Passwords are a major security vulnerability: 63 percent of all 2015 data breaches occurred because of compromised passwords, easily making them the most commonly exploited vector of attack. [/two_third]
Against this backdrop, industry is innovating – creating new authentication solutions that are both more secure and easier to use.
On October 27, in recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, industry leaders and policymakers will explore the impact of these new solutions and their impact on the policy and regulatory landscape at the Future of Authentication Policy Day.
With the White House and NCSA launching a major campaign this month to promote consumer uptake of strong authentication, it’s clear that alternatives to the passwords are here today. Speakers are expected to include regulators – OCC, HHS and the FTC – as well as think tanks, security and industry executives who will detail how the authentication market has evolved and how policy must evolve with it.
Invitees include: staff from Capitol Hill and regulators, think tanks, ETA members, trade associations, lawyers, and representatives of the media.
