Decentralized digital identity, advanced biometrics, and authentication to FIDO2 standards are a few of the dominant trends in Identity and Access Management today.

But getting started on the journey to frictionless and strong user authentication doesn't need to go through the path of fear, uncertainty, and doubt.

In this webinar Forrester analyst Sean Ryan will clarify the emerging trends shaping the Identity and Access Management (IAM) industry. He will discuss key drivers behind the surge of interest in IAM and factors organizations across the globe should consider to not just cope, but thrive amid the latest security threats and user preferences.

1Kosmos chief strategy officer Mike Engle will present how industry leaders in banking, telecom, eCommerce, education, healthcare and other industries are rapidly shifting from password-based to identity-first authentication, securing critical systems and data from hackers while putting users in control of their personal information.

Jefferies' senior vice president (IAM) Andrew Ehrlich will talk about industry challenges with passwords, his view on a better way to authenticate, and how an organization can implement passwordless technologies without imposing draconian controls on users.

Specific topics that will be covered:

  • MFA, FIDO2, NIST 800-63-3 and biometrics
  • Zero trust authentication and access management
  • Solving data breach from credential theft
