Blockchain and Self-Sovereign Identity
Join us for an evening of networking and blockchain. In this talk, Quartech Account Executive Brad Head will demystify blockchain and cryptographic hash. He will introduce self-sovereign identity, a model in which you—not organizations—own and manage your identity and digital wallet. Brad is passionate about self-sovereign identity. In August, he participated in a roundtable discussion with the Honorable Navdeep Bains, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development of Canada on the topic of making Canada a competitive, data-driven, digital economy. Brad’s contributions to the discussion included the importance of trust and privacy in a data-driven economy and the use of digital identity and decentralized blockchain ledgers for creating the necessary identity trust fabric. Brad is also a certified Scrum Master since 2004 and has a degree in computer science from the UBC and a diploma of technology in surveying engineering from the BCIT. networking/food: 5 pm – 6 pm tech talk: 6 pm – 7 pm
