About this talk

Everyone is talking about passkeys - but what are they, and what do they mean for the future of authentication? A passkey is a more secure replacement for passwords, which stops phishing in its tracks. Passkey technology is the cybersecurity industry’s attempt to streamline, modernize and rebrand authentication lexicon, even if the underlying technology is essentially identical to FIDO2/WebAuthn, which have existed since 2018. Join our webinar to learn: - Top authentication misconceptions - Where passkeys fit into the future of authentication - Different passkey implementations and security and usability tradeoffs - How to build a modern phishing-resistant MFA strategy that defeats modern threats Confidentiality and Data Processing: The information you provide in this form will be held in confidence by Yubico, Inc. and its Affiliates.
