Attendees Learn the Latest in eSignatures and Records, Authentication and Security at ESRA’s eSignRecords2015 Conference

This year marks the 15th anniversary of the Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce (ESIGN) Act and members of the Electronic Signature and Records Association (ESRA), the premier trade association representing electronic signature adopters and providers, played a key role in its enactment.

During a recent conference in New York, members reflected on what has been accomplished since the passage of this law in 2000 and what the future of eSignatures and records holds.

“In addition to the networking opportunities and knowledge sharing with industry peers, this is one of the most informative conferences available that offers a wealth of information on electronic records and signatures and their role in the future evolution of business interactions”

Several companies attended the conference, including representatives from Wells Fargo, Bank of America, USAA, Adobe, BuckleySandler LLP, Equifax, DocuSign, AssureSign, Wolters Kluwer, Level One Bank, ADP and Ellie Mae to name a few. Attendees heard the latest updates on several advancements and trends in digital transaction management. Some key highlights include:

 - A legal briefing from the Honorable Paul W. Grimm, district judge at U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland;

 - How the Americans with Disabilities Act covers digital accessibility;

 - Mobile implementation of eSignatures;

 - Best practices for digital record management;

 - How privacy and security are different; and what companies need to know to ensure both are effectively managed to protect data; and

 - The latest in Bitcoin and the digital identity management around the BlockChain.

“In addition to the networking opportunities and knowledge sharing with industry peers, this is one of the most informative conferences available that offers a wealth of information on electronic records and signatures and their role in the future evolution of business interactions,” said Jeff Knott, chairman of ESRA and assistant vice president at Equifax.

“When you leave our conference, you are inspired to incorporate the knowledge gained in your continued efforts to improve processes and introduce new initiatives within your company.”

ESRA’s Winter Member Meeting is scheduled for Wed., Feb. 24, in San Jose, Calif. Members will gather to cover best practices and trends for the world of eSignatures and digital records. The agenda includes regulatory updates, international insights, technology trends and public policy updates.

“Our goal is always to provide the latest information regarding eSignatures and records from many different lines of business, including automotive, insurance and financial,” said David Brinkman, CEO of AssureSign and ESRA’s 2015 conference chairman.

“The challenges and best practices we share will eventually affect most of our lives on a daily basis, which gives us even more passion to be a part of improvements.”
