KuppingerCole's 11th European Identity & Cloud Conference 2017

(PresseBox) (Wiesbaden, )  The European Identity & Cloud Conference, taking place May 9 – 12, 2017 at the Infinity Ballhaus Forum Unterschleissheim, Munich/Germany, is Europe’s leading event for Identity and Access Management (IAM), Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC), as well as Cloud Security. For the 11th time, the EIC will offer high-class presentations to more than 700 participants from worldwide companies.

Leading experts in IAM and Information Security will talk about best practices and ways to effectively mitigate future Digital Risks for enterprises. In every year the Conference offers a world class list of speakers and a unique mix of presentations, panel discussions, thought leadership and analyst views.

“EIC 2017 will offer a broad range of security and privacy topics like nowhere else”, Joerg Resch, managing director at KuppingerCole, states. “As an attendee, you receive the most recent information on Identity, Privilege & Access Management, Cybersecurity as well as the impact of Blockchain on identity and security including current and future use cases. ” EIC 2017 as always is a mix out of forward-looking presentations and concrete advice.  “I strongly recommend looking at the ‘best practice’ sessions, providing you access to knowledge from more than ten years of advisory, helping you reducing your project cost and risk” mentions Martin Kuppinger, founder and principal Analyst of KuppingerCole.
