Securing Federal Identity
Each year, the Secure Technology Alliance comes to Washington, D.C., to lead a government-focused event for thought leaders and executives with government identity, security, access management systems backgrounds.
This leading event in the nation’s capital attracts hundreds of attendees interested in learning and sharing the latest in federal identity credentialing and access security and government identity and authentication programs. Other key topics and new policies are also brought forth, such as discussions around the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) credential, government-focused efforts in cybersecurity, trusted identity on mobile devices, and developments in state and local government ID programs.
This annual event takes its cues from initiatives and directives coming out of the federal government. As a result, it has in some years been held over a two-day period, while other years a one-day conference has proven successful.
Recent topics at Securing Federal Identity have included:
- Federal secure identity policy and technology guideline updates
- Federal identity programs and standards
- Discussions on the future of Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management (FICAM), PIV, PIV-Interoperable (PIV-I) and the Common Access Card (CAC)
- Use of two-factor authentication in federal agencies
- Mobile identity and authentication approaches
