“With input from thought leaders across government and the security and technology industries, this event helps to assess the effectiveness of government identity programs in place today and stimulate cross-industry discussion on effective use of PIV credentials and mobile identity technologies,” said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance. “This year, the event will explore new GSA and NIST policy and standards updates, showcase progress in the adoption of cloud and mobility identity initiatives, and discuss use cases demonstrating improvements in authentication and authorization for physical and logical access.”

The event will include keynotes, roundtables and panels covering topics including:

  • Federal PIV credentials usage for two-factor authentication
  • PIV-enabled E-PACS expansion for access security
  • Mobile credentials
  • Mobile and cloud identity systems and authentication
  • Biometrics usage for federal security programs
  • Evolving standards for cybersecurity frameworks and mobile services
  • GSA FICAM roadmap and testing programs
  • State mobile driver’s license initiatives
  • Cyber threats and mitigation programs

At the conclusion of the conference on the second day, attendees can add to their learning experience and further explore the mobile identity landscape through the Mobile Identity Workshop. The workshop will take a deep dive into mobile identity credential initiatives: mobile drivers’ licenses and the federal government’s use of various mobile identity technologies solutions. This workshop is an additional event and requires separate registration.
