Computing on Encrypted Data the series continued
Computing on encrypted data is an activity by LSEC together with KU Leuven supported by the Flemish Government (VLAIO) to facilitate the uptake and use of techologies allowing to innovate with data encryption. The aim is mainly to promote the use of Secure Multiparty Computation and Fully Homomorphic Encryption, amongst other technologies. This activity started at the end of 2020 with inspirational seminars and collective innovation support of security technology companies in Flanders.
In COED we'll continue to identify, support and disseminate existing and up and comping use cases, and support companies trying to implement the technologies in their innovative products and services, or companies as end users trying to protect and compute on the personal data of their employees, partners and customers; or on industrial shared data.
Please visit the up and coming series of events, starting again on March 30th as a webinar, kicking off with Microsoft on Confidential Computing.
