Digi.me is a long time supporter of the MyData movement. They aim to let personal data do amazing things by bringing it together into one place instead of being scattered across the web. Their innovative app unlocks the power of personal data for both businesses and users – Digi.me is looking to speak to companies and Government bodies who want to do more with data.
Digi.me is amongst the leaders of the new personal data economy, but each year, at this conference, we learn so much that is new, that is thought-provoking and that helps us address the challenges we are solving.

What will your MyData Online 2020 presentation be about?
Julian is co-hosting the session on Friday 10 December at 00:45 – 02:15 (UTC+0) titled “Covid Apps – is Privacy Possible?” and as part of that he will be presenting how the MyData approach can give total privacy by using digi.me’s app Consentry as an example.
There will be a discussion on lessons learned and how to apply these for Covid apps, and more generally in the future to the developing MyData ecosystem and whether these lessons are generally applicable beyond Covid.
Why did you decide to partner with this unique conference? What’s the added value?
This conference brings together the best of the future regarding personal data, but not only the future – it also highlights what is available today; how that future is here now. If you use or need to use personal data and identity there is no better place to discover the new value that you can create now and go forwards.
What are you looking forward to most about the conference?
The unexpected. Digi.me is amongst the leaders of the new personal data economy, but each year, at this conference, we learn so much that is new, that is thought-provoking and that helps us address the challenges we are solving.
How has Covid-19 changed the MyData landscape?
Covid-19 has emphasised the need for privacy when sharing data (track & trace apps), but also the benefits of sharing personal data when trusted (millions of people sharing self-assessments for researchers to understand Covid-19).
