Cloud Identity Summit Announces Record Breaking Attendance at 2017 Unveils Identiverse
Chicago — June 27, 2017
Cloud Identity Summit (CIS), the world’s premier identity conference, today announced highlights of the 2017 event and plans for the next iteration of Cloud Identity Summit, to be called “Identiverse” 2018 in Boston. More than 1,500 attendees shared their perspectives on rapidly evolving trends and best practices around topics – such as intelligent identity, the Internet of Things, standards adoption and mobility – that catalyzed this watershed moment for the identity industry.
“We’re defining a new era of security through our collective efforts and focus on the future of identity,” said Andre Durand, CIS host and Ping Identity CEO and founder. "The modern enterprise manages data reaching far beyond the walls of its office buildings. Mobility, IoT and cloud, combined with rising customer expectations and regulations related to privacy and user experience, are driving the evolution of intelligent digital identity. CIS is evolving in lockstep with the industry, expanding beyond cloud to include everything identity-related. Starting in 2018, CIS will be known as Identiverse; reflecting the growing breadth and influence of our industry and community of Identity professionals."
Below are a few of the key themes that sparked lively discussions and debates during CIS 2017:
CIS featured more than 150 notable sessions and speakers, with keynote presentations from some of the world’s most influential software and cloud companies and other widely-recognized thought leaders from companies such as Aetna, Capital One, Comcast and GE.
