure.

Through the launch of this digital identity ecosystem, SecureKey aims to ensure that identity verification continues developing into a strong and secure process, that the exchange of data is more efficient, and that the process of verifying that ‘you are you’ where you want, with whom you want and when you want, is made simple for both consumers and businesses.

•    It’s time to put the consumer back in the middle of their own transactions;
•    Proving ‘you are you’ should be as simple as pressing a button;
•    Collaboration between leaders in blockchain to create an improved digital ID ecosystem worldwide.
