Tonkin Corporation's Electronic Identity Verification conference is being held next week in Sydney and Melbourne. This is the second year for the event. This year, I was invited to speak on the topic of 'Managing Identity in the Cloud'. I'll be covering three main topics:
- Controlling data privacy and managing compliance when working off the cloud
- Ensuring security, access and protection for your data before deciding on a cloud initiative
- Exploring the benefits of cloud for electronic identity verification including saving on costs
What I am finding interesting about this speaking opportunity is to speak about cloud security in the context of a particular application that is in essence, a security service. I'm also looking forward to learning more about the capabilities of identity proofing / EIV vendors, and seeing how their services are being used in government and industry in my region.
