Reading Time: 2 minutes


On September 20, 2022, Raymond Comvalius and I will present a 50-minute session on Windows Hello for Business at the third Cloud Identity Summit, organized by the Azure Bonn user group.

About the Cloud Identity Summit

The Cloud Identity Summit aims to bring together people from different areas of Identity and Access Management (IAM) and provide an open community platform for collaboration and exchange of ideas.

The Cloud Identity Summit focuses on Cloud Identity Management, various aspects such as identity protection, managing external accounts, passwordless and much more. The Cloud Identity Summit is a free event that focuses on the exchange between the participants. The group of participants is international and comes from different areas and industries.

The third Cloud Identity Summit will take place on September 22, 2022. After two great (virtual) conferences Thomas Naunheim, Rene dé la Motte, Gregor Reimling and Melanie Eibl are looking ahead and plan the 3rd edition as a hybrid event and of course still free of charge. They had to look for a new location at short notice and are happy to be able to hold the conference at adesso SE.

The conference will consist of two parts: The morning workshops will only be held on-site in Bonn. The afternoon sessions and the subsequent roundtable with all experts will be available both on-site in Bonn and online.

The Cloud Identity Summit features two tracks:

  1. Identity Management (09:30-16:30)
    In the Identity Management track, the morning is filled with an interactive workshop on Microsoft Entra Verified Identities by Stefan van der Wiele. After lunch, Jan Vidar Elven, David Frappart and Christopher Brumm present on topics related to managing identity in the Microsoft ecosystem.
  2. Identity Security (09:30 – 17:30)
    Nestorii Syynimaa kicks off the Identity Security track, with a workshop on AADInternals. After lunch, Eric Berg, Sergey Chubarov, David O’Brien, Raymond Comvalius and I present on sessions on securing identity in the Microsoft ecosystem.

After the sessions, a roundtable and raffle concludes the day.

About our session

Raymond and I will present a 50-minute session on:

Windows Hello for Business Hybrid Access: How Does It Work Under The Covers?

4:30 PM – 5:20 PM, Identity Security Track

As weak, stolen and cracked passwords are at the root of 80% of cybersecurity incidents, Passwordless has the potential to change the world. Under the covers, Windows Hello for Business, Microsoft's Passwordless solution, has already changed the authentication paradigm for Active Directory.

Regardless of the device being domain-joined, hybrid Azure AD-joined or Azure AD-joined, you can access organizational resources without specifying credentials.

In this session, Raymond and I explain how Windows Hello works in all three scenarios and what you need to get it going for your organization.

Join us!

The Cloud Identity Summit is a free in-person event. Registration is open via the Azure Bonn Meetup Site German.
