Paul Ferris

Founder and CEO, ObjectTech Group, UK



Paul Ferris is recognised as a global leader in identity systems and identity technology. He is a respected pioneer in new technology including Blockchain. He is chair of the ISO TC307 Blockchain & DLT international standards working group, and liaison between ISO and ITU-T on Identity.

In 2013 he conceived and ran a collaboration, which brought together many of the top global banks, insurers, legal firms, telcos utilities and crucially, the FCA in 2015.  Working with the participants, a Self-Sovereign Identity System was developed, with a trust framework utilising the blockchain. 

He took the Self-Sovereign Identity process to Dubai and now has an agreement with the Government to provide identity services for the country.  This in turn led to the establishment of a Trusted Traveller program between the main ‘hub’ airports of the world, giving ObjectTech the only realistic sustainable adoption model for identity that can be applied in any country, and by any peoples, rich or poor.
