The 5th Annual Identity Management Symposium will focus on the recent challenges, solutions and innovations for identity management practices and biometrics solutions across the DoD and Federal IT ecosystems.

Topics to be covered at the Symposium:

  • Enhancing Identity and Access Management Practices for Enhanced National Security

  • Identity Intelligence Information Exchange and Sharing Initiatives
  • Normalizing Identity and Access Management to a Single Identity Standard
  • Supporting DoD Identity Activities through Biometrics & Forensics Coordination

  • Supplementing National Security through Enhanced Capture and Recording of Biometric Information
  • Delivering Authentication Capabilities that Support the Operational Environment
  • Improving Non-Cooperative Facial Recognition Capabilities
  • Biometrics RDT&E Focus Areas and Future Investment

Why you should attend this year's Symposium:

Securing identity in today's increasingly digital landscape has proven to be a challenge across Government, the Military Services and private industry around the globe. The increased scope of unknown actors trying to gain access to sensitive information and locations has prompted the U.S. Government to actively improve its identity management and biometric capabilities to provide greater insight on the behavior, intent and actions of security threats to vital U.S. interests

The 2018 Identity Management Symposium will provide a forum for members of the DoD, DHS, Federal Government, Private Industry, Academia, and other relevant stakeholders to discuss the latest updates from key organizations involved in advancing identity and access management practices and biometric solutions that enhance National defense and security capabilities.

Our team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Summits' content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in the Identity Management and Biometrics communities, as well as key policy-makers across military and civilian offices. Our non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers

At our Symposium you will have the ability To:

  • Gain Education & Insight: Walk away with knowledge gained from our senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing the Identity Management, Access Management, and Biometric communities.
  • Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to discover some the latest technologies related to Identity Management, Access Management, and Biometrics.
  • Influence: Help foster ideas! Share your own insight and knowledge during our interactive sessions. All attendees are given the opportunity to address our speaker faculty with their questions or comments for open discussion.
