Today Cloud Identity Summit® (CIS) announced it is now accepting proposals for presentations. The event will be held June 19-22, 2017 in Chicago. The deadline for proposals is January 6, 2017. Visit for more information or to register.

Enterprises need to make security and access more intuitive for their employees, partners and customers in order to protect transactions and facilitate instant engagement. Identity anchors digital businesses as operations scale across cloud, mobile and IoT. The current spotlight on IAM is surfacing new innovations in behavioral authentication, distributed consensus management, smart analytics and malware defense and is ushering in a new era of “Intelligent Identity,” at pace with the world’s most exciting emerging technology trends.

International thought leaders, technical experts and business executives will present research, innovations, case studies, best practices and trends, which are contributing to a future powered by “Intelligent Identity” at the 2017 Cloud Identity Summit. Past speakers include General David Petraeus, Frank Abagnale and representatives from 3M, Amazon Web Services, Department of Homeland Security, GE, Google, Microsoft, Netflix, Salesforce, UK Cabinet Office, Visa, the White House and others.

“This is a moment for the smart -- but really the brave -- to accelerate innovation for the new world before us,” said Andre Durand, CEO, Ping Identity and CIS founder and host. “Identity is regenerating before our eyes to meet the demands of our intelligent environments. The Cloud Identity Summit curates talks from bleeding edge thinkers and futurists alongside in-the-trenches practitioners and executives to push identity breakthroughs into the future.”

CIS sessions will showcase new advancements, use cases and ideas benefiting from identity technology. CIOs, CISOs and experts in identity, cloud, security and mobile technologies along with business owners driving identity-enabled digital transformation and customer identity projects are encouraged to submit presentations around the following topics, in addition to those of general interest to the digital identity and security community:
