Mobile Ecosystem Forum joins European Trust Foundation

05/04/17

EEMA, the think tank focussed on identification, authentication, privacy, risk management, cyber security, the Internet of Things and mobile applications, has announced that the Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF) global trade body has joined the European Trust Foundation.

Launched in The Hague in 2016, The European Trust Foundation is an independent body working with governments, corporates, trade associations, SME bodies and others within and outside the EU, to strengthen digital trust throughout Europe. It is coordinated by EEMA and includes 12 non-vendor members – EEMA, ESI, IDnext, Kantara Initiative, LSEC, MEF, Norstella, OpenSignature, PIMN, SSEDIC2020, TDL and Vendorcom.

MEF acts as an impartial champion for addressing issues affecting the broadening mobile ecosystem. Its goal is to accelerate the growth of mobile sustainability, driving inclusion for all and the delivery of trusted services that enrich the lives of consumers worldwide. It launched a cross-sector Consumer Trust Working Group in 2012 and its annual global consumer study of the impact of trust is now in its fifth year.

“Building consumer trust is fundamental to driving engagement and creating long-lasting valued relationships with today’s mobile consumers,” says Rimma Perelmuter, CEO, MEF. “MEF’s Global Consumer Trust Initiative takes a cross-ecosystem approach to accelerating good stewardship and driving innovation in privacy and security in order to build trust and drive mobile adoption.

He adds: “We are delighted to participate in the European Trust Foundation. By assembling many of the most influential industry associations, the Foundation is ideally placed to strengthen digital trust, and we look forward to a fruitful collaboration.”

Chair of EEMA, Jon Shamah adds: “We are pleased to welcome MEF to the European Trust Foundation. Its global presence and wealth of mobile expertise working across developed and growth markets, coupled with its insights on issues of trust from a consumer perspective is invaluable.”
