“HIP brings together the industry’s foremost IAM and IT security authorities 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 experts and practitioners in an environment where they can exchange information, share war stories, and ultimately make their jobs easier and their networks and applications more secure.”

“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.”
