Main topic of the EFPE 2021

E-identification & trust services – the future of digital market

The European Forum on Electronic Signature and Trust Services (EFPE) is the largest international conference in Europe dedicated to electronic trust services, including electronic signature and PKI, as well as electronic identification and digital security. For two decades, EFPE has brought together experts and professionals in law, technology and practice in the application of electronic trust services.

EFPE turned out to be an event of particular significance this year. This was a result of discussions held on the EC’s review of the EU Regulation910/2014 (eIDAS1) established in 2014 in terms of its impact on the development of the EU digital market, also in the context of the global market, and the heated debate regarding proposals to introduce and regulate new trust services and electronic identification instruments in an amendment of the eIDAS Regulation.

Just like the last year, the Forum was organized as an online event. This allowed more than 700 representatives of academia, national and local authorities, businesses and international organizations operating in the field of electronic communications from 64 countries to participate in the event in spite of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.The presentations and discussion panels matched the main subject of this year’s Forum, i.e.“e-identification and trust services as the future of the digital economy”, with over 30 experts and practitioners of the global digital market sharing their expertise and opinions.
