Cloud Identity Summit 2016 Coming to New Orleans

From June 6-9, identity industry leaders will gather in New Orleans for the 2016 Cloud Identity Summit (CIS). The event brings together enterprise presenters, experts, and more to share insights and synthesize new ideas.

Organizers are expecting over 1,000 attendees and are planning to host at least 100 sessions and 42 master classes throughout the summit.

Retired military officer and former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, General David Petraeus, has been announced as the leading keynote speaker at CIS.

“As we look forward to another successful year of CIS, I’m pleased to announce these exciting additions to the event agenda,” said Andre Durand, CEO and founder of Ping Identity, the host sponsor of Cloud Identity Summit.

Google will serve as the Master Class sponsor and Microsoft will serve as the Enterprise sponsor. Another major contributor is Optiv Security, now the Founding Security Sponsor.

“This year’s lineup is more exciting than ever before, with the addition of several new educational, hands-on master classes, insight from the top security experts in the world, and an agenda filled with informative, cutting edge topics,” continued Durand.
