Come Together – Bringing Identity and Security Together for a More Complete Solution

CONVERGE, Courion’s annual customer conference slated for May 13-16 in New Orleans, is fast approaching. This marks the 12th year we’ve brought together customers, partners and our Courion team. CONVERGE was the first user conference dedicated to IAM, and it’s also the longest running. As always, we plan to exceed your expectations. We’ve assembled noted authorities in identity and access management to share their expertise and provide a peek into what’s new at the intersection of identity and security.

Our theme this year is Come Together – Bringing Identity and Security Together for a More Complete Solution. In prior years, we’ve alluded to the benefits of intelligence driven IAM and discussed the evolution of IAM and how identity and access intelligence can improve response to threats, inside and out. Given the current pace of publicly disclosed data breaches, this year’s conference is all about leveraging your investment in IAM to better secure your world.

Kyle F. Waldinger
Assistant United States Attorney
United States Department of Justice

As an Assistant U.S. Attorney in Northern California, Mr. Waldinger has prosecuted cases including the trial and sentencing of a former Korn/Ferry recruiter for stealing trade secrets by getting former co-workers to download information that he used to start his own firm. In 2007, he was part of the team that obtained one of the first convictions under the federal law prohibiting foreign economic espionage, against two defendants who stole trade secrets from several Silicon Valley companies in an effort to establish a microprocessor manufacturing company in the People’s Republic of China.
