The Pesky Password Problem: Policies That Help You Gain the Upper Hand on the Bad Guys
Tuesday, November, 10th, 2020
What really makes a “strong” password? And why are your end-users tortured with them in the first place? How do hackers crack your passwords with ease? And what can/should you do about your authentication methods?
For decades, end-users have borne the brunt of the password tyranny, a result of the IT industries’ inability to engineer secure systems. Password complexity, length, and rotation requirements are the bane of your end-user experience and literally the cause of thousands of data breaches. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

In this webinar you’ll learn:
o Why passwords are so easy to hack and how the bad guys do it
o How to craft a secure, risk-focus password security policy
o The truth about password managers and multi-factor authentication and how they impact your risk
o How to empower your end users to become your best last line of defense
