Shifting Focus to Changing Requirements for Federal Identity and Security

Our organization’s focus shifts to government identity and security with the 16th annual Securing Federal Identity 2017 event being held June 6 in Washington, DC.  Our involvement in hosting this important conference spans four elections, three different administrations, and two political parties. Despite the dysfunctional nature of Washington politics, the federal government has been steadfast in its quest to make identity management and access security function across the entire executive branch. My letter this quarter goes into more detail about the event, including some interesting sessions and speakers you won’t want to miss. The newsletter also features updates on Alliance Councils, a profile of Leadership Council member Giesecke & Devrient America, Inc., a feature article on blockchain technology, new collaboration site URL for Alliance councils, new members, and recent CSCIP and CSEIP recipients.
