Overview

Despite the continued success by attackers to brute-force accounts, phish credentials, and otherwise impact the online security of consumers, a large portion of the sites and services consumers utilize still don't take authentication security seriously enough.

This presentation reviews security expert Mark Stanislav's recent research into the state of end-user-facing authentication security as it relates to strong authentication, transport security, breach history, security transparency, and complementary browser security features.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • About the current risks and realities surrounding authentication security
  • How organizations can protect consumer authentication and deploy relevant browser security features
  • Which consumer sites and services are most focused on ensuring the best defense against attackers
