Premier authentication conference returns for third year; call-for-speakers open

SEATTLE, February 15, 2022  —  The FIDO Alliance is pleased to announce the return of Authenticate, the only industry conference dedicated to the who, what, and where of user authentication. Authenticate, featuring Signature Sponsors Google, Microsoft, Visa and Yubico, will take place at the Sheraton Grand in Seattle, Washington and virtually on October 17-19, 2022. 

Aimed at CISOs, security strategists, enterprise architects, and product and business leaders, this is the third consecutive year that the FIDO Alliance is hosting the public conference.
