June 30th – July 1st, 2020 | Mary M. Gates Learning Center, Alexandria, VA


DSI’s 7th Annual Identity Management Symposium will provide a town-hall type forum focused on innovative identity technologies and capabilities that are helping to further develop identity and access management used by the DoD, DHS, Law Enforcement, and Federal Government. This Symposium will detail the various efforts underway by these agencies to leverage biometrics and identity assurance capabilities to improve operational efficiency and to share vital identity intelligence in support of national security efforts.


The 2020 Symposium will address innovative identity management capabilities including Facial Recognition Technologies (FRT) that are helping to enhance operational effectiveness throughout all sectors of government agencies, as well as the intelligence community. 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.

  • DSI’s 7th Annual Identity Management Symposium will enhance identity data collection and analysis that provides DoD, DHS, Law Enforcement, and Federal Civilian Organizations with critical capabilities to help identify threats, reduce costs, and target valuable resources where they are most needed. Advances in identity intelligence allow for the discovery of unknown potential threat actors by connecting individuals to other people, places, events, or materials. The Symposium will also focus on analysis of patterns of life to establish baselines and identify abnormalities and measure an actor or group’s potential threat level to U.S. interests. 
 
  • The 2020 Symposium will address current innovative biometric capabilities such as Facial Recognition Technologies (FRT) that are helping to enhance operational effectiveness throughout all sectors of government agencies, as well as the intelligence community.  
 
  • The DSI team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums’ content and focus areas, and we will assemble the most respected minds in border security as well as key-policy makers across military and civilian offices.
