Passwords are a hassle, and they're expensive to manage. They're also inherently insecure. Are organizations still required forced resets and enforcing complex passwords and other inconveniences that users tend to resist? Would organizations, if they could, get rid of passwords and use other forms of authentication (for example, multifactor options embedded in Windows 10)?

This webcast will explore the results of the SANS 2021Password Survey, including how many passwords users and admins have to perform their work tasks, and how organizations are managing their passwords across users, apps, and devices.
