Join our CEO Peter Ferry on 15th June at Digital Leaders Week to learn how better data architecture can reduce fraud and improve citizen experience.

About this Talk

Collaboration is key to effectively running public sector services, but it can be complex and time-consuming. This leaves local authorities at risk of fraud, and fraud doesn’t come cheap. Costs to resolve issues are expensive and laborious.

However, there is an existing solution that vastly reduces the risk of fraud that local authorities are facing: its name is Digital Ledger Technology (also known as DLT).

Come along to this session to learn: – How DLT can aid with fraud prevention for and between local authorities – The opportunities for secure distributed technology in improving citizen experience – Examples of smarter data architectures
