Titled "Secure Identity: Protects privacy; mitigates identity theft & fraud; and enhances national security" the event will feature remarks from leading experts in the identity technology industry and the privacy community:

"The need for secure identity to protect our national security, stop the rampant growth of identity theft and fraud, while at the same time protecting privacy, are issues at the forefront of discourse in 2016. Please join us on Capitol Hill for this important discussion."
