“What is the Passwordless future and will human behaviors still impact cyber security posture.”

We hosted a Singapore Dinner for 23 CISOs & CIOs on behalf of LastPass discussing…

Despite the creation of the first passwords 60 years ago, they are still the most common way we authenticate across our daily lives today. As our lives have become more digital the sheer volume of passwords has become a cognitive burden.

The Lindy effect of passwords has also ensured they continue to pose the largest risk to all companies globally, especially as it relates to human behaviours.

Such thinking is backed by statistics drawn from the likes of the annual Verizon DBIR that regularly show that approximately 80% of breaches are related to credential theft, etc. The OAIC’s Notifiable Data Breach reports regularly highlight brute force attacks, credential theft, and phishing as key causes of breaches locally. Human is at the centre of this issue.

But is there a way to mitigate the risks of today and plan for the future?

In this executive roundtable we explored:

  • How can businesses reduce the risk of human behaviours and passwords today to improve cyber security posture?
  • How business can accelerate Passwordless authentication.
  • How to explain Passwordless risk buy down to the board.  
  • How to manage a comprehensive identity solution balance the control IT needs with the experienced users expect
