Last week at the Cloud Identity Summit in New Orleans, on Tuesday June 7th in fact, I reached a personal milestone. It signalled my first 100 days in the role. What a ride!   

...

Our Workshop at the Cloud Identity Summit was very well attended. Folks seem to enjoy our fluid agenda with multiple speakers even if the logistics can sometimes get the better of challenge us, as we showcase our highly respected membership to others new to the space. When I asked for a 'hands up' as to who was new to Kantara, around two thirds of the room put their hand up.  So inspiring! LC  LC Chair Andrew Hughes' s idea of the 'Team Kantara' breakfast table was a huge hit. New members, prospective members, longstanding members, friends, spouses, children - they all came!

  • ISO/ITU-T: Nothing ground breaking to report here, but remember a significant Kantara member-only benefit is access to the Kantara's Category C liaison with ISO/IEC JTC1 SC27 Working Group 5 (Identity and Privacy). This means you can review and comment on WG5's standard drafts. Of particular interest is ISO 29184, Guidelines for online privacy notices and consent co-edited by our own Kantara Board member Nat Sakimura. 
  • Kantara's long standing Liaison with IDESG that sees significant cross membership, has been active these past weeks as the mapping between the Kantara Identity Assurance Framework and the Identity Ecosystem Framework (IDEF) Registry for folks self attesting their compliance, was completed and launched at the Cloud Identity Summit. 
  • Further liaisons are progressing, with announcements expected soon.

  • Folks really love our snazzy graphics on our website sliders, so all credit to the Marketing team at Virtual Managementkudos to our web guru Oliver and Virtual's Marketing team. They were also responsible for the 'I signed the pledge' badge ribbons and the device case stickers we gave away at Cloud Identity Summit. If you have more ideas please contact the ED.
