Why You Should Attend:

      • DSI’s 8th Annual Identity Management Symposium will explore new developments in identity intelligence technologies, systems, and analysis through the lens of advancing America’s national security interests and supporting the Warfighter. The DoD FY2022 Budget Request of $5.6 billion towards cybersecurity (with $1.17 billion going towards modernizing ICAM solutions, implementing Zero Trust Architectures, and securing data sharing across agencies) indicates the high level of priority assigned to these issues. The 2022 symposium will address areas of growth and opportunity within the world identity intelligence.

      • Discussions led by senior leaders across DoD and USG will address current challenges and offer insight to attendees on how to best leverage advancements in identity intelligence technologies moving forward. These discussions will cover topics ranging from the need for innovative ICAM solutions to make telework more secure, to improving performance of biometric data collection and analysis to make travel safer and more efficient. Additionally, an innovative panel discussion at this event will focus on the implementation of Zero-Trust Architectures and the impact that they will have on security and efficiency.

      • The DSI team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums’ content and focus areas; we will assemble the most respected minds in identity management as well as key-policy makers across military and civilian offices.
