Welcome to the first episode of The Security Series: Simplify, Secure, Strategise!
Employee productivity is at the heart of LastPass’ security measures. Having to manually remember passwords and credentials can cause lockouts and resets, causing distractions and reducing working time. According to LastPass, 80% of data breaches can be traced to weak, reused and stolen credentials. Data breaches and poor password management can be detrimental to employee productivity, and is another example of how effective security measures can enhance the work of your employees.
However, this is not to say that all security measures improve productivity. For example, adding overly complex security solutions can get in the way of employee productivity, and lots of security measures fail to meet user experience demands. Further, it is vital that security efforts are complementary across your organization, providing you with better insights into user behavior.
How can you implement security strategies that aid employee productivity, rather than hindering it?
In this session, we will discuss:

- The benefits of an all in one authentication system, as well as a multi factor authentication system
- How to implement flexible authentication, and what this can do for your security and productivity
