Authenticate is the industry’s only conference dedicated to all aspects of user authentication – with a focus on FIDO standards-based sign-ins with passkeys. Authenticate brings together a community of CISOs, business leaders, product managers, security strategists and identity architects from all over the globe to share expertise, network, and bring actionable insights back into their own organizations.

The focus of the program for the Authenticate 2024 conference is “enabling your organization’s next steps towards passwordless.” Global organizations are in varying stages of passwordless rollouts, and the Authenticate program committee is seeking presentations that provide actionable content to move attendees to their own next step – or many steps.

1. Choose what you want to share with a community ready for the next step

The committee seeks vendor-neutral, educational presentations that focus on authentication implementations and best practices for specific steps of the passwordless journey for consumer and workforce rollouts across regulated and non-regulated industries, including:     

  • Learning / discovery / ideation
  • Building the business case / gaining organizational buy-in 
  • How to make build / buy decisions 
  • Project roadmapping
  • Technical implementation 
  • User experience implementation and testing
  • Customer and employee education
  • Piloting and expanding rollouts
  • Cost / benefit analysis and assessing ROI
  • Authentication vision and futures

Potential speakers will be asked to choose a maximum of two areas for each session. The committee will also consider other topics that are closely related to user authentication and account lifecycle management including remote identity verification, biometrics, device authentication and emerging and/or complementary standards in the space. 

2. Choose your session type

Authenticate 2024 will provide a variety of session types. Potential speakers will be asked to select a session type that best fits their content and presentation style, from these: 

  • Track presentation – track sessions with visionary and/or actionable authentication content; typically 20 minutes (typically one speaker with a max of two speakers)
  • Panel – lively discussions on pertinent and/or controversial authentication topics; typically 45 minutes (one moderator and up to three panelists)
  • Hands-on lab – interactive education sessions that gives attendees the opportunity to build and improve their skills and/or knowledge on a particular aspect of authentication; typically 90 minutes (up to three instructors)
