The Congrès international sur les opportunités et les défis des technologies émergentes (unofficial translation: The International congress on opportunities and challenges for emerging technologies) was organized by ISACA Quebec and was held from October 6 to 9 in Quebec City. Several In-Sec-M members were present, including Nicolas Duguay, our Business Development Director.
Issues surrounding digital identities are being increasingly addressed, as illustrated by the digital identity roundtable that In-Sec-M helped organize. Moderated by Joni Brennan, President of the Digital ID & Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC), a panel of experts exchanged views on the concept of a self-sovereign identity ecosystem and its application in Quebec. The panel consisted of David Bissessar of Becker Carroll, Patrick Cormier from Norarius and Pierre A. Roberge, an expert in innovation and digital identities.
Founded in 1984, ISACA-Québec offers its 200 members from the Quebec City’s professional community and university community an annual program of conferences, training and networking activities. During the event there were several presentations given by high-level speakers recognized for their expertise in areas such as quantum computing, artificial intelligence, decentralized registers (block chains) and cyber defence.
