Warren, NJ (PRWEB) October 13, 2015

Accreditrust, the first secure digital credential processing company and creators of the TrueCred™ Digital Credential Processing Suite, has been selected as a top innovative company in the areas of hiring, training and competency-based credentialing to showcase its technology at the Employment Tech Explosion portion of the Close IT Summit in Washington, DC from October 13-15. GSV and Innovate+Educate are conference co-hosts.

“This is an exciting time for employment technology, as there are so many new opportunities to impact how people represent their skills, credentials and certifications,” said Accreditrust CEO Eric Korb. “As education credentials such as diplomas, degrees and professional certifications have been shifting from paper to digital certificates (PDFs) to online profiles in recent years, the methods of verifying them haven’t kept up.” Korb continued, “This is a fundamental part of the puzzle that accompanies innovation.”

“Internet standards for credential security and processing have not kept pace with the way hiring managers use the Internet today to verify a candidate’s published capabilities. This is certainly true in the digital credentials space, which Accreditrust is addressing with technology leaders at the W3C’s Credential Community Group (http://www.w3.org/community/credentials),” Korb said. “Standards-based digital credentials, often represented as badges, are addressing the need for delivering verifiable proof of one’s accomplishments.”

Korb elaborated, “Candidates and employers now benefit from greater efficiency by processing workforce credentials over the Internet, but with Internet fraud so prevalent, employers need a way to ensure that the high stakes credentials they review are authentic and trustworthy. TrueCred™ allows employers to make hiring decisions with confidence.”

When data breaches are in the news constantly, and so-called degree mills are pumping out fake credentials, many employers are asking how they can trust digital credentials. “Ensuring digital credential security and interoperability are mission-critical activities, and we’re addressing them head-on with our TrueCred™ platform. We are thrilled to share information about our unique solution at the Close IT Summit,” said Korb.

TrueCred™ uses proven cryptography to ensure that digital credentials are tamper-proof. Hiring managers can now independently verify credentials, providing peace of mind that they are making decisions based upon verified information. “We’re excited about showcasing how our technology provides a stronger, more secure digital credential ecosystem to employers,” said Korb.

In April of this year, Accreditrust presented at GSV’s premier conference at Arizona State University and was named by the EdTech website gettingsmart.com as a Top 10 High-Impact Education Tech Enterprise out of a total of 300 presenting companies.
