London, U.K., 12th September 2017Amido, a vendor-agnostic, independent technical consultancy specialising in assembling and integrating proven cloud technologies, sponsors ForgeRock’s annual global Identity Live Summit in London. Now in its third year, the Identity Live Summit aims to focus on key industry issues pertaining to data and digital transformation.

With the impending General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), executives will expect to discuss the implications of technology solutions that deal with data and how they support identity management and privacy. With less than a year to go until the new regulation comes into force across the European Union, nearly a third of UK organisations fear they will not be compliant in time. Following Amido’s own GDPR Readiness Assessment launch in July, the sponsorship of this summit enables clients to be exposed to the right channels when dealing with Personal Identifiable Information (PII) and how to mitigate the risks associated with holding this form of data.

The Identity Live Summit is held globally across different cities throughout the year. This year it takes place in: Singapore, New York City, London, Paris and finally Washington D.C., bringing together visionary analysts, executives, technical experts, thought leaders, and other identity professionals to share their digital transformation knowledge and experience.

Alan Walsh, CEO of Amido, adds: “We’re completely committed to helping our customers get involved in the best discussions about the variety of practices and advice out there today. ForgeRock is one of our partners and we have worked very closely with them to help integrate digital services without compromising on price, workplace disruption and time-to-market deployment. As a company, we have always engineered the most interesting solutions; so sponsoring ForgeRock’s Identity Live Summit is the perfect fit for our vision to become the go-to partner for cloud-first design and digital transformation that positively impacts the business and its customer.”

Registration for the Identity Live Summit in London is now open.
