The Global Identity Summit (GIS) is the U.S. federal government’s primary outreach and collaboration-building event with the worldwide identity community. GIS is held annually and is designed to:

  • Promote a comprehensive understanding of current capabilities, pending needs, market trends, and future directions of both the federal government and the entire identity community.
  • Initiate and advance public-private and cross-discipline collaboration necessary for the continued advancement and appropriate application of identity and access management disciplines across all mission spaces.

The Global Identity Summit provides an immersive environment where identity professionals from the federal government, private sector, and academia can dedicate three continuous days to strategic planning, information sharing, needs analysis, collaboration, and relationship building.  GIS venues are chosen to support this environment (rather than drive-by participation), and enable concurrent presentation tracks, workshops, exhibition space, dining, and private events.

The 2016 GIS will be more focused than ever on the community’s future, and the expanded role the private sector can support and share in mission success.  The Planning Committee has designed this year’s event so that it provides an assessment of the current state of government and private-sector programs and challenges, generates public-private consensus on items that are most critical to this community’s future, and pairs solution providers with stakeholders in order to improve the posture of identity management in the US, and around the globe.  The shifting drivers within our community, new threats and trends, and an impending presidential administration change makes the next 12 months critical for joint planning.  Participants at the 2016 Global Identity Summit will be able to share their experiences and insights as the community deliberates on the current state of identity and plans a path forward for the global identity community.
