Internet Identity Workshop (IIW) XXXII (April 20-22)
The Internet Identity Workshop (#IIW) has been finding, probing and solving identity issues twice every year since 2005. At its heart, IIW is a participatory conference – an Open Space unConference. It has no keynotes or panels, so it’s about getting stuff done! All attendees are welcome to call and host or present sessions. No formal presentation is required to host a session. The day’s schedule is designed to provide session time slots in as many time zones as possible. The agenda will be created live each day by attendees present at the opening circle or closing circle, depending on your time zone.

Hyperledger In-Depth: An hour with Joisto Group Oy
Data is the new oil and, as with any valuable market, is becoming very tightly regulated for all companies. Part of that regulation in Europe is GDPR, which ensures the storage and retrieval of data is 100% irrefutable. In this webinar, Jani Partanen of Joisto Group Oy will share first hand how his team has implemented a production GDPR-compliant storage offering with Hyperledger Fabric. Jani and the team will share their business and technical journey and discuss how document storage with blockchain-based integrity is set to increase data security and mitigate the pitfalls of privacy legislation.
