    The use of digital signatures is common place in the private sector, commercial transactions, and even when applying to universities. But how can public procurement transition away from the pen to implementing and taking advantage of the efficiencies available using digital signatures? This session will provide you with an overview of the different types of digital signatures/certificates, the methods and technology solutions available, and, most importantly, the requirements that make digital signatures legally binding.


    After completing this online training session, learners will be able to:

    1. Know the enabling legislation for the use of digital signatures,
    2. Understand what makes a digital signature binding, and
    3. Be aware of the digital signature methods and solutions in the market.
