Review of the 10th European Identity and Cloud Conference 2016

Wiesbaden, May 18th 2016 – Last Friday KuppingerCole wrapped up their 10th European Identity & Cloud Conference, Europe’s leading event for Identity and Access Management (IAM), Governance, Risk Management and Compliance (GRC), as well as Cloud Security, in Munich, Germany. With 60 exhibitors and more than 700 participants KuppingerCole brought together the world’s leading vendors, end users, thought leaders, visionaries and analysts.

With the theme „Enabling Agility and Innovation in the Age of Digital Transformation“ this year’s big topics in Identity & Access Management/Governance, Cloud Security and Digital Risk were to experience how Security and Privacy by Design build the foundation for agile business. Looking ahead with “Moving Beyond the Hype: EIC 2016 Blockchain Seminar”, five top speakers explained why there is such a big discussion around the Blockchain technology and how it is going to influence our future industry.

With five parallel tracks, more than 140 international speakers and experts, and many Best Practice presentations, EIC 2016 provided participants with a comprehensive overview of future trends in internet security as well as practical information about best practice projects.

“A notable positive change is the increase in the percentage of end users at the conference, which continues to constitute the largest group of EIC participants”, according to Bettina Buthmann, Event Manager at KuppingerCole. “I am very proud to say that this year’s EIC was bigger than ever before” states Joerg Resch, Managing Director at KuppingerCole “With delegates from more than 30 countries and 120 hours of program this year’s conference was a huge success”.

Once again the European Identity and Cloud Conference 2016, with the EIC Exhibition, a world class list of speakers, and a unique mix of best practices, presentations, panel discussions, thought leadership and analyst views was a must-attend event in 2016 where you could discover the latest trends in, and get up to date information on the field of information security.
