As we close in on the end of 2017, Kantara foresees 2018 as a very challenging year for the digital identity and personal data industry on both sides of the Atlantic - the GDPR & PSD2 pertaining to EU residents and changes in the way US federal agencies will procure ditigal identity credential services.  It will be very challenging for Kantara too, as pressure is applied by policy makers on its Trust Frameworks services at the same time as industry demand for new projects to fill in the blank canvas in advance of formal standards relentlessly increases. What better way to open the year then, than with Kantara's first hosted conference in London, the International Privacy Summit, January 29th.!

But first, it's holidays! Kantara wishes it's its members, partners and supporters Happy Holidays and a prosperous New Year.
