What is the eIDAS Regulation and how does it benefit companies?

Posted by media on January 16, 2018 at 9:00 AM

The eIDAS Regulation is a European regulation that establishes a common legal framework for trust services and means of electronic identification in the European Union.

The purpose of eIDAS, in line with the purpose for which the EU was created, is to facilitate any type of electronic transaction between citizens, companies and public administrations of any State of the Union.

In other words, any citizen of the EU can easily and safely access any public or private service offered by any State or company in the European Union. In short, it is about moving towards a truly digital single market.

In this post we will explain what the eIDAS Regulation is in more detail and what benefits it implies for companies.

What is Digital Identity and how can you protect yours?

Posted by media on November 7, 2017 at 9:00 AM

Digital identity, which is also known as Identity 2.0, is everything that identifies us in the online world. 

In the online world, in addition to retaining the same data that identifies us in the offline world, our identity is completed through everything we do: comments on articles, likes on Facebook, retweets, photos on Instagram, petitions we sign on Change.org, etc.

This set of online actions contribute to forming the perception that others have about us. In a context where digital identity theft is becoming increasingly common, how can we protect our digital identity?
