Identity Management Architect & Zero Trust Coordinator
MIT Lincoln Laboratory
Session Abstract: Balancing security and usability is crucial, yet 3 out of 5 security executives say complicated authentication processes have stopped them from doing their job. For organizations that have a heterogeneous IT ecosystem and varying internal requirements, the path to passwordless isn’t always clear. As a result, security executives are often forced to take a fragmented approach to authentication, which can create significant user and administrative friction, high costs, and most importantly—gaps and inconsistencies that can be exploited by bad actors.
In this session, learn how to avoid these pitfalls with modern approaches that can meet you where you are today—regardless of your underlying IT complexity, and find out how organizations like MIT Lincoln Laboratory are moving away from legacy approaches to authentication and toward the foundations of a Zero Trust strategy and passwordless future.
