Achieving Digital Trust: The New Duty to Prove the Truth
May 16 @ 9:45 am - 10:30 am
An event every day that begins at 2:45pm, repeating indefinitely
Within just a few years, the world’s systems and humankind have experienced a rude awakening: no longer can anyone presume any digital information to be true. Every business decision that relies on the digital assets under your control must first ask, “Can this information be trusted to be true, or could it be ‘fake news’?”
As more and more automation pressures IT executives to create, and manage, machines as the authors of critical information records, how can you succeed in taking responsibility to engineer and execute digital trust? Direct from his University of Oxford classroom, Jeffrey Ritter will share the answer to that question, offering a new architecture for understanding how trust is gained and lost and, in doing so, present the essential building blocks with which you can build and deliver systems and information assets that can be trusted.

I believe in peace. To begin in peace is easy; to sustain peace is incredibly difficult.
The digital, wired world offers enormous, nearly unlimited, potential for improving and sustaining peace among humankind.
But what we are doing now—managing risks with greater security to offset vulnerabilities in our existing systems—is broken as a strategy for business and for governance. We must imagine and achieve something new!
Human history documents a fascinating truth: we rarely begin or fight wars against those with whom we do business. Nearly 30 years ago, I began work on enabling peace by enabling commerce—electronic commerce!
Today, privacy, information security, cyber defenses—all revolve around the same target: achieving trust to sustain electronic commerce and create new wealth. Digital trust is not only required; achieving digital trust will prove to be the competitive differential for the winners of the next generation.
My mission is to work passionately to imagine, create, and deliver tools that enable us to achieve real trust across the vastness of the Internet and global commerce.
Through my public speaking, webcasts, workshops, teaching, writing, and new research, I strive to empower you—as an individual, as a professional, as part of team, and as a member of many digital ecosystems—to craft the next generation of solutions that will generate and sustain digital trust.
