On the Horizon: IdentityFirst.org 2014 Summit

October 21st, 2014   /     /   smarter identity, security and compliance

This year has been extremely busy for OneLogin, both as a company and a platform. I am very happy with our progress in our compliance initiatives (our Sales team is too, I can assure you). The last few weeks have been packed with impressive client wins, the launch of a streamlined UI and a compelling website (www.onelogin.com).

Although it’s always great to look back and muse on past achievements, I am looking forward to next week, when I participate in the compliance panel at IdentityFirst.org’s inaugural Summit on October 30, 2014 at Cavallo Point in Sausalito, California. IdentityFirst.org is the first industry community focused on sharing best practices for identity management as we all move to be cloud first enterprises.

Identity First Summit promises to be a thought leading event with session leaders from Carlyle Group, Egnyte, Pandora, Pinterest, Uber, Yelp and Zendesk. The IdentityFirst.org members are convening to discuss topics such as the future of Active Directory, alternative mobile security models, Workday-driven identity management, and my panel, which discusses the role of identity in compliance management.

As a leader in identity management, it is only fitting that OneLogin be IdentityFirst.org’s founding member, and we are joined by an impressive list of members from enterprises such as Airbnb, Conde Nast, Department of Homeland Security, GoPro, Herman Miller, McKesson, NetFlix, One Medical, Steelcase, Visa, Wells Fargo, Yahoo and more than 300 others.

You can read all about IdentityFirst.org and the IdentityFirst.org 2014 Summit here.

I look forward to seeing many of you at the Summit, and I will blog again post-Summit with my thoughts and impressions.
