Whitehall Media, the UK’s market-leading business-to-business multi-platform media group, is pleased to announce the launch of our eight Identity Management Conference and Exhibition. Identity Management 2013 will be held at the Hotel Russell, London, on 6 November, 2013, and is sponsored by FORGEROCK, axway, courian, Ping identity, Hitachi ID, Salford Software, Aveksa, Layer 7, and is partnered by SNIA, SC Magazine and Tech Target. Featured speakers will include Steve Gold, Editor-in-Chief of IT Security Pro,, Mark Ridley, founder member of, Ullrich Kohl, programme manager for access and identity management at Volkswagen and Ian Imeson, who is leading the government’s programme to deliver Single Sign On across the public sector. November’s event promises to be the UK’s largest gathering for IT and business professionals responsible for IDM Infrastructure and Deployment.

Why another IDM Conference?

That’s a simple enough question to answer. IDM 2013 is the national business strategy conference that meets your infrastructure, business and networking needs. It will be attended by key IDM decision-makers across the public sector, banking, finance, insurance and all other major business and industry sectors in the UK. It will focus on the practical aspects of strategic delivery of Enterprise Identity Solutions as well as discuss the technology and business aspects of delivery of an Identity Management Policy in the workplace.

The conference will provide those charged with the implementation of an Identity Assurance strategy with a powerful platform to discuss the policies and agendas that they are required to deliver in order to effect a truly secure and technologically innovative Great Britain in the 21st Century. Whether you are still in the early stages of formalising and automating IDM processes, or are ready to embrace the new frontier of mining IDM-generated data for business intelligence to meet new business needs, IDM 2013 will give you the practical insight and innovative thinking you need to move forward effectively.

Key Benefits from attending:

The identity-management market is approaching a crossroads: the complexity of managing users across organisations is increasing, end-user resistance to being held responsible for managing credentials is increasing, security requirements to preserve privacy and prevent identity theft are increasing, and IT budgets for the technology are decreasing. IDM 2013 will help you to exploit the full potential of new and future IDM investments, to fully realize their risk-management and governance benefits and their direct business value. No one can afford the non-essential: so learn what will make your every move mission-critical in the eyes of your leaders.

The response from our last IDM Conference earlier this year was overwhelmingly positive, but we know we can make it even better and more inspiring.

We extend a warm welcome to all our colleagues in the industry who share our interest in improving Security and reducing Fraud in the UK, and look forward to welcoming you for what promises to be our best IDM Conference yet.
