The Premier North American Event for Homeland Security and Identity Management


The Global Identity Summit has evolved into the Federal Identity Forum & Exposition (FedID 2018). The move bolsters the event as the U.S. federal government’s primary outreach and collaboration-building event with the worldwide identity community.

FedID 2018 will be co-located with AFCEA’s well-established Homeland Security Conference. Together, the events will attract nearly 3,000 professionals from the identity and homeland security communities, sharply increasing the number of solutions, networking and business building opportunities.
