People, applications and devices are gravitating toward a digital world where they all recognize and interact with each other. This digital world is being built on a foundation of identity security designed by a community of people with a shared vision, from technologists and practitioners to thought leaders and end users. This is the identiverse. What started ten years ago as the Cloud Identity Summit has evolved to something much bigger. It lives and breathes every day. And once a year it really shines. It summons the brightest minds in identity and security to gather and share the tools, technology and best practices that are built for today and the future. The identiverse positions enterprises to realize the full potential of a digital economy—one where identity unlocks uncompromising digital experiences that are secure and seamless for everyone.
- Is Identiverse replacing Cloud Identity Summit?
Yes and no. Identiverse is actually more than just a name change for Cloud Identity Summit. It’s a major evolutionary step for an event that started as a small gathering of identity industry professionals and leaders in Keystone, CO back in 2010. By the time we reached Chicago in 2017, CIS had grown into the premier identity and security event, reflecting the growth of the industry by covering topics beyond just cloud identity. Our growing community of delegates, speakers and sponsors told us that we needed to embrace this evolution. So on June 21, 2017 our founder, Andre Durand, announced the new Identiverse name during his keynote in Chicago (watch the announcement here). So yes, Identiverse is our new name, but CIS will live on in the core of what we do. We’ll continue to grow as an event and as a year-round community, and we’ll continue to anchor the identity industry with high-quality, vendor-neutral content, compelling keynotes, in-depth technical workshops and master classes, and unrivaled access to the best vendors across the industry.
- What's included in the full summit pass?
The full pass includes attendance for every day of Identiverse, with access to all keynotes, sessions and master classes; daily breakfasts and lunches; and our opening evening reception and closing party.
Identiverse is an unparalleled event, known for unequaled content, exciting speakers, one-of-a-kind evening events, hours of networking and sponsors from leading identity and security companies. We also include a special program for our family guests who are always welcome, and we pride ourselves on our many traditions that make our conference unique, like a morning bootcamp with Navy SEALS. It’s more than a conference…it’s an experience you’ll never forget, and you’ll walk away with a wealth of industry knowledge at the end of the week. Join us at Identiverse—an event and a community like no other!
