Why You Should Attend The Summit
- To more accurately identify threats that pose risks to vital U.S. Interests, the U.S. Government is actively seeking improvements to their biometric, identity and access management capabilities in order to provide greater insight on the behavior, intent and actions of known and unknown threat actors.
- By conducting rigorous R&D and leveraging industry perspectives on burgeoning capabilities and technologies, the U.S. Government has made ample improvements to characterizing threat levels, analyzing patterns of life, and maintaining proper access management in support of National Security.
- Despite these advancements, the U.S. Government has identified numerous challenges still facing the Biometrics and Identity Management communities that are critical to providing greater physical and logical security measures across the DoD and U.S. Government.
- The 2017 Identity Management Symposium will provide valuable information on the current and prospective initiatives that the U.S. Government supports in order to integrate advanced identity and access management practices for greater defense and security. The Symposium will also provide updates on the biometric initiatives and technologies that improve the efficiency and security of Government Organizations.
- Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposium's content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the community from operational leaders, the R&D Community, key policy-makers, as well as solution providers from industry and academia. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all involved organizations bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
