Share Identity: How Do You Know It’s Me? And Can You Trust Me?

Event Details

Almost all of us are conducting transactions and accessing private data of some kind online. And in order to do so we must have a way to prove our identity and authenticate ourselves.

But who are we?

Identifying ourselves was once rather simple. We could provide a social security number or drivers license number to prove our identity. But we are no longer just the static identifiers that we have been assigned. We are our behaviors, our knowledge and our physical selves.

So, what’s the best way to identify someone?   And is there a way for us to manage our identity and have control?

At some point there has to be the ability to establish trust (or not).

This is not just a human dilemma. There all kinds of devices connected to the Internet. Do they have identities? And with many of them performing critical functions and containing private data how do we manage who has access?

Come join us Wednesday, September 18 to discuss the concept of Identity in the digital world and how it impacts each and every one of us.

We will hear from industry experts: Airbnb, an online marketplace and hospitality service brokerage company; Allthenticate, a provider of single device authentication: The Purple Tornado, strategic intelligence firm with a specialization in identity; and Zymbit, provider of security modules for IoT devices.

This program will be moderated by Central Coast MIT Enterprise Forum Board Member, Kathy Chill.

Speakers

Paolo Parigi, Lead Trust Scientist, Airbnb

Chad Spensky, CEO, Allthenticate

Heather Vescent, Founder, The Purple Tornado

Phil Strong, CEO, Zymbit

Organizer

MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast

The Central Coast MIT Enterprise Forum hosts the region’s top business and technology events. Each month, we bring together veteran business leaders and experts to host events designed to educate, inform and inspire entrepreneurs.

Our Mission
To promote a unique process and atmosphere to develop and strengthen the entrepreneurial community in the Central Coast through interaction with experienced executives who have successfully navigated the challenges of building an organization.

In 1986, the MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast was established to serve the coastal business communities of Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Enterprise Forum has 25 chapters worldwide, each offering unique programs and networking opportunities for entrepreneurs.

Presentations
Early stage businesses face many common challenges. In case presentations, the Forum provides local entrepreneurs the opportunity to present their business plans during an open meeting before a panel of specially chosen business experts and an audience of peers and other people interested in business development. This Forum format provides the presenting companies an opportunity to receive feedback and suggestions for their businesses from experienced professionals.

Selected Topics
Special topic presentations address current and specific challenges facing early stage businesses. A special panel of entrepreneurs and industry experts is assembled for an in-depth “round table” discussion of the issue.

 

MIT Enterprise Forum of the Central Coast is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization registered with the state of California, supported by individual and community contributions. Tax ID/EIN# 77-0248019
