The security of our digital IDs has never been more important: from cloud services that have kept businesses functioning through the rapid shift to remote working, to providing access to essential consumer services.
Yet businesses still put their users and customers through undue suffering - and leave themselves exposed to security compromises - when it comes to accessing their systems and authentication.
Username and password authentication is still one of the most widely used methods, yet they fail on both security and user experience. Remembering passwords is painful and solutions such as MFA and password vaults not only create extra friction for the user but are not as secure as they seem. Password compromises are the number one cause of hacking-related breaches. When it comes to securing our digital IDs it is time for a rethink.
This virtual roundtable will give you the opportunity to network with your peers as we discuss how to solve one of the biggest security challenges and how new approaches to secure authentication can unlock potential for business users and consumers in providing a safe, secure and seamless experience for accessing apps and services online.
Areas for discussion will include:
How did we get here?
- Passwords and pitfalls
- Why it’s time to ‘right the wrongs’ and rethink authentication
Where are we now:
-How cybersecurity and identity management requirements need to evolve post COVID
-Modern authentication in the hybrid working and cloud era
