MEF European Consumer Trust Summit

December 1, 2016 @ 12:00 - 17:30


Part of MEF London Week and supported by Mozilla, the 7th Consumer Trust Summit brings together enterprises, start-ups and technology providers to discuss key market enablers while offering an essential European regulatory update.

With the EC’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) rolling out across Europe, this is a must-attend event for anyone looking at the business opportunities of data as well as those tasked with managing risk and compliance. The half-day programme features four expert sessions taking an in-depth look at the regulation, use cases, trends and drivers that are disrupting and enabling game-changing opportunities for businesses and consumers alike when it comes to personal data.

New data protection rules mean consumers must be presented with meaningful choice and control over the way their data is collected and used. But what does that look like in practical terms, and how can businesses benefit from involving consumers more in the process? The risks and opportunities affect all sectors and emerging technologies including AI and IOT create new challenges. The debate needs to move beyond privacy policies and look at new data flows, consent, privacy by design and explore how choice and control can be implemented.

In the digital world, the issue of ‘who you are’ is hugely important. Every organisation wants to be sure you are who you say you are, from the eRetailer to the tax office to the bank. It is very easy for fraudsters to exploit the system when all that is required is an email address or password. When the burden of proof is higher, it causes friction and can be highly problematic for users.

Digital identity is a key component of GDPR as well as other regulation including eIDAS & PSD2. It’s an area receiving lots of investment and attention – whether it be authorized providers of identity, propriety solutions or innovators rethinking the nature and purpose of identity management or the ultimate goal of federated identification.  The panel explores the key business benefits and how to create a trusted identity.
