For years, cyber experts have warned that user authentication often is the weakest link in an organization’s cybersecurity strategy. The problem? A continuing reliance on the password, which is easily compromised by even the most rudimentary cyber-attacks. But the recent spate of high-profile data breaches has made it clear that better security measures are needed. Federal CIO Tony Scott drove home that point in a July 31 blog post, saying that requiring the use of strong authentication is “one of the most significant steps any organization can take to reduce the risk of adversaries penetrating networks and systems.”
In this webcast, LaChelle LeVan, Chief Architect, Federal Identity, Credential and Access Management at GSA and Paul Grassi, Senior Standards and Technology Advisor at NIST, will discuss how agencies can move beyond an over-reliance on the password and make strong authentication an integral component of their cybersecurity strategy.
