Identiverse Content Countdown Series

Part 6: Rounding It Up

With Identiverse 2019 kicking off next week, it’s time to start planning your personal schedule for the conference. Which sessions will you attend in person, and which will you review after the event is over? With hundreds of hours of high-quality, curated content packed into four days, making those choices can be difficult. Hopefully this blog series has helped you form a more complete view of the entire agenda, so you can make your selections a little more easily.  And don’t forget, we record nearly every session, master class and keynote so you don’t really need to worry about missing presentations you want to attend.

Do remember to check out the detailed agenda online and in the mobile app (if you haven’t installed it yet, it’s available now via the Apple Store and the Google Play Store). You can filter the agenda to view the major topic areas, and you can also get details on all this year’s presenters. The mobile app also offers a wealth of additional information to help you get the most out of your time in Washington, D.C. Our full conference agenda starts bright and early on the morning of Tuesday, June 25, and runs through to our closing keynote at lunchtime on Friday the 28th. Plan your travel accordingly!

One of the downsides of my responsibilities during the week is that I rarely get to attend sessions in person (although I have had the pleasure of reviewing all the material together with our content committee and track leads as part of our content review cycle). However, if I was able to, I thought it’d be fun to share my wishlist with you. In no particular order, here are a few sessions and master classes which, for a variety of reasons, I’d personally be particularly keen to attend:

  • The Developer’s Guide to the Policy-driven Authorization (or How to Make the Right Decision 100% of the Time) – David Brossard
  • Surviving API Security in a Microservices World – Michele Leroux Bustamante
  • Access Management for SAML-enabled Vendor Applications – Namitha Krishna
  • Privileged Access Management – Getting Started Using Open Source and Community Edition Software – Ken Robertson
  • BYOIDaaS: Automating IAM Infrastructure and Operations – Jon Lehtinen
  • PSD2, SCA, WTF – Kelley Robinson
  • Frictionless ID Verification – Frank Villavicencio
  • The Future of Session Management – Pamela Dingle
  • Identities for Everything: Infrastructure, Ephemeral, Stacked and Asserted Resource Principal Patterns – Norka Lucena
  • How to Train an Identity Engineer – Alyssa Kelber
  • Active Listening – Andrew Chantaphone
  • Identity Jedi – David Lee

I’ll take this opportunity to offer my gratitude to this year’s content committee whose efforts are crucial in ensuring that we continue to meet the quality standard we’ve set for our agenda over the past 10 years. And of course, I’m grateful to all of this year’s Identiverse presenters, without whose contributions the conference simply wouldn’t exist.

I may not get to attend most of the sessions, but I do get to sit in on all of the keynote addresses. So to round things up, here they are summarized in full. Well… I say in full, but you never know, we might still have a few surprises this year!

  • Opening Keynote – Andre Durand
  • Guest Keynote – Bill Foster
  • Next-generation IDM: Managing Identities for People – Andrew Nash
  • Building Identity Professionals – Sarah Squire and Heather Flanagan
  • Digital Identity – A Strategic Imperative – Grant Schnider
  • Standards: The Bedrock of Identity – panel moderated by Pam Dingle and featuring Annabelle Backman, Vittorio Bertocci, John Bradley, Kim Cameron and Brian Campbell
  • The Next Wave of Identity Standards – Alex Simons
  • Closing Keynote: A Conversation with Steve Wozniak
  • Closing Address – Andre Durand

Remember: Your full conference pass to Identiverse includes access to all our great keynotes, sessions and master classes, which are all thoughtfully curated by a content committee comprised of subject-matter experts from across the industry. Plus, you also get priority access to recordings of all the sessions! And to top it off you can also claim CPE credits for your (ISC)2 certifications, or your IAPP CIPM and CIPT for attending Identiverse.

And that’s it! If you haven’t done so already, there may be just enough time to register to join us June 25-28 in Washington, D.C. I look forward to seeing you there!
