The award-winning conference series and podcast for identity-centric security practitioners announces an upcoming event in New York City to wrap up its multi-city global roadshow
HOBOKEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Semperis, a pioneer of identity-driven cyber resilience for enterprises, today announced its 2022 Hybrid Identity Protection (HIP) roadshow is coming to New York on November 9. The HIP roadshow kicked off earlier this year in London and is making its way across the globe with upcoming events in Paris (September 29), Frankfurt (October 11), and now New York City, where the conference series was founded in 2016. The one-day live event in NYC brings together experts working at the intersection between identity and security to deliver technical presentations, participate in panel discussions, and network with attendees. Registration is required to attend HIP NYC.
The agenda at HIP NYC centers on the emerging category of identity threat detection and response (ITDR). Gartner included ITDR in its top cybersecurity trends for 2022, noting that credential misuse is a primary method attackers use to access systems and achieve their goals. Specifically, the identity systems Microsoft Active Directory (AD) and Azure AD, used in over 90% of enterprises, are coming under sustained attack.
“Identity threat detection and response is top of mind for every CISO and IT team worldwide, especially with the prevalence of hybrid environments,” said Gil Kirkpatrick, founding member of the HIP Conference and Semperis Chief Architect. “This year’s conference will help equip these teams with the know-how to fight back against identity-based attacks, especially those targeting Active Directory and Azure AD. Our team is very excited to be back in person and in the birthplace of HIP—New York—to help solve some of the most complex challenges in cybersecurity.”
The HIP conference is partnering with the NY Information Security Meetup, one of the largest independent infosec meetups in the United States with over 5,000 active members, to produce HIP NYC. NY Information Security Meetup founder, David Raviv, a Forbes contributor and well-known cybersecurity podcaster, will co-host the event.
“The New York Metro area is a hotbed for leading tech firms, cybersecurity innovation and top talent,” said Raviv. “As a big supporter of the HIP community, I’m honored to join the HIP conference, share ideas, and collaborate to help thwart identity and access exploits that plague our industry.”
HIP NYC is being held at Rise New York (43 W 23rd St.), located in the heart of New York’s Silicon Alley, near the Flatiron. For more information about the 2022 HIP roadshow and to register for HIP NYC and other events, visit: https://www.hipconf.com.
