Identity Management Day Virtual Conference 2022 will focus on the importance of managing and securing digital identities.

The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA), a nonprofit that provides vendor-neutral education and resources to help organizations reduce the risk of a breach by combining identity and security strategies, today announced the Identity Management Day Virtual Conference 2022. The one-day, online event will take place on Identity Management Day, April 12, 2022, and features five panel sessions and an interactive event on Twitter hosted by event co-sponsor, the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA).

Now in its second year, the mission of Identity Management Day is to educate business leaders, IT decision makers and consumers on the importance of identity management and key components including governance, identity-centric security best practices, processes, and technology, with a special focus on the dangers of not properly securing identities and access credentials.
