Market-leading digital identity event to be expanded in partnership with Ping Identity as founding sponsor

New York, NY, December 13, 2021CyberRisk Alliance (CRA), a business intelligence company serving the cybersecurity and information risk management marketplace, has acquired Identiverse, the premier annual conference for the Identity Access Management (IAM) community. Identiverse was founded in 2010 by the enterprise identity leader, Ping Identity, who will remain a founding sponsor and continue to support the conference’s expansion strategy.

Identiverse extends CRA’s event portfolio into the rapidly growing identity management marketplace, a fundamental and broad segment of cybersecurity that touches vast audiences of business and technical stakeholders. Attended by more than 2,000 digital identity, security and privacy experts from over 800 large enterprise and public sector organizations, Identiverse is known for a thought-provoking multitrack program of content, speakers, and keynotes, delivered with high production value, and moderated by IAM expert and content director Andi Hindle, who will continue in his role under CRA’s ownership.

Alongside InfoSec World, SC Events and Security Weekly Unlocked, Identiverse establishes another franchise brand in CRA’s Learning portfolio, and will be a platform for serving the identity security market through new business intelligence, content, and event resources. CRA will also offer new marketing partnership opportunities to Identiverse’s rich community of sponsors, including technology giants, sector leaders, startups, integrators and consultants, standards bodies, and professional associations.

“Identiverse is uniquely positioned to serve an essential discipline within cybersecurity,” said CyberRisk Alliance CEO and Founder Doug Manoni. “Our expansion plans for the conference and our commitment to serve the IAM community will develop Identiverse into an ever more powerful and influential brand of scale. We are particularly pleased to be partnering with an industry pioneer in Andre Durand and having Ping Identity’s continued support of the conference’s success.”

“Ping identity started Identiverse over 13 years ago with the vision to share information and perspectives with the brightest minds in Identity and Access Management,” said Andre Durand founder and CEO of Ping identity, and founder of Identiverse. “We are partnering with CyberRisk Alliance to expand our reach and impact among the security community. I look forward to working with them and the entire Identiverse team to inspire future practitioners to solve the toughest challenges within identity and access management.”

The 2022 Identiverse Conference will be held June 21-24, 2022, in Denver, CO, and offer more than 140 sessions, panels and keynotes. Themed “Trust,” the conference will explore how digital identity can improve customer experience at the same time as enhancing security and privacy.
