Cloud Identity Summit renamed Identiverse, calls for presentation proposals

December 7, 2017 - 

The Identiverse conference, formerly known as Cloud Identity Summit (CIS), is currently accepting proposals for presentations.

Identiverse will hold its first event under its new name from June 24 to 28, 2018 in Boston. After 8 years of bringing together identity and security industry thought leaders among 2,000 delegates annually, the conference will transition to its new name with 200 sessions and 50 vendors to share market research, innovations, case studies and best practices for the identity and access management stakeholders.

“There’s no question that the many security breaches in 2017 reinforced and proved the value of identity security,” said Andre Durand, Ping Identity CEO and founder of the Identiverse conference. “We’re living in a new reality where enterprises are starting to understand that identity is a must-have, not a nice-to-have. Identiverse provides an opportunity to bring experts and innovators together as we explore a new era in identity and prepare to discuss effective solutions, best practices and more. It’s the event to attend if you want learn about and advance your identity security efforts.”

In addition to subjects of general interest to the digital identity and security community, proposals are sought for topics including: modern and future identity management, protocols and standards; customer and consumer identity including CIAM and self-sovereign identity; security and identity including cloud security, biometrics, and data loss prevention; mobile identity, enterprise mobility management and internet of things (consumer and industrial); enterprise identity; privacy, policy, and governance including identity risk and fraud; identity for developers; identity applications in general enterprise, and in particular healthcare, government, manufacturing, financial services, education, and retail; and professional skills development.

The deadline for proposal submissions is January 12.
