The State of Strong Authentication

The FIDO Alliance was launched in 2013 with the audacious goal: to change the very nature of authentication. To move the entire world away from usernames and passwords and traditional multi-factor authentication with an open and free web standard that makes authentication simpler and stronger. It’s 2021, so why are passwords still persisting? The session will answer that question, and detail the progress that has been made towards standardizing strong authentication and the opportunity for companies to start on a journey past passwords.

Join Andrew Shikiar, executive director of FIDO Alliance, as we look the past year from the FIDO standards lens, including:
-- The impacts of Covid-19 on digital transformation plans and securing remote workforces & where strong authentication has fit in
-- Progress global organizations have made toward going truly passwordless
-- Considerations for strong authentication when seeking compliance with regulation such as PSD2 SCA
-- What other areas, such as identity verification, that need to be strengthened to better secure the web

-- Attendees will understand how a global pandemic affected companies' digital transformation plans, including strong authentication projects

Key Takaways: 


-- Attendees will learn the status of efforts to standardize strong authentication, and where support stands today
-- Attendees will be able to analyze their strong authentication options for complying with regulation like PSD2 SCA
-- Attendees will be able to explain how identity verification and authentication relate, and efforts in motion to better secure both areas
