Cloud Identity Summit Announces 2016 Call for Presentations 

Leading Industry Conference for Identity Security Assembles in New Orleans June 6-9, 2016


New Orleans, LA — December 17, 2015

Today Cloud Identity Summit® (CIS) announced that it is now accepting proposals for presentations. The event will be held June 6-9, 2016 at the New Orleans Marriott.

Businesses and their customers expect a personalized, convenient and secure digital experience. In order for this to be achieved, intelligent identity must be incorporated throughout the enterprise. This effort begins a new chapter for identity and security. CIS is the world’s premier identity conference, featuring presentations from technology industry experts about the latest innovations, best practices and trends in identity. This year, the event will bring together thought leaders, CIOs, architects and IT practitioners to discuss issues related to the event’s theme “r/evolution of security: it starts with identity.” Past speakers include executives from Amazon Web Services, CitiGroup, GE, Google, Microsoft, Salesforce and VMware.

“As enterprises confront the realities of defending their networks and data across mobile, cloud, and IoT fronts, it’s becoming increasingly clear that it starts with identity,” said Andre Durand, CEO, Ping Identity and CIS host. “The Summit unites the smartest thinkers and practitioners in the industry who know there’s a steel thread which keeps platforms secure: identity and access. Together, we’re defining a new era of cloud dexterity —  the Cloud Identity Summit is where these breakthroughs form.”

CIS sessions will showcase new advancements, use cases and ideas that are benefiting from identity technology in enterprise and consumer applications. CIOs, CISOs and experts in identity, cloud, security and mobile technologies are encouraged to submit presentations around the following topics, in addition to those of general interest to the digital identity and security community:


  • Identity’s role in securing and enabling a modern, mobile workforce
  • How to enable security without sacrificing user experience
  • Best practice for implementing a modern identity architecture
  • How to leverage identity to secure both hybrid and pure cloud environments
  • How cyber policy and regulation is impacting business agility

  • Advancements in identity standards to enable identity security at scale
  • How mult-factor, contextual and biometric authentication are changing the game
  • How the federation of identity is enabling security at scale for business ecosystems
  • Secure development, API protections and identity-driven security architecture
