ForgeRock Identity Summit, Sydney - Agenda Announced

There are only a few weeks left before the ForgeRock Identity Summit Series makes its inaugural trip to Sydney, Australia! I wanted to provide a brief preview of the great event we have planned.

The Identity Summit will be held on the rooftop of the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia (MCA) on 9 August. It’s a beautiful location with breathtaking views of Sydney Harbour, the Opera House and the city skyline. We are bringing together industry analysts and the ForgeRock community of customers, partners, developers, and executives to discuss the latest in identity, privacy, and digital trust.

Following the Identity Summit, we will hold the Sydney Identity Unconference on 10 August, also at the MCA. This will be a highly technical event for identity geeks in which the agenda is determined by attendees, and focused around the ForgeRock open source identity platform and the identity relationship management community. For more details and to register for this free event, please visit the Sydney Identity Unconference website.

  • Graham Williamson, APAC Director & Senior Analyst, KuppingerCole who will look at societal trends and the methods available to identify members of the public as they connect to online services in his presentation “Know (and Serve) Your Customers.”

The agenda also includes a presentation on the very relevant topic of Continuous Security, as well as a “Thought Leaders Panel” in which speakers from KuppingerCole, TomTom, Constellation Research, Sunsuper, and John Dobbin & Associates will discuss why identity is a critical element in enabling digital business.
