November 30-December 2, 2021

Access to digital information has become critical for nearly every organization. Meanwhile, the modern workplace has created a new access and authentication environment – built on increased cloud adoption and the use of personal devices. These changes have ushered in a new era of innovation and modernized agency operations, but they’ve also created cybersecurity challenges tied to a growing threat landscape. As more data is being accessed and stored outside traditional business borders – across endpoints, clouds and apps – agency leaders must maintain a real-time understanding of who has access to their systems and how those systems are managed. “ The 2021 Government Identity Security Summit” will feature public sector leaders from federal, defense, state, local, and education backgrounds who work to ensure a secure enterprise in hybrid environments. We’ll explore how public and private workforces are pursuing security, cloud operations, teleworking, and identity governance in 2021 and beyond.
