FIDO Alliance Announces Authenticate 2021 Conference Coming in October

Call for speakers now opened

SEATTLE, April 6, 2021Authenticate, the only industry conference dedicated to the who, what, why and how of user authentication with a focus on the FIDO standards-based approach, is coming in October 2021. This is the second year the FIDO Alliance is hosting this public conference to provide CISOs, security strategists, enterprise architects, product and business leaders with all the education, tools and best practices to roll out modern authentication across web, enterprise and government applications.

Last year’s Authenticate conference featured 50+ sessions, including detailed case studies, technical tutorials and expert panels — all helping educate attendees on business drivers, technical considerations and overall best practices for deploying modern authentication systems. The 2021 event will again focus on providing excellent content, a dynamic expo hall, and other networking opportunities while adhering to all CDC and local health/distancing requirements.
