Identity Visionaries From Google,, Citigroup, Ping Identity and Microsoft to Headline Sixth Annual Cloud Identity Summit 

Fortune 500 Cloud Identity and Security Experts to Share Their Vision for a More Secure, Borderless Enterprise at World’s Leading Identity Event


La Jolla, Calif. — April 8, 2015

Cloud Identity Summit (CIS), the world’s premier identity conference, today unveiled marquee keynotes for the sixth annual event. Experts from Google, Microsoft, Ping Identity, Citigroup and will share their visions for the role of identity in the future of cloud security. The event will be held June 8-11, 2015, at the Hilton Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California.

This year CIS will draw more than 1,000 industry thought leaders, CIOs, CISOs and IT practitioners who are prioritizing identity management in 2015. Mobile and cloud innovations are creating new security challenges that call for a better, more secure approach to identity management. As office walls fade and remote access continues to increase in demand, it’s up to the identity industry to establish a standardized identity solution for businesses large and small.

What keynote speakers and attendees are saying
“With industry experts from vendors and global enterprises in attendance, CIS is a forum to define the architecture of next generation of identity,” said Andre Durand, CEO, Ping Identity. “We’re excited to lay the foundation for identity-based security alongside the most successful enterprises and notable leaders in the identity and security industries.”

“I’m thrilled to be speaking at CIS again this year,” said Ian Glazer, senior director of Identity at “CIS attracts collaborative, passionate individuals who are dedicated to pushing the identity and security community forward. It’s the only event of its kind.”

“CIS offers the rare opportunity to spend a few focused days with peers and experts collaborating on the role identity plays in helping to address some of our most pressing business initiatives,” said Dale Siar, principal security analyst IAM, American Red Cross. “It’s proven to be the can’t-miss security event of the year, every year.”

Ping Identity CEO Andre Durand will kick off the conference with a keynote defining the current state of our connected world and introducing borderless identity as the next frontier of cloud security. He will discuss how cloud security needs to be larger than intrusion detection and threat prevention, and how identity is the gateway to a secure, connected world.

CIS will also feature nearly 100 of the industry’s most respected leaders presenting workshops about real-world IAM deployments; identity mobility and the Internet of Things; upcoming standards, including OpenID Connect, UMA and NAPPS; privacy, governance and identity at consumer scale; and new trends in mobile and continuous authentication and authorization.
