The Facebook-sponsored event, with the Salesforce’s Chief Technology Officer Dr. Taher Elgamal as the keynote speaker, enables multiple parties – each holding their own private data – to compute a function without requiring the parties to disclose their private data to anyone. One of the most popular applications for MPC is for securing digital assets and the alliance has become the standard for institutions looking to secure their assets while retaining fast and easy access to them.
The Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology to significantly increase data security and data privacy will be the theme of a year-long series of events, The MPC Data Privacy & Security Conference, which kicks off on the 26th of October 2021.
President of MPC Alliance Frank Wiener said, “MPC is rapidly transitioning from early adopters to mainstream application, with hundreds of companies deploying MPC-based products and services over the past year alone. This includes some of the world’s largest financial service firms, social media platforms, online advertising providers, some of the largest technology companies, research organisations, healthcare providers, and more.
“We see this conference as an opportunity to showcase where and how MPC is being applied today to solve mission critical problems so that enterprises and institutions globally begin including MPC as part of the arsenal of tools to maintain security and privacy”, Mr Wiener continued.
BrightTalk will host the live event with a mix of streaming sessions, live networking, breakout virtual meeting rooms, and on-demand content. The conference series will include a series of live event sessions throughout 2022, with an expanding portfolio of on-demand recordings of prior live event sessions, and a library of MPC related tutorials, webinars, workshops, demonstrations and more.
The virtual conference is free to attend.
