Welcome to week three of Identiverse Virtual 2020! This year, Identiverse is a series of free virtual sessions that you can attend from the comfort of your home. Microsoft is proud to sponsor this week, June 29-July 3, and join the brightest mind in the industry to share about latest technologies, industry trends, and best practices. We have a full slate of speakers with several sessions scheduled throughout the conference which ends on August 6. Learn more about our sessions covering important topics in our industry, such as Zero Trust, open standards and decentralized identities, privacy, and more.

 

We encourage you to join us on Wednesday, July 1st at 9 AM PST for a keynote delivered by Alex Simons, CVP of Program Management Identity, followed by a sponsored session with Nitika Gupta, Principal Program Manager Identity Security.

 

Alex will share the latest news on open identity standards and how innovators are using them to make the digital world safer and more equitable. After showing demos of some awesome FIDO 2 implementations, he’ll delve into the rising importance of Zero Trust and standards that are critical for supporting the new normal of remote work. He’ll then explore the role that decentralized identity systems and related standards will play to help us manage everyday digital interactions in a world forever changed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Register here for this keynote.

 

In her session, Nitika will explain why, with the current shift to a remote workforce, a Zero Trust approach to securing data and resources is more important than ever. She will also share some actionable steps that organizations can take to start their Zero Trust journey. Register here for this session.
