Geneva, Switzerland (ots) - The OISTE Foundation is participating in the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) Forum by coordinating a thematic workshop at this year's event.

The OISTE Foundation is committed to finding workable solutions to digital identity management as an essential ingredient of a knowledge society. OISTE led the workshop titled "Matching the speed of the running code: public awareness and digital identity management", intended to create awareness among Internet users about the risks of the present environment and the threats to individual privacy rights.
Confidence among users is at the core of OISTE's Trust Model, striving for the legitimacy that will only be achieved by an informed consensus. As part of its compliance with the OISTE Foundation Trust Model, the foundation is bound to promote the security of electronic communications worldwide, ensuring compliance with regulations related to information protection.
