Registration is Now Open for Identity and Security Professionals’ Premier Industry Event.


Semperis, the leading provider of Active Directory protection and recovery solutions, announced today during the RSA Conference that registration has opened for the 2018 Hybrid Identity Protection Conference. This year’s event, which brings together identity and security experts from across the globe, will be held on November 5th and 6th at the Renaissance Midtown Hotel in New York. The conference offers attendees critical technical knowledge, best practices and education on how to secure the evolving enterprise identity infrastructure.

“I’m excited to partner again this year with Semperis to present this year’s Hybrid Identity Protection Conference,” said Gil Kirkpatrick, CTO of ViewDS and founding father of the original Directory Experts Conference. “Last year’s conference was a great success, and we’ve been working together to make sure this year’s speaker lineup is even better. Cloud computing has totally changed the way we deal with enterprise identity and access management, and HIP provides the best forum to learn from expert practitioners as well as share experiences with your peers in IT. Connecting with the HIP community is one of the best ways to get yourself up the learning curve of hybrid identity management and to ensure your organization’s success as it moves to hybrid cloud IT.”

The 2018 Hybrid Identity Protection Conference will host more than 20 distinguished panelists and speakers, including Gil Kirkpatrick, CTO at ViewDS, Pamela Dingle, Director of Identity Standards at Microsoft, Nitika Gupta, Program Manager – Identity Protection at Microsoft, and Darren Mar-Elia, Head of Product at Semperis. These speakers will be sharing, among other topics, the latest techniques for modernizing and securing identity platforms as they extend into the cloud.

“We’ve got a great initial roster of speakers and are looking forward to announcing more conference details in the coming weeks,” said Mickey Bresman, CEO of Semperis. “This conference offers industry professionals a unique opportunity to network with peers and share knowledge on how to protect and secure the enterprise identity. With attacks on Directory Services growing more sophisticated, it’s important that we stay on top of these issues as a community and use our collective thinking to protect the on-prem, in-cloud and hybrid organizational identity.”
