 Speaking Engagement

 Visit Us at Booth 218

The Cloud Identity Summit was founded by Ping Identity in 2010 with support from industry leaders to bring together the brightest minds across the identity and security industry. Today, our family-friendly event is recognized as the world’s premier identity industry conference and includes tracks from industry thought leaders, CIOs, executives and practitioners. Cloud Identity Summit serves as a multi-year roadmap to deploy solutions that are here today and built for the future. In 2017, Cloud Identity Summit focuses on Intelligent Identity.

We are proud to have six speaking sessions at Cloud Identity Summit:

Should Identity Be at the Core of Your Security Strategy?
Who/Topic: It’s no secret that approaches to Identity and Access Management (IAM) have evolved rapidly over the last several years to meet the changes in how we transact business and the rapidly growing threat of a breach. Join Optiv’s Aubrey Turner, client solutions provider, IAM, for this session, where you will learn why it’s important to put identity at the core of your security strategy and how to achieve success by leveraging existing cyber security assets.
When/Where: Monday, June 19 from 4:15 p.m. – 4:40 p.m. CST, Ballroom

Commandeering Cloud Environments with Secure Identities 
Who/Topic: The proliferation of cloud applications and services will only become more feverish as we embrace many of the technology trends we see today. Businesses must operate in a world without boundaries. Optiv’s Dan Olivares, senior director, cloud security, will lead this session that focuses on how businesses can take control of the explosion of cloud applications and services by applying a programmatic approach to cloud security with secure identities at the crux of the matter.
When/Where: Tuesday, June 20 from 9:30 a.m. – 9:55 a.m. CST, Chicago Ballroom VIII

CISO Perspective: Your IAM Strategy Needs a Risk-Based Approach
Who/Topic: Historically, Identity and Access Management (IAM) services were focused on establishing capabilities focused on provisioning technologies and operations managing access to critical information. With time, organizations often struggled to meet growing compliance demands and continued to deploy point solutions to support distinct applications and systems requirements. This session, led by Dawn-Marie Hutchinson, executive director, office of the CISO at Optiv, will address the requirements of a business aligned IAM strategy that will ultimately reduce business risk and improve overall operational efficiency. 
When/Where: Tuesday, June 20 from 2:30 p.m. – 2:55 p.m. CST, Chicago Ballroom VIII

Securing the Customer Experience 
Who/Topic: Customer-focused organizations continue to mature in their approach to customer management, enabling functions like an easy registration process, streamlined authentication, application access provisioning, and delegated administration of the customer’s own people. Join Optiv’s Janel Schalk, senior director, strategic consulting, for this session that will focus on how we as security professionals can secure our customer’s experience and data through focused Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM).
When/Where: Tuesday, June 20 from 4:20 p.m. – 4:40 p.m. CST, Chicago Ballroom VIII

The Risks of Authentication
Who/Topic: Does your authentication approach actually increase the risk to your organization? This expert panel, featuring Dawn-Marie Hutchinson, will explore what's wrong with the way we think about and implement authentication today and examine new techniques that are emerging to deal with those risks.
When/Where: Tuesday, June 20 from 4:20 p.m. – 5:20 p.m. CST, Superior Room

Identity Defined Security 
Who/Topic: Optiv’s Bryan Wiese, vice president and general manager, IAM, will join this expert panel to discuss how identity and security are growing ever closer together, technically and operationally; and explore how this can help provide better security and improved customer experience
When/Where: Wednesday, June 21, from 5:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. CST, Ballroom

Security in a Volatile Landscape 
Who/Topic: With continuous industry transformations being the new norm, our technology landscape has never been more difficult to secure. Businesses are bringing on new cloud applications to compete in a global marketplace and users are bringing their own devices that share identities, data and applications. For security professionals looking for solutions, the answer is no longer in just having the latest security technologies. Richard Bird, executive director at Optiv, will provide insight into the major themes and trends from our extensive network of clients, CISOs and security experts.
