On Monday, 16th June, the French start-up Transparency walked away from the FNTC Digital Trust Conference with one of five honours awarded by a top-flight jury.

The inaugural Digital Trust Conference was held in Paris by the Federation of Trusted Third Parties (FNTC) under the auspices of French Secretary of State for Digital Affairs Axelle Lemaire, to create a forum for digital trust and to design new frameworks for the protection of data and electronic transactions in Europe. Other notable participants included the Minister of Finance and the French business confederation MEDEF.
