The Castaway Society: Identity for Inclusion Isn’t Charity

Bianca Lopes | Identity Strategist

When it comes to financial inclusion, the truth is that most people think about some Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program or full-on charity for developing countries. This is straight up wrong! Identity for Financial Inclusion (IFI) isn’t about charity—it’s about business. It’s been calculated that a 1% increase in inclusion would result in a 3.6% increase in […]

The Future of Authentication: Cloudy with a Chance of Compromised Credentials

Steve Tout | CEO, VeriClouds

We live in an era in which customers no longer need to ask whether their credentials or sensitive data have been involved in a data breach or not. We are all victims now, and forward-thinking security leaders are responsible for leading the inquiry, “How at-risk are my users and my organization?” Our digital landscape is […]

YubiKey Scored “Pretty Positive” in BYU Study

Scott Mace | Freelance Journalist

Two-factor authentication via a smartphone has appeal since so many of us carry smartphones, but it isn’t the only hardware game in town. Think smaller—devices only large enough to permit users to press a button. There are several such devices on the market already, and one is the YubiKey from YubiCo. But how usable are […]

Can You Identify When it’s Safe to Connect Things?

Robert Brown | IoT Consultant

Internet-connected things are already here. More are on the way, so everything is fixed, right? The IoT has faced a fair share of unseemly headlines, and it’s likely there will be many more until things are appropriately secured against attack. Easy to write, hard to achieve. What are we defending against when data security can […]

This is especially true of the Internet of Things (IoT) tsunami hitting our digital shores these days.

As the @FIDOAlliance continues to strive for a stronger #authentication world w/o #passwords, the rapid adoption of the #FIDO2 standard is showing a lot of promise. Read this #Identiverse blog for FIDO2 specs & how it’s enabling deployment at scale. https://t.co/KD5RehxToS

Identity pros - find the DC area @WomeninID you work with and encourage them to come meet their industry peers next week. A little bit of time spent could have great results! https://t.co/WRJ8cZdoGn

Many people have asked how #Identiverse continually produces an identity industry conference agenda that sets the bar so high. So from our CFPs to committee review to speakers taking the stage, here’s how it works. @andrewhindle https://t.co/hTVcrnEyDL

Great week planning Identiverse’19 and beyond. Big welcome to the wonderful new members of our community who are going to be helping this year (and hopefully in future years too)! Looking forward to seeing you all in D.C. in June...
