Identiverse Content Countdown Series, Part 6: Agenda Highlights Recap

If you’ve kept track of this Identiverse content series, you might recall me saying in the first blog, “Keep in mind, these blogs aren’t intended to be extensive lists, so if you’re building your agenda or making a final decision whether to attend this year, check out the full agenda online.”

Well, I wasn’t lying. We have over 200 sessions and master classes, plus our Expo Hall—which this year incorporates the solutions theater showcasing quick demos and updates from a range of leading IAM vendors. And really, that’s just the beginning.

Here are a few other highlights from the agenda that we haven’t mentioned yet, that you might want to check out:

A full customer IAM (CIAM) track, including:

  • Hu: The Missing Element | June 25, 9:30-9:55am | Nishant Kaushik, CTO at Uniken
  • Choosing the Right Consumer IAM Solution | June 25, 10:05-10:30am | Mary Ruddy, Research VP at Gartner

A full enterprise identity track, plus several other relevant sessions, including:

We’ll also be covering identity in financial services (including technical and business panels focusing on Open Banking) and identity in healthcare, higher education and more! Also, be sure not to miss master classes on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, many featuring in-depth practical demonstrations from key IAM vendors along with real-world examples of deployment solutions and architectures (including multiple-product integrations).

All the sessions and master classes at Identiverse are curated by a team of subject matter experts from all across the industry. And with so much going on in the world of identity and security, our agenda has never been more comprehensive.
