Day 2 @ 11:35

Have you built a brick house ? Operational considerations of implementing Strong Authentication

  • Data breaches are costly, disruptive and unfortunately, increasing.The majority of data breaches today are still caused by stolen login credentials.Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is generally recognised as a sound mitigation strategy to prevent phishing and man in the middle attacks.As the sophistication of attacks increases, traditional two-factor authentication techniques (2FA) are no longer adequate.
  • With FIDO2/WebAuthn standards for MFA, organisations can benefit from a frictionless user experience whilst strengthening security to prevent phishing and MitM attacks.The FIDO2/WebAuthn standards also pave the way for a future passwordless authentication experience.
  • Understand why a brick house keeps the attackers at bay.
