Ellucian Live 2022 – Protecting Degrees with Blockchain Credentials


Advanced Secure Technologies have recently exhibited at Ellucian Live 2022. The opportunity to once again meet face to face with HE delegates from around the world felt great.

This year, we discussed degree fraud challenges and best practices for securing credentials for the higher education sector. In doing so, we demonstrated how our blockchain credential solutions help universities protect degrees from fraud whilst ensuring high-level protection for the university’s brand and reputation.

We also had a bit of fun with our prize draw. Using a practice called steganography, delegates were tasked with finding our hidden message which provided the answers to our questionnaire. From the number of entries received and the answers captured, we can tell everyone enjoyed the challenge.
