Sixth Annual Cloud Identity Summit Announces Dynamic Workshops and Innovative Speaking Sessions


Denver, Colo. — March 18, 2015

Ping Identity, The Identity Security Company™, today unveiled a dynamic, must-see lineup of workshops and speaking sessions for the sixth annual 2015 Cloud Identity Summit, the world’s premier identity conference. Executives from industry leading companies including Google, Microsoft, Ping Identity, Amazon Web Services, Radiant Logic and Salesforce will be headlining the event, introducing the newest trends and best practices in cloud identity management. The event will be held June 8-11, 2015, at the Hilton Torrey Pines in La Jolla, California.

With more than 1,000 attendees expected, the conference is the most anticipated identity event of the year, addressing today’s hot topics and innovations in identity security. As the next generation of infrastructure moves from legacy applications to the cloud, identity-related technologies have become a critical layer for enterprise cloud companies. At the same time, advancements in connected technologies are calling for identity-based solutions with the potential to standardize secure and convenient access for the masses.  

“This year’s Cloud Identity Summit comes at a critical time for cybersecurity experts and cloud enterprise companies,” said Andre Durand, CEO and founder, Ping Identity. “As cloud security and identity management is top of mind for every business and executive, it’s imperative that identity experts join forces and work together for a more secure future through identity. At CIS, we are excited to bring major industry players together to do just that.”

“Cloud Identity Summit is the preeminent conference for learning identity best practices from industry experts, including Google, Microsoft, Ping Identity and others,” said Eric Sachs, Product Management Director, Identity at Google. “We look forward to hosting a Google workshop to share our insights on how to build a comprehensive cloud identity strategy for today’s modern enterprise.”

Cloud Identity Summit offers 12 immersive workshops geared toward security practitioners at all levels. Attendees will gain an “under the hood” view of mobile applications using OpenID Connect standards that rely on various profiles to deepen understanding of the protocol and its uses. Additionally, attendees will be exposed to identity standards use cases within OIDC, OAuth, SAML, FIDO, SCIM and UMA, and will learn how they are evolving to meet future needs in their respective areas. Additional workshops will feature demonstrations by Ping Identity, NSTIC, Google, Radiant Logic, AWS, Centrify, Syntegrity and Microsoft.

In addition to hands-on workshops, CIS will feature nearly 100 of the industry’s most respected leaders presenting on a variety of topics that are top of mind for CIOs, identity practitioners and experts, including:
