It’s a password-less future. Or is it?

Here are a few teasers to get you inspired to listen up:

These days, you likely have between 20 and 90 accounts that require a password. Given that 80% of breaches today are due to a compromised password, the question is: Is there still a role for passwords in the future?

The challenge with getting rid of passwords is that they are cheap to implement, easy to use, and are replaceable — unlike biometric authentication options.

Similar to the seatbelt safety issue, new regulations may be required, cultural changes will be necessary, and additional privacy standards may need to be applied for this to happen. The good news is, today’s guests all feel that the future of the Internet looks bright, safe, simpler and dynamic!
