Announcing Chrysalis 2021!

 2 – 5 November 2021
Loews Coronado Bay Resort, San Diego

The pandemic has dramatically changed the business and technology landscape. Most organizations entered a “digital survival” mode as we suddenly experienced a new business reality. Lockdowns, supply chain disruptions, and customer hesitancy have accelerated digital transformation across the globe. We believe that enterprises now have an opportunity to assess lessons learned and how they apply to today’s ecosystems – and use this knowledge to build a new foundation. Enterprises can now solidify their security, identity, and governance foundation to be prepared for a stronger digital future. This is the focus of Chrysalis 2021. As a special incentive in these uncertain times we are offering a 50% super early bird discount that will be applied at checkout below.

Here’s what we have planned

There are plenty of conferences for technical executives and professionals around, but our TechVision Chrysalis conference is different.

  • It’s focused on the consumers of technology, not the sellers
  • It is an exclusive gathering with immersive sessions explaining complex topics that matter
  • It provides open access to experts in the emerging digital enterprise
  • It presents independent and unbiased analysis of advances in technology and approach
  • AND delivers pragmatic and practical advice from folks that have “been there and done that”

Frankly, concepts and skills that would take you so much time and money to learn on your own are literally handed to you on a silver platter at this conference. Here’s what we are currently planning to cover during the event.

 

Digital Enterprise Foundation

 

Building a resilient and adaptable digital foundation is increasingly critical to business success. TechVision will describe a capabilities-based Digital Enterprise Reference Architecture and use this model to frame our discussions during the conference. We’ll also review case studies to highlight how large organizations are evolving into truly digital businesses.

Governance

 

Governance in its essence describes “who decides, and by which process something happens.” As the movement to digital business, ecosystems and platforms accelerated in 2020, they created decision-making requirements that can no longer be met by traditional governance practices. Our belief is that as enterprises entered pandemic survival mode, one of the major areas to suffer was governance. The instant shift to hybrid cloud, remote work, and digital-only customer interactions has created a risk profile that no CISO (or CEO) would knowingly accept. Chrysalis will focus on governance in identity and security as a basis for achieving business outcomes. As such, governance will also be reflected throughout the program as we figure out how to incorporate the increasingly complex and regulated relationships between subjects, assets, and resources into a responsive, scalable, yet manageable digital foundation.

Identity Management

 

Identity and Access Management are major areas of coverage at Chrysalis 2021. You can’t govern or manage what you can’t explicitly identify, and the challenges faced in the IAM area are expanding as fast as is the Digital Enterprise.  In fact, the expansion of customer engagement, remote worker access, new digital programs, IoT device proliferation, increased security threats, privacy/data protection legislation, massively increased scale and user experience expectations are creating new Identity-based demands that must be factored into our future state plans.

Topics to be covered include

  • Exploring the future of Identity,
  • Providing a model to help enterprises develop their own IAM reference architecture,
  • A Customer IAM (CIAM) level set and vendor panel,
  • Contextual IAM describing the use of relationship and context data within an IAM service,
  • A panel exploring the disruptive topic of Decentralized Identity,
  • Reviewing IAM standards and integration approaches
  • A panel Identity “legends” who are directly involved in the creation of today’s standards and ecosystems will share their insights, recommendations, and vision.

Authentication and Authorization

 

The Digital Enterprise combined with technology advances and increasingly sophisticated user experience requirements provides the basis for new thinking relative to authentication and authorization. Chrysalis 2021 examines these new models, approaches and enterprise recommendations towards simplifying and offering stronger and increasingly user-friendly future-state authentication and authorization capabilities.  The new digital enterprise and availability of more contextual data at scale is providing new opportunities for innovation and disruption while adding functionality to existing platforms.  This area includes topics such as

  • Passwordless authentication,
  • Multi-factor authentication,
  • Step-up/adaptive authentication,
  • Privileged Access Management (PAM) including JIT PAM and dynamic authorization.

Existing approaches will be evaluated, and new models considered in sessions led by TechVision analysts, industry experts and key vendors.

 

Security and Risk Management

 

As we have been saying for years, Identity is the new Security perimeter. The fluidity in network connections, processing locations, and infrastructure has made this more pronounced since the beginning of 2020. Chrysalis 2021 will focus on where security and risk management need to go as we engage this “new normal”. Topics to be covered include:

  • What Zero Trust really means for large enterprises and how organizations can improve security while paying attention to the user experience.
  • Sharing our comprehensive Security Reference Architecture,
  • Describing and implementing a modern-day risk framework,
  • Leveraging AI/ML and Big data in achieving Zero Trust/Zero Friction security.
  • Shifting to DevSecOps
  • Enhancing User Endpoint Security
  • Five of the strongest “legends” in the security space reflecting on how enterprises should move forward in architecting, investing, building and maintaining their security programs

Workshops

 

Workshops will be offered on November 2 and November 5. Each workshop will be ½ day. Currently we plan to include the following topics:

  • Building your Future of Identity Management
  • Decentralized Identity
  • Developing an IAM Reference Architecture
  • Developing a Security Reference Architecture
  • Executing on a Zero Trust/Zero Friction Strategy

 Speakers invited to appear

We are lining up a “super star” set of presenters and panelists for this event. The experience and diversity of the speakers  provide business-level support and vision for CXOs and senior IT executives as well as pragmatic architecture and deep technology analysis for in-house architects and subject matter experts. These are the experts that will share their experience and knowledge with the attendees.

We’re excited to be offering a live event

The live interactions, discussions, and experiences enrich the conference event in ways that cannot be imitated in virtual events.

Listen to what the 2019 attendees had to say.
