certSIGN: Strengthening confidence in digital services through security
Security is an essential element in enhancing customer confidence in digital services in any sector of activity – including financial and banking. For that reason, Adrian Floarea (CEO CertSIGN) has highlighted – in his presentation „Building trust in digital services” – the key issues a player in the field has to take into account.
Over 12 years of activity have taught us that in order to be trustworthy, innovation in the products and services offered is not enough. This should be complemented by the pursuit of national / international regulatory and security regulations, the anticipation of trends, to the level of involvement in defining them.
In this context, certSIGN has become an official member of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and is actively involved in the development of IT standards with a global network of technology experts dedicated to e-signature in cloud, in accordance with EIDAS regulation. The certSIGN experience and this new quality obtained in 2018 allowed us to share with IDC Financial Forum participants how contributing to the development of security standards is an invisible component of an interaction that customers can trust.
