Indicio’s newest workshop is designed to provide the business community with the knowledge and confidence needed to make informed decisions about adopting and investing in the transformative power of trusted data ecosystems

By Scott Harris, COO, SSI Trainer

Today, we’re excited to offer the Executive Education SSI Workshop. This two-hour, instructor-led workshop will provide a business and technical grounding in self-sovereign identity (SSI) technology. Participants will walk away with an essential understanding of how SSI works, the pain points it solves for, the risks it mitigates, the use cases currently in deployment, and the opportunities that are created by being able to build Trusted Data Ecosystems (TDEs).

Self-sovereign identity can be confusing. SSI involves new technologies, standards, and infrastructure to solve fundamental problems in Web 2.0. These include:

  • The absence of an identity layer
  • The vulnerabilities of user profiles, logins, and passwords
  • The burden of data privacy compliance
  • The need to adopt zero trust security approaches to prevent data breaches.

TDEs bring together the components to solve these problems and are available in off-the-shelf products that are easy to integrate with existing systems.

The Executive Education SSI workshop from Indicio is designed to show a business audience how decentralized identifiers, verifiable credentials, and all their associated applications and infrastructure make it possible to verify data without having to check in with the source of that data—and in a way that solves the problem of privacy.

This training session is designed as a deep but manageable dive into a new and rapidly advancing technology. We’ll answer questions such as:

  • What is identity as defined by the technology?
  • Why was this technology developed?
  • What problems does it solve?
  • What is the business value of implementing a Trusted Data Ecosystem?
  • What is required to make SSI work?
  • What is machine-readable governance?
  • How to implement a trusted data ecosystem?
  • How do you integrate SSI with existing IAM systems?
  • How does a business make and save money with this technology?

We’ll also discuss use cases — using verifiable credentials to communicate between different systems and sectors, such as between healthcare providers and the travel industry. Learn how, by solving even the smallest critical trust issue, you can mitigate all sorts of data and identity risks while generating new revenue and opportunities.

Indicio’s workshops are interactive and instructor-led to provide the very best experience in small meeting groups of up to five people. This provides a setting to discuss specific use cases, answer questions and explore different types of high value data that needs to be verified as trustworthy.

Each session will conclude with Q&A and each participant will be provided with course materials for their personal use. This workshop is particularly suitable for business executives and investors seeking to understand how this new technology works, how it is currently being implemented, and what we, as a leading developer in this field working with dozens of enterprises, see happening in the near future.

Registration for this workshop is open now. Interested participants can purchase a session here .
