Award-winning conference comes to France for the first time, bringing together cybersecurity, identity management and operations experts to solve complex hybrid identity challenges

Paris, France – Semperis, the pioneer in identity-driven cyber resilience for enterprises, today announced the dates and preliminary speaker line-up for its first annual Hybrid Identity Protection (HIP) Conference taking place in Paris on September 29th, 2022. The award-winning conference will feature insights from leading cybersecurity, identity and access management (IAM) and IT infrastructure and operations (I&O) experts, who work every day to defend hybrid and multi-cloud IT environments, as well as plenty of time for networking with peers.

HIP is the premier educational forum for advancing the skills of security practitioners through highly technical demonstrations and collaborative workshops. HIP France 2022 is a free in-person conference and will be held at the Accenture office in Paris. Tickets are available now.

“Accenture is proud to be hosting the first live HIP Conference in France. I’ve been part of the HIP community for several years now and I’m happy that Accenture can help bring the conference to Paris and support it as a live event,” said Ben Cauwel, Security Senior Manager at Accenture. “It’s exciting to bring together the French HIP community for a day of great content and networking time.”

As organisations continue to transition from on-premises to cloud-based identity systems, the potential attack surface for bad actors is increasing exponentially. To help practitioners defend their environments against the heightened threat, he one-day conference will consist of a keynote presentation on how to tighten Active Directory (AD) security, deep-dive sessions on cyber security, disaster recovery and Zero Trust, an expert panel – as well as myriad networking opportunities designed to exchange information, share war stories, and ultimately make enterprise identity environments more secure.

“After a great day at HIP London in June, I’m looking forward to giving the keynote at HIP France in September,” said Guido Grillenmeier, Chief Technologist at Semperis and keynote speaker for HIP France. “I’ve spoken at several HIP Conferences now, and I love the community feel that comes with a HIP Conference. It’s always a great discussion, and I can’t wait to be part of that again.”
