Presented by

Roger Grimes (KnowBe4), David Littman (Truth In IT)

About this talk

What really makes a “strong” password? And why are your end-users tortured with them in the first place? How do hackers crack your passwords with ease? And what can/should you do about your authentication methods? For decades, end-users have borne the brunt of the password tyranny, a result of the IT industries’ inability to engineer secure systems. Password complexity, length, and rotation requirements are the bane of your end-user experience and literally the cause of thousands of data breaches. But it doesn't have to be that way! Join Roger Grimes, KnowBe4's Data-Driven Defense Evangelist, and David Littman from Truth In IT to find out what your password policy should be and learn about the common mistakes organizations make when creating password policy. In this webinar you'll learn: - Why passwords are so easy to hack and how the bad guys do it - How to craft a secure, risk-focused password security policy - The truth about password managers and multi-factor authentication and how they impact your risk - How to empower your end users to become your best last line of defense
