Identiverse Content Countdown Series

Part 5: Government, Healthcare and Financial Services

Specific industry sectors have specific requirements. Understanding the impact and implications of these is, of course, vital to practitioners working within these sectors. But there’s a lot that the wider industry can learn from their efforts. In this blog, I’ll cover three sectors that are often featured at Identiverse—and 2019 is no exception. And these sectors tend to have broader relevance across other industries.

Government Identity

This tends to fall into three categories: General policy, including regulatory regimes and national verified identity/attribute schemes; internal identity management; and government-to-citizen services. This year’s government track at Identiverse will touch on all three with sessions like these:

  • Securing the Nation’s Most Sensitive Assets | June 27, 16:25-16:50 ET | Frank Briguglio, Public Sector Identity Governance Strategist at Sailpoint and Ross Foard, Security Architect at U.S. Department of Homeland Security
  • Why Governments Are Still Important Even in a Self-sovereign Context | June 27, 17:00-17:25 ET | Adam Cooper, Director at Next ID Limited
  • Developing World Identity | June 27, 17:35-18:15 ET | Panel moderated by Jeremy Grant, Managing Director of Technology Business Strategy at Venable LLP
  • Modernizing the Government Experience with Smart Identity Solutions | June 28, 8:30-9:20 ET | Panel moderated by Blake Hall, CEO at

  • Guest Keynote | June 27, 08:45-09:00 ET |Grant Schneider, U.S. Federal CISO

Healthcare Identity

This presents some particularly interesting identity challenges, especially in the areas of consent, delegation and break-the-glass scenarios. Developments in these areas and more are rapidly becoming generally important:

  • Digital Identity in Healthcare | June 26, 16:00-16:25 ET | Alex Kontur
  • Authentication and Authorization in a Microservices World | June 25, 16:35-17:00 ET | Carlos Garcia, Senior Principal Architect at Optum

  • A Protected Digital Identity for the Healthcare Sector | June 27, 10:30-11:20 ET |  Panel moderated by Catherine Schulten, Principal Product Manager at AllClear ID

Financial Services Identity

This sector has seen an explosion of innovation and development, occasioned in part by the growth of open banking, and in part by an increasing interest in the provision of identity services:

  • Open Banking Around the World—Where Are We and What Have We Learned? | June 27, 14:35-15:00 ET | Mark Perry, APAC CTO at Ping Identity
  • Delivering a Trusted Digital Identity System | June 25, 16:40-17:05 ET | Charles Walton, SVP of Digital Identity at Mastercard

  • Open Banking Explained | June 27,17:00-17:50 ET | Panel moderated by Don Thibeau, President and Chairman at Open Identity Exchange
