Shape the Trust Toolkit

Thursday 10 December; 15:30-17:00

August 27 a number of experts and practitioners joined the online collaborative workshop (designed in Miro) to kick-off a series of discussions around the frameworks and requirements for more acceptable technology, data, identity, and privacy practices.

This series continued with 3 more open invitation workshops enabling a deeper dive into each step of the flow from the “Code of Trust” and “Trust by Design” to the “Trust Toolkit”. The output will be further presented and discussed during this seminar and workshop where we will further evaluate the different roles and technical possibilities available to start rebuilding trust in the technology business.

The session will be hosted by Lorna Goulden. We invited Kai Hermsen and Peter Bihr to reflect on the results.
