Modern Authentication Methods and Passwordless Adoption: A Path Forward    
The saying, ‘hackers don’t break in, they log in’ has been circulating for years, but even as organizations continue to adopt multifactor authentication, attackers are getting better at learning how to bypass it. With a steady increase of social engineering attacks – with engineers being targeted in attacks – in the first half of 2023 and credential harvesting/theft a continued top threat, organizations should consider ways to upgrade their MFA and authentication methods and move on a path of passwordless adoption. This symposium explains how to make progress in that journey.

  • Understand the strengths and weaknesses of a variety of authentication methods, as well as layered on MFA efforts
  • Hear how passwordless solutions effectively defend against both MFA bypass attacks and more advanced adversary-in-the-middle attacks
  • Address ways to overcome common challenges to passwordless adoption, how to prioritize your deployment, and other steps to move forward towards modern authentication methods such as such as the Microsoft Authenticator, Windows Hello or the industry standard FIDO standards
