About this talk

Recent global events are driving up numbers of teleworkers/remote workers along with an increased use of personal devices and mobiles phones for access to government systems. This introduces new challenges for government agencies. Unsecured WiFi networks, unmanaged personal mobile devices, and phishing scams make it easy to steal user credentials and difficult to securely manage geographically dispersed teams. CAC and PIV cards are cumbersome to implement for every teleworker and for use with mobile and personal devices. SMS and OTP device-based software authenticators aren’t secure alternatives, and in the case of BYOD/BYOAD, put the government on point to reimburse employees and contractors for mobile costs. Government agencies need to provide enhanced authentication that is secure, doesn’t create high recurring expenses and can enable personnel to securely work in any location, on any device, and across any network. Attend this webinar to learn how federal and other government agencies should handle authentication in a telecommuting and mobile-first world: - How recent events are necessitating the need for alternative authentication for teleworkers - How legacy authentication solutions are ineffective and costly - How to deploy highest assurance authentication for teleworkers, mobile derived PIV and BYOD/BYOAD use cases - How to ensure highest assurance multi-factor authentication (MFA) for teleworkers that are non PIV/non CAC eligible Speakers: - Danelle Barrett, Principal, Deep Water Point (Former Rear Admiral, Director Navy Cyber Security and Deputy Chief Information Officer) - Jeff Philips, Vice President Government, Yubico - Derek Hanson, Vice President Solutions Architecture and Alliances, Yubico
