TrueCred CEO, Eric Korb, Selected as a Panelist to Speak at Close IT Summit: Shift in Employment Training Solutions Require Better Digital Credentials

Eric Korb, CEO of Accreditrust Technologies, LLC, the first secure digital credential processing company and creators of the TrueCred™ Digital Credential Processing Suite, has been selected to speak on a panel discussing the shift in traditional training assessments to competency-based training alongside Lynda.com and Knewton at the Close IT Summit in Dallas, Texas from October 4-6.

“Candidates and employers now benefit from greater efficiency by processing workforce credentials over the Internet, but with online fraud so prevalent, employers need a way to ensure the work related credentials they issue and review are authentic and trustworthy. Our TrueCred™ digital credential processing solution adds trust, which reduces risk for employer when making hiring decisions,” said Accreditrust CEO Eric Korb. “Personal credentials, such as diplomas, degrees, and professional certifications, have been shifting from paper to digital credentials in recent years, but the methods of verifying them haven’t kept up.” Korb continued, “This is a fundamental part of the puzzle that drives our innovation: The rapid shift to generating trustworthy digital credentials. Our eTranscript Processor Solution combines the portability of our TrueCred™ credentials with private, digitally signed eTranscripts. This solution allows TrueCred™ holders to deliver extensive detail regarding their learning progress and achievements, offering employers unparalleled depth and insights, compared to traditional measurement methodologies, for evaluating a worker’s job skills and competencies,” said Korb.

“Badges, have recently been touted as delivering proof of one’s accomplishments,” said Korb. However, with data breaches constantly in the news and degree mills pumping out fake credentials, many decisions makers are asking how they can trust what they see posted online. “Ensuring digital credential trust, security and interoperability are all at the core of the TrueCred™ platform. We are thrilled to discuss how our unique technology blends with solutions my co-panelists at this year’s Close IT Summit in Innovation Strand #4 on Wednesday, October 5th” said Korb.

TrueCred™ uses proven cryptography to ensure that digital credentials are tamper-proof. Hiring managers can now independently verify TrueCred credentials, providing peace of mind that they are making informed decisions based upon trustworthy information. “We’re excited about being selected to demonstrate our technology at the Close IT Showcase in the Reunion Ballroom and Foyer at Hyatt Regency Reunion Tower,” said Korb.

TrueCred™ delivers a stronger, more secure digital credential ecosystem for credential issuers, holders, and employers.
