Whitehall Media announces its 7th biannual Identity Management conference

Manchester (UK), 11 October 2013 – Whitehall Media is proud to announce its 7th biannual Identity Management conference which is to be held on 6 November 2013 at the Hotel Russell in central London.

Managing user identities and reducing risks associated with critical assets is primary in an era of cloud computing and enterprise mobility. Supporting organisation-wide identity management across any application, user or device is integral to mitigating the consequences of unauthorised accidental, malicious or criminal access to networks and resources, which can result in reputational damage, revenue loss, serious disruption and even ruinous impairment to a nation’s critical national infrastructure.

Across all sectors, identity management is inextricably intertwined with security and productivity in organisations. In order to keep intruders at bay and mitigate risks associated with valuable data falling into the wrong hands, single sign-on and seamless integration of systems and devices with user-friendly interfaces are essential components in controlling and enhancing data stores, and allowing for consistent compliance and security policy enforcement.

Whitehall Media’s Identity Management conference will bring together users and suppliers of Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions to discuss the latest industry trends, large scale deployments, risk and compliance issues, new applications and business opportunities, and future innovative tools
and technologies on the horizon. Through a series of keynote plenary speakers, interactive case studies and live presentations, the conference will charter identity relationship and entitlement management, new security threats, user experience, synchronicity and enterprise identity architecture.

With up to 500 delegates expected on the day, attendees will benefit from unrivalled networking opportunities and insights to drive forward their identity management and efficiency saving strategies.

Waqas Hashemi, Managing Director of Whitehall Media, says: “Organisations are under increased pressure to strengthen their security while reducing costs and streamlining their operations. Identity and Access Management (IAM) has emerged as a viable solution for businesses looking for efficient ways to manage and secure their systems and assets. At our upcoming Identity Management conference, we will be providing an in-depth analysis of the IAM market worldwide through case studies and thought leadership presentations. Now the leading event in the UK for Identity Management, this year we will be welcoming delegates from every major business sector.”

Platinum Sponsors for the event are ForgeRock and NetIQ.
