Frightening Drive towards Catastrophe
Key takeaways from Gartner IAM summit 2022
I owe this Security Boulevard report to John J. McLaughlin’s “Enterprise IT News and Events newsletter” — https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/storage-security-cxo-events-technology-hr-careers-hp-dell-mclaughlin
It reads, as a key takeaway, “Passwordless MFA is a key topic that is top of mind for all organizations. No shocker here, given the increased attacks and security risks from using passwords even as a first factor. Organizations need to develop a roadmap to move toward a fully passwordless multi-factor authentication (MFA) approach balancing user experience and security.”
Frightening is that these security-destructive ‘passwordless’ solutions are not touted by a small number of non-professionals but promoted by not a few ‘security professionals’ and big IT players that dominate the global tech media.
Perplexing is that most of those people are playing a positive role in other aspects of cybersecurity.
Well, how those people could have got trapped in such a quagmire in the sphere of digital identity is analysed in this post — “Cognitive Pitfall over Password Removal” https://www.linkedin.com/posts/hitoshikokumai_passwordless-vs-mfa-whats-the-difference-activity-6958297761570058240-FW27
