Each year around this time, Identiverse attendees start digging into the agenda to plan out the sessions they want to attend. With such a strong list of high-caliber speakers and intriguing topics, it’s not an easy task—especially considering that Identiverse offers a year’s worth of learning in four short days.
To help make it a little easier, we want to highlight some of the must-attend keynotes, sessions and master classes that the Ping Identity crew will be presenting. Of course, this is just a sampling, but hopefully it’ll help you identify topics you find most compelling, while opening up some flexibility in the rest of your schedule.
Grab your calendar. Here you go:
