Keynote addresses from Kevin Mitnick and The Honorable Michael Chertoff will tackle identity issues for today’s complex IT environment

AUSTIN, March 29, 2016 – SailPoint, the leader in identity and access management (IAM), today announced its fourth identity governance conference, Navigate ’16, taking place June 13-15 at the JW Marriott in downtown Austin. The event is one of the largest gatherings devoted entirely to leveraging identity governance to mitigate risk and address growing compliance regulations.

Registration is now open for Navigate ’16, which offers a content-rich agenda spanning strategic discussions and practical advice, as well as lively debates about the future of identity. For the first time in the event’s history, Navigate will cater to not only the SailPoint community, but also to other industry experts to provide a collaborative environment for learning from and sharing advice with peers.

This year’s event features two esteemed keynote speakers who will be discussing identity in different contexts. Kevin Mitnick, author of “The Art of Deception,” will provide a unique perspective into social engineering to help organizations think defensively and more proactively. The Honorable Michael Chertoff, who was the US Secretary of Homeland Security from 2005-2009 before co-founding The Chertoff Group, will share his views on the evolving range of cyber threats, including the role of identity in addressing them.

“Navigate is the ideal environment for identity governance professionals to come together and collectively explore how identity is impacting enterprises on a daily basis,” said Mark McClain, CEO and co-founder of SailPoint. “We’re excited to welcome our peers for a packed agenda, including two keynote speakers who couldn’t be more different, but offer interesting insights into identity in today’s ever-changing IT world. We know our attendees will gain valuable knowledge from both of these dynamic speakers.”
