Press Release (ePRNews.com) - WASHINGTON - Mar 15, 2018 - The KNOW Identity Conference (https://www.knowidentityconference.com/), the premier global event for the identity industry, is announcing that Nick Shapiro, Global Head of Trust and Risk Management at Airbnb, and Margaret Weichert, Deputy Director for Management with the Office of Management and Budget for the White House, will each deliver keynote addresses at the highly anticipated event. KNOW Identity 2018 runs Monday, March 26th to Wednesday, March 28th at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Conference Center in Washington, D.C.
On Tuesday the 27th, Shapiro will address industry leaders on the topic of, “Trust: The Fundamental Currency of the Sharing Economy.” He’ll detail how Airbnb uses technology and innovation to build trust and keep its users safe. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.
“Trust at many traditional institutions of modern life is at record lows. Yet, at the same time, Airbnb is helping build trust between people who’ve never met and empowering millions to travel the world or open up their homes to others” said Nick Shapiro, Global Head of Trust & Risk Management at Airbnb. “The KNOW Identity Conference is a great opportunity to highlight the lessons we’ve learned in the sharing economy that can be applied across industries.”
Prior to Airbnb, Shapiro served as the CIA Deputy Chief of Staff and Senior Advisor to CIA Director John Brennan. He previously served on the National Security Council and was a counterterrorism and homeland security aide to President Obama.
On the morning of Wednesday the 28th, Weichert will offer attendees an inside look at the President’s Management Agenda (PMA) and dive into its long-term vision for effective and modern government capabilities that work on behalf of the American people. Weichert will detail how PMA and its three pillars of IT modernization, data accountability and transparency will address critical challenges where the government is behind the times.
As an innovator and entrepreneur with a background in banking and payments technology, Weichert leads the President’s management efforts across the Federal government through the PMA. Many of the policies written and implemented as part of the president’s management agenda determine best practices that shape the nation’s approach to businesses in these areas.
“Having both Margaret and Nick deliver keynotes at KNOW 2018 demonstrates the growing roles that identity and security play in our daily lives. Whether through e-commerce and banking, or receiving yycgkq services provided by the government, our keynotes will highlight the growing impact of the digital ecosystem,” said Travis Jarae, CEO of One World Identity. “Along with keynotes from L2 founder Scott Galloway and first female private space explorer Anousheh Ansari, plus dozens of expert panels, our startup pitches, the hackathon and much more, KNOW 2018 is truly a must-attend event.”
