Government and security industry thought leaders are encouraged to submit proposals to speak at the Secure Technology Alliance’s Securing Federal Identity 2018 conference. Proposals are due by April 13, 2018.
Securing Federal Identity 2018 will be held June 5 and 6 in Washington, D.C.
Speakers will present use cases and educational presentations that focus on current federal government-led cybersecurity policies and future strong authentication and identity management services for enhanced security for physical and network access or trusted identities. The event’s keynotes, roundtables, and panels will cover topics impacting federal identity initiatives including: derived credentials for mobile identity systems and athentication; mobile and cloud identity programs; digital identity proofing and authentication; cybersecurity and identity frameworks; continuous diagnostics and mitigation; advanced biometrics for access security, and; federal PIV use cases for access control.
Government employees are eligible for a limited number of complimentary conference passes, and non-government attendees can receive discounted advanced registration rates. Early-bird discounts are available through April 27, and final discounts end on May 18. Secure Technology Alliance member organizations receive complimentary or discounted registration pricing. The conference is open to all individuals and organizations who wish to learn about the role of secure identity and authentication in government programs.
“The Secure Technology Alliance government security conference is the only place where thought leaders and executives from across the government and security and technology industries come together to get the latest information on pressing issues and emerging technologies and standards impacting identity and authentication in government,” said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance. “Additionally, attendees can learn about the latest technology solutions from exhibitors representing top security vendors to the government market and can take advantage of networking opportunities that are second to none in the identity, credentialing and authentication industry.”
A recent survey conducted by CyberScoop and FedScoop and sponsored by Samsung shows U.S. federal agencies embracing biometrics for endpoint protection, but security gaps persist.
