Sessions:

The onslaught of account takeover attacks from insecure passwords is driving the rapid adoption of passwordless solutions.  While the risk reduction benefits are substantial, eliminating passwords is just the first step on the path to fundamentally strong authentication.  In the “new normal” era of work from anywhere, and rapidly increasing cloud adoption, organizations are moving to a new risk-based authentication model.  Advanced organizations are validating users, their devices, and inspecting the security posture of the device for each login.  Strong and continuous authentication is a fundamental building block of Zero Trust. Learn how you can make it happen without making the user experience miserable.

 

Discussion topics include:

  • New cybersecurity and identity management requirements in the post COVID era
  • Traditional MFA vs Passwordless - avoiding the “security vs. painful user experience” tradeoff
  • Device trust and the confluence of cybersecurity and identity management
  • Continuous risk-based authentication 

Takeaways:

  • Account takeovers and other attacks have increased as a result of distributed working - adopting a solution that removes passwords removes most of the risk
  • MFA has evolved beyond the traditional “password + SMS + pin” approach
  • CISO’s and IT no longer have to trade increased security for user convenience
  • Modern devices allow organizations to leverage the Secure Enclave / Trusted Platform Module for increased security
  • Continuous, risk-based authentication is a key factor in identity and access management

Speaker:


The hybrid mix of remote and office work combined with digital transformation initiatives is driving the rapid adoption of cloud. This trend is also prompting organizations to rethink requirements for authenticating employees and other members of an organization supply chain. Companies are now exploring how to significantly improve both security and the end user experience. Unfortunately traditional multi-factor authentication is lacking in both areas. 

 

Discussion topics include:

  • How is the post COVID era changing the security and identity / access management landscape?
  • Should traditional MFA still be the “go to”?
  • What new requirements have emerged and why?
  • What approaches are advanced customers adopting?
  • What is the difference between Traditional MFA and newer options?
  • Is device trust important?  Why or why not?
  • What is the role of continuous, risk-based authentication?
