Semperis Brings Award-Winning Hybrid Identity Protection Conference to Europe, Keynotes Announced
Semperis, the pioneer in identity-driven cyber resilience for enterprises, today announced that it will host the inaugural Hybrid Identity Protection (HIP) Europe Virtual Conference 2021, taking place virtually on 30 June and 1 July 2021. The first European edition of the award-winning global Hybrid Identity Protection conference series, HIP Europe will bring together leading experts working at the intersection between identity and security to provide a deep dive into the latest trends and challenges in managing hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Keynote speakers will include Microsoft MVP Tony Redmond, aka the Exchange Godfather and author of numerous books and blogs on Microsoft Exchange and Office 365, and Microsoft Directory Services MVP and identity guru John Craddock, who has played a key role architecting identity and security solutions for industry leaders including Microsoft, the UK Government and multi-national businesses.
Organisations globally are struggling to keep up with the skyrocketing proliferation of cyberattacks — including the infamous SolarWinds supply-chain attack and the Hafnium attack on Microsoft Exchange — that target identity systems, especially Active Directory. HIP Europe will connect technology gurus and practitioners in an environment where they can exchange information, share war stories, and ultimately make their networks and applications more secure.
The HIP conference has earned its place as the premier educational forum for identity-centric cybersecurity leaders tasked with defending hybrid environments. First established in the US and now coming to Europe, the conference series is designed to advance the skills of IT and cybersecurity professionals through highly technical demonstrations, expert roundtables, and networking sessions. Attendees will learn best practices from local identity and access management (IAM) experts and Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs), and connect with peers facing similar infrastructure and security challenges.
The two-day conference programme is packed with actionable insights for practitioners, from discussing the future of cloud security to identifying and recovering from directory breaches and cyber disasters. Highlights include:
- The Future of Microsoft Cloud Services. In this keynote session, Tony Redmond will look at the economics, software engineering, ecosystem and landscape of Microsoft 365 and discuss the reliability and security of Office 365.
- The Future of Identity: DIDs and VCs. This keynote by John Craddock will be an introduction to the future of identity with Decentralised Identifiers (DIDs) and Verifiable Credentials (VCs). What if users owned their identity without dependence on identity providers and only needed to prove who they are once, using that proof as often as necessary?
- Cloud Security: What’s Next? Providing a simple and unified hybrid security management engine that spans the heterogeneous space of on-premises, shared data centre and cloud is a key challenge. This session will sketch the current cloud security landscape and what challenges lie ahead for hybrid organisations.
- Deploying a Zero Trust Infrastructure. This session will demonstrate how to implement the principles of Zero Trust within a Microsoft hybrid cloud infrastructure, building on the Microsoft security stack with Azure AD, Control and Conditional Access Management features and Microsoft 365 Defender suite.
Keynote speaker and identity guru John Craddock comments: “Almost all organisations consume services from the cloud and are possibly shifting their own services to the cloud, building valuable collaborative environments providing access for their users, partners and consumers. The security boundary stretches and morphs as we create these new hybrid systems. With these elastic boundaries, identity becomes the critical component in securing our assets and managing access control. At the Hybrid Identity Protection conference, attendees can learn from industry leaders how to identify potential vulnerabilities and protect their systems for the future. A paradigm shift is around the corner with Decentralised Identity and Verifiable Credentials. My keynote will explain the benefits of this exciting new technology.”
Guido Grillenmeier, Chief Technologist at Semperis and Microsoft MVP alumnus for Directory Services, adds: “We’re excited to bring the HIP conference to Europe for the first time. It promises an amazing line-up of the world’s foremost hybrid identity experts covering today’s hottest identity security topics: the future of cloud services, cloud security and identity itself. Zero Trust is the name of the game when it comes to preventing malicious actors from stealing the keys to your kingdom – your most privileged accounts – be it on-premises or in the cloud. HIP Europe will give solid insights into how it is done right. Due to the pandemic, this will be a fully virtual experience, and it is free to attend. Security professionals can expect to discuss learnings from recent cyber incidents, experiences in recovering from attacks and how to defend modern environments against emerging threats.”
The global HIP event was established by Semperis in 2016 and has won several awards, including the 2021 Globee Business Awards – Gold Winner, Achievement of the Year in Live Events, the 2020 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards – Best Cybersecurity Conference, the Golden Bridge Business and Innovation Awards – Gold Winner, Live Event of the Year, and the 2020 IT World Awards – Bronze Winner, Security Awareness Computer-Based Training.
HIP Europe attendees can qualify for up to 12 continuing professional education (CPE) credits.

Teva Presents New Data at 7th European Academy of Neurology Congress Suggesting Socio-Economic Factors May Contribute to the Significant Under-Diagnosis of Migraine21.6.2021 14:01:00 CEST | Press release
Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NYSE and TASE: TEVA) today presented new epidemiology data on migraine from the State of Israel which indicate that socio-economic factors may contribute to underdiagnosis of migraine across society1. A retrospective study of migraine epidemiology in Southern Israel, supported by Teva and presented at the virtual 7th Congress of the European Academy of Neurology (EAN), found extreme variability in the prevalence of diagnosed patients with migraine across the geographic area studied. Prevalence rates were positively associated with the socio-economic status of the geographic area studied, suggesting that those living with migraine from less advantaged areas may find it harder to achieve an accurate diagnosis and thereby access appropriate therapy. “These findings are concerning not least because they suggest significant ‘migraine awareness inequity’ in this population,” said Professor Gal Ifergane, study investigator, practitioner, head of the Depart
