Let’s talk about digital identity with Monique Morrow, President and Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet and President at the VETRI Foundation.
We’re very excited to kick off #LTADI 2020 with Monique Morrow, multi-hyphen technology innovator and a Forbes Magazine’s top 50 women globally in tech.
“2020 is going to be the year for digital identity and, even more so, self-sovereign identity”
In episode 13, Oscar and Monique discuss her route to digital identity, ethics in technology and credentialing, self-sovereign identity (SSI), and the various interesting projects that she is involved with.
Monique is President and Co-Founder of the Humanized Internet, a non-profit organisation focused on addressing the need to control our identities as well as providing digital identity for those individuals most underserved. The belief in the social good of technology with embedded ethics has guided Monique’s extensive work with blockchain, especially its applicability to education and credentialing as well as other industries including healthcare, insurance, and Internet of things.

Monique is also President of the VETRI Foundation in Switzerland. The main purpose of the Foundation is to manage a platform presently known as VETRI and the funding, establishment and execution of initiatives that are focused on the management and control of data and privacy. The Foundation abides by the key tenets of “Trust and Transparency”. The vision is to enable individuals to self-determine over their data. This alignment translates to assessing possible investments and activities towards secure self-sovereignty and secure e-vault mechanisms for the management and storage of data.

Much of Monique’s work operates at the intersection between blockchain technology, security-privacy issues, questions of legal jurisdiction, and portfolio development. She has had the opportunity to engage with and explore these issues in her capacity as a member of the procivis.ch and VETRI ’Global advisory boards based in Switzerland . Furthermore, she is also an active member of the IEEE Ethics in Action Executive Committee as well as Co-Chair of the IEEE Ethics in Action Extended Reality Committee.
