June offers up the last major digital identity conferences before the summer break. Kantara's Track at EEMA's 31st Annual Conference in London June 13-14 was themed 'The rhythm of Kantara' and featured speakers representing each phase of the Kantara lifecycle. Representing new innovative ideas being prepared to be socialized in Kantara, non-member Dr Rachel O'Connell from TrustElevate talked about her idea to develop best practice in the handling of personal data of children and young people. She was followed by Kantara member Adunity (CEO Rupert Graves) who walked us through what needs to be done to clean up the awful mess that Adtech has created with programmatic advertising and how Consent Receipt, a deliverable from Kantara's Consent & Information Sharing Work Group, plays a key role. We finished with Kantara Trust Services accredited assessor member Nixu (Principal Consultant Compliance Bjorn Sjoholm) explaining 'what you need to know' as a service or solution provider to obtain 'trusted service' status using Kantara's flagship Trust Framework and Assurance program as an example, and how your auditor can be your friend as you navigate these waters. Thank you Rachel, Rupert and Bjorn for volunteering your time to allow the audience an opportunity to feel 'The rhythm of Kantara' in the way that you know it. A special thanks also to our friends at Liaison partner EEMA, allowing us podium time at their conference.
