Hello everyone,

October started with another great conference - this time in London.  The GDPR Summit was a new effort, hosted by Kantara 'friends in mission' TheTrustBridge

Our next gig is the pre-conference workshop to curtain-raise Kuppinger Cole's Consumer Identity World Tour 2017 is in Paris, 27th November.  This promises to be a great event, with both speakers and registrations bulging.  We have such great teamwork amongst our European members and they certainly have not let us down in this instance. 

Thanks once again to sponsors Forgerock and Saviynt

Meanwhile, with the generous support of ID.me for supplying editing resources, work continues apace on the NIST SP 800-63-3 Service Assessment Criteria for identity & credential service providers whose solutions are utilized by relying parties online.  Consent Receipt topped our downloads this month, beating our regular winner, the Identity Assurance Framework document suite that underpins Kantara's Trust Framework Operations Program. As you browse the new content on that link, please take our Survey regarding your current or planned compliance with Identity Management related standards.  Help us to help you!

And on the Personal Data side of the house, the V1.1 of the Consent Receipt is near final, while accompanying GDPR-related new work items are being prepped and planned for announcement. The first of those will be the Consent Management Systems Best Practice work group, designed to draw in service providers in the space and converge their Best Practice, so if your organization is in this space, please look out for the announcement of the opening of this work group. Thank you members iWelcome and Digi.me for your directed funds to bring this most important work forward. 

If you want to firmly place your brand on the side of good, in an industry consortium that 'does' while others 'talk' then look no further than Kantara and its Sponsorships package here.   

Kind Regards,

Colin

I’m going to pass it around to try to counter all the crazy Smart Contracts will solve all our problems talk going around the [entity redacted ] right now".
