KNOW Identity Conference

On that Monday morning, Galloway will present "The Break Up of Big Tech." He'll detail the power and influence big tech have on consumers lives and why it's time for intervention. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions.

"For the past decade, the loudest arguments waged regarding the Four (Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google) were about which CEO was more Jesus-like or should run for president," said Scott Galloway, Founder of L2. "However, the worm has turned against big tech and we're starting to realize that it's time someone ought to put on the brakes."

Galloway is a professor at the NYU Stern School of Business where he teaches brand strategy and digital marketing and was named "One of the World's 50 Best Business School Professors" by Poets & Quants in 2012. He is the founder of Red Envelope, Prophet Brand Strategy, and L2 Inc., acquired by Gartner in March 2017. His book, "The Four", (Portfolio Penguin, 2017), debuted on the New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists in the hardcover non-fiction and hardcover business categories. Galloway was elected to the World Economic Forum's Global Leaders of Tomorrow and has served on the boards of directors of Eddie Bauer, The New York Times Company, Urban Outfitters, and UC Berkeley's Haas School of Business.

The KNOW Identity Conference will provide a unique forum for identity experts from across all industries to be at the nexus of ideas and policies that will fundamentally change identity around the world.  Attendees can expect to delve into critical topics such as biometrics, cybersecurity, identity access management, trust and safety, fraud prevention and identity verification.

"Scott Galloway is well versed in the importance of customer experience and brand trust in the digital age, which are crucial topics we will tackle at Know Identity 2018," says Travis Jarae, CEO of OWI. "Identity is currently being solved through impressive technologies, however often at the expense of trust. We are bringing together top thought leaders to explore how future innovation in identity can help companies across multiple verticals benefit from ubiquitous product and service offerings without sacrificing the trust and safety of consumers.
