FIDO Alliance Authenticate Virtual Conference
November 9, 2020 – November 20, 2020 EST
Relying on passwords is passé. Modern authentication systems and standards have emerged to provide more efficient ways for organizations to provide strong security and better interactions with their brands.
Welcome to Authenticate, the first conference dedicated to the who, what, why and how of user authentication – with a focus on the FIDO standards-based approach. Authenticate, a conference hosted by FIDO Alliance, is the place for CISOs, security strategists, enterprise architects, and product and business leaders to get all of the education, tools and best practices to roll out modern authentication across web, enterprise and government applications.
As FIDO recasts the conference to a virtual-only format, it will expand it to a multi-day November event spread across all time zones to accommodate global participation, including live Q&A sessions with presenters. The virtual format allows for sponsoring companies to showcase their solutions through virtual exhibit booths and other branding and networking opportunities.
The conference agenda contains informative content on authentication, with a focus on the FIDO approach, including these topics:
- Case studies from service and technology providers including CVS Health, EMILY’s List, Facebook, Google, IBM, Mass Mutual, Microsoft, MITRE Corporation, NTT DOCOMO, PNC Bank, and Target
- Sessions on the state of authentication, building an authentication strategy, and how FIDO fits with initiatives like W3C Web Payments, and EMVCo 3DS and SRC
- Standards and technical implementation presentations focusing on FIDO for identity verification; bringing FIDO Authentication to IoT; OpenID for open banking; standards and the future of payments; FIDO certification; attestation and more
- Policy discussions around PSD2, GDPR and eIDAS; authentication to enable better privacy for citizens; authentication from a regulator’s perspective and more
