Semperis, the leader in identity-driven cyber resilience, opened registration today for the third annual Hybrid Identity Protection (HIP) Conference, taking place April 20-22, 2020 at the Microsoft Technology Center in New York City. With the disappearance of the network perimeter, identity has become the last line of defense from cyberattacks. HIP is the premier educational forum for advancing the skills of identity and cybersecurity professionals through highly technical demonstrations and collaborative workshops. Early bird tickets for HIP Conference 2020 are available until February 10.
“I am really looking forward to the conversations at HIP,” said Alex Weinert, Director of Identity Security at Microsoft and HIP Conference speaker. “Identity security has never been more important. Our team sees first-hand the increasing volume and sophistication of attacks that prey on vulnerable accounts. HIP will provide a great forum to learn from each other. Working together, we have the opportunity to do much more to protect users from account compromise.”
HIP Conference 2020 strongly encourages a culture of knowledge-sharing, where speakers engage in conversations both on and off the stage. Attendees can expect to dive deeply into identity-related topics including:
Navigating the hybrid identity threat landscape
Implementing a passwordless authentication strategy
Defending identity services
Recovering from ransomware attacks
Publishing on-premises applications for B2E and B2B
“HIP brings together the industry’s foremost identity experts with topics that are focused on securing hybrid identity systems, primarily Microsoft Active Directory and Azure Active Directory,” said Gil Kirkpatrick, Chief Architect at Semperis and HIP Conference founder. “Our mission is to connect technology gurus and practitioners in an environment where they can exchange information, share war stories, and ultimately make their networks and applications more secure.”
HIP Conference 2020 is hosted by Semperis in partnership with Microsoft. Admission includes all food, beverages, and conference materials. Attendees can qualify for up to 16 continuing professional education (CPE) credits. For more information about HIP Conference 2020 and to learn about other HIP events, visit hipconf.com.
