ForgeRock Unveils Speakers, Partners for Identity Live Event

ForgeRock has announced the lineup for its annual Identity Live conference.

The event will run from October 8th to 9th in London, with the first day to be held at Glaziers Hall in central London, and Day Two moving to Etc.Venues Monument across the Thames.

Speakers will include Maersk Chief Software Architect Simon Whelband; Hargreaves Lansdown Chief Digital Officer Chris Worle; BMW’s IT Architect for Paas / Web Enterprise Access Management, Gerald Maier; NHS Digital’s Product Owner for Staff Identity and Access Management, Philip Gill; and E*Trade Information Security VP Chad Cromwell. A number of ForgeRock executives, including CEO Fran Rosch, are also slated to speak during the event.

ForgeRock’s Marketplace has become an increasingly prominent platform of curated security solutions over the past several months, with multiple biometrics specialists joining the platform to extend their market reach. BioCatch and BioConnect, for example, both joined the Marketplace earlier this year, while Yoti developed an app that went live on ForgeRock’s BackStage platform last month. ForgeRock’s Identity Live event will offer another opportunity for ForgeRock to put a spotlight on its digital security-focused partners.

“Identity Live delivers the best of our industry has to offer, with customer presentations from leading global brands and valuable content from ForgeRock,” explained ForgeRock EMEA Marketing VP Sophie Lawson in a statement announcing event details. “As companies are looking to modernise their identity infrastructures, embrace the cloud according to their business requirements, and deliver best-in-class customer experiences, ForgeRock stands prepared to lead.”

Among the ForgeRock partners that are sponsoring and planning to attend Identity Live are Accenture, Deloitte, IT Smart Systems, Tech Data, and “many vendors from the ForgeRock Trust Network,” ForgeRock proclaimed in its announcement.
