Global Identity Summit 2016

The annual Global Identity Summit, organized by the U.S. Federal Government, brings together leaders from government, the private sector, and academia to discuss shared challenges, strategies, and solutions in the dynamic and constantly expanding field of identity. 

For 2016, the Center for Identity is helping to organize and participate in two engaging sessions. Each session will feature presentations from a industry experts, panel discussions, and audience Q&A.

We hope you will join us for both!

Identity Workforce Education — Wednesday 9/21, 2pm - 5pm ET. Room 15-16

Moderator: Katie Stephens, Director of Professional Education, the Center for Identity

The rapid rise of Big Data, the growth of the Internet of Things, and advances in Biometric Technologies have all created a need for a workforce prepared to deal with new and rapidly evolving identity management challenges. This session will explore the topic of the identity workforce by examining the current state and size of that workforce, the expected growth of jobs utilizing identity management skills, and the educational needs required to prepare those currently in and moving into that workforce.

Identity as an Asset — Thursday 9/22, 9:45, 9:45-11:30pm ET, and 1:45-2:45pm ET, Room 15-16. 

Moderator: Colin Carvey, Vice-President of Identity Solutions, TransUnion

If identity is in fact "the new currency" as many industry experts are fond of saying, then a great deal of work needs to be done to define and establish the parameters for determining the value of specific types of personally identifiable information, or PII. 

This session will examine the means and methods by which organizations from both the public and private sectors can more accurately determine the value of the identity assets they collect, store and manage, and the impact that these valuations can have on fundamental business practices. Another key component of this program is to better educate organizations as well as individual consumers/citizens to understand the value of their own identity information, and safeguard it accordingly.
