ISSA Thought Leadership Series: Passwordless Authentication

Presented by

ISSA International

About this talk

Why passwords are a thin illusion of protection and what to do about it. Passwords have become nothing more than a thin illusion of protection. Human nature and human error are the weakest links in protecting organizations from cyberattacks and data breaches. Users choose poor passwords and then re-use them across multiple applications and systems, leaving them vulnerable to phishing and social engineering by bad actors. For years, users have been encouraged to create complex passwords and change them frequently. It is time to remove human error from the equation. The adoption of passwordless authentication protects against phishing attempts and minimizes the threat of stolen credentials. Passwordless technology generally combines: Multi-layered risk analysis that evaluates location, devices, access rights and typing sequences; Intricate yet convenient 2FA/MFA methods; Biometrics and hardware authentication keys Learn how passwordless authentication works and how it can help you increase security while reducing friction for your users. Speakers: Stephen Cox, Vice President and Chief Security Architect, SecureAuth Mike McKinzie, Solutions Advisor, Swivel Secure
