Closing the Gaps in Your Security Posture

About this talk

Government IT teams work incredibly hard to ensure their networks stay safe and secure. Many state and local government agencies that have deployed mobile-based authentication are experiencing MFA security gaps caused by employees that can’t, don’t or won’t use mobile authentication. These gaps increase the risk of successful phishing attacks and account takeovers. Two important – and related – ways to close those gaps are hardware security keys and cyber insurance plans. Hardware security keys address a significant challenge related to multifactor authentication (MFA). In addition to MFA, effective cyber defense also includes cyber insurance. Watch this discussion with Steve Nichols, the CTO of the Georgia Technology Authority; Shannon Lawson, the CISO for the city of Phoenix; and Yubico Public Sector Vice President Jeff Phillips on how hardware security keys complement mobile-based authentication to help agencies get to 100 percent MFA coverage and the best achievable cyber insurance.
