Kantara Initiative and EEMA Sign Memorandum of Understanding

Nov 21, 2016


Kantara Initiative and the European Association for E-identity and Security (EEMA) announced  that they executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at a signing ceremony at the Information Security Solutions Europe (ISSE) “Securing Future European Business” Innovation Expo in Paris.

The MOU will enable member collaboration and knowledge sharing by bringing together the complementary strengths that each organization has developed for the betterment of the Digital Economy. Kantara develops innovative Trust Framework components and programs in the identity and personal data management space for digital identity transformation. EEMA is an independent not for profit, European think tank focusing on identification, authentication, privacy, risk management, cyber security, the Internet of Things and mobile applications.

The purpose of the MOU is to formally recognize the existing common aims and juxtapositions of the two organizations as well as to be supportive of each other for mutual and wider collective benefit. The two groups will share relevant market, research, and technical information, and other content that each organization would otherwise provide only to its own members and/or participants, and will participate in each other's working groups and committees. Also, Kantara and EEMA will carry out additional cross-organization outreach, initiatives, and activities that may be agreed to in future.
