Why nominated: In an era when login credentials often include Admin for a user name and Password1234, it’s good to know there are security stewards like Stina Ehrensvärd who continue to make password security a daily mission.

Profile: The last 12 months saw two of Ehrensvärd’s most important projects come to fruition. Her work to bring secure, passwordless login capability to the world through her company’s work with the open standards community, namely the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) came to pass in April 2018 when the FIDO Alliance released FIDO2, a new open authentication standard for simple, secure account login and data protection without the need for passwords.
