8th Annual Identity Management Symposium

DSI’s 8th Annual Identity Management Symposium will focus on the technologies and policies necessary for the further development of identity and access management used by DoD, DHS, Law Enforcement, and the Federal Government. This forum will convene members of DoD, DHS, USG, and their industry partners in a town-hall style forum to discuss and further development of IDAM solutions and biometric technology in support of the Warfighter and national security interests. 


Topics to be Covered at the 2022 Symposium:

  • Modernizing ICAM strategy throughout DoD to protect critical assets and resources
  • Supporting multi-domain operations through biometric data collection
  • Facilitating identity intelligence initiatives across DHS through integration of biometric technologies
  • Integrating Next Generation Identity Systems to Increase Efficiency in Biometric Management at CJIS
  • Implementing a Zero-Trust Architecture to broaden access while increasing security in pursuit of national security interests
  • Enhancing biometric capabilities at TSA to achieve secure, touchless travel
  • Leading DISA’s efforts to support the Warfighter through implementation of cloud-based solutions


Why You Should Attend: 

DSI’s 8th Annual Identity Management Symposium will explore new developments in identity intelligence technologies, systems, and analysis through the lens of advancing America’s national security interests and supporting the Warfighter. The DoD FY2022 Budget Request of $5.6 billion towards cybersecurity (with $1.17 billion going towards modernizing ICAM solutions, implementing Zero Trust Architectures, and securing data sharing across agencies) indicates the high level of priority assigned to these issues. The 2022 symposium will address areas of growth and opportunity within the world identity intelligence.

Discussions led by senior leaders across DoD and USG will address current challenges and offer insight to attendees on how to best leverage advancements in identity intelligence technologies moving forward. These discussions will cover topics ranging from the need for innovative ICAM solutions to make telework more secure, to improving performance of biometric data collection and analysis to make travel safer and more efficient. Additionally, an innovative panel discussion at this event will focus on the implementation of Zero-Trust Architectures and the impact that they will have on security and efficiency.

The DSI team specializes in the extensive research and development of our Symposiums’ content and focus areas; we will assemble the most respected minds in identity management as well as key-policy makers across military and civilian offices.
