Envisioning a Passwordless World
For almost all organizations, passwords are a necessary part of day-to-day work, but security leaders and CISOs know that passwords are the weak link in any security chain. Passwords are easily hacked or compromised by attackers, and trying to ensure that workers and employees follow basic cyber hygiene, including resetting passwords on a regular basis, is a nearly impossible task.

Organizations need a fresh approach, one that combines the best of how multifactor authentication works with technologies such as biometrics, to create a world where passwords are no longer needed. This not only ensures better security but also eliminates usability issues. It ensures that employees can complete work and access the systems and apps that they need without being burdened by the hassle of resetting passwords on a set schedule.

Discussion topics will include:

  • The challenges of creating a true passwordless world and how organizations can undertake this journey;
  • Improving the user experience for employees and cutting down on the friction of memorizing and resetting passwords;
  • Reducing IT overhead costs with a new approach;
  • Strengthening an organization’s overall security posture.


Join ISMG’s Georg Holzach for a moderated discussion that will feature insight from Richard Archdeacon, Advisory CISO of Duo Security at Cisco.
