Halon invited as speaker to ETIS Community Gathering 2017


Each year the ETIS Community Gathering brings together European telecommunication professionals to share knowledge and best practices in a trusted environment. The theme of the ETIS Community Gathering 2017 is ‘Shaping the Digital Ecosystem of the Future’.

Halon co-founder Jonas Falck will be speaking about DANE, SMTP STS and more, together with senior software engineer Erik Lax.

Erik Lax

The meeting is this year held on October 5-6 in Tallinn, Estonia. ETIS believes that Estonia, the first country to allow online voting in a general election, is a perfect place for a debate on the ‘Digital Ecosystem of the Future’, and we agree. It has the world’s fastest broadband speeds and holds the record for start-ups per person.

Its 1.3 Million citizens pay with their mobile phones, have their health records stored in the digital cloud, and file their annual tax return online in 5 min. Moreover Estonia will be holding the presidency of the EU council in the second half of 2017. Therefore ETIS invites relevant parties and start-ups to discuss lessons learned in e-Estonia.
