Cloud computing offers organisations the ability to develop new technologies in less time, with a lower barrier to entry. As security leaders in government and regulated non-government enterprises migrate to public, private or hybrid cloud, they require strong security to prevent data breaches, protect sensitive...
Since the publication of the PSD2 directive, biometrics has played a key role to help financial services organizations carry out transactions with the highest level of security and a frictionless customer experience.
Biometrics allows compliance with this regulation while leaving behind other authentication methods...
Cybercrimes, and the reputational and financial damage to businesses that suffer from them, rise every year. It's estimated that the cost of breaches, identity theft, and other cybercrimes will double, from $3 trillion in 2015 to $6 trillion in 2021. Advanced authentication prevents 70% of account fraud, meaning that...
The Cryptographer's Panel, which sees five cryptography experts analyze and debate top trends, remains a highlight of the annual RSA conference. For 2020, the panel focused on such topics as facial recognition, election integrity and the never-ending crypto wars, while giving shout-outs to bitcoin and blockchain.
Improvements in behavioral biometrics and analytics are changing the way many financial services firms approach authentication. And more companies also are taking a "zero trust" approach to improve identity and access management, according to two security experts interviewed at RSA 2020.
The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report offers an analysis of the missteps that led to problems with the app used in this week's Democratic presidential caucuses in Iowa. Also featured: growing privacy concerns about facial recognition and business continuity tips for dealing with the coronavirus.
The European Union appears to be moving toward dropping a temporary ban on the use of facial recognition technology in public places, according to news reports. Some technology experts had argued that a temporary ban would be impractical and ineffective in preventing abuse.
The latest edition of the ISMG Security Report discusses countering the threat of nation-state cyberattacks in 2020. Also featured: an update on France's experiment with facial recognition technology and sorting out what "zero trust" really means.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology has released three biometric datasets to help organizations research new types of secure digital identification systems and authentication processes. NIST also released a study on facial recognition technology that raises some concerns.
To ensure privacy is protected, governments need to make sure standards and regulations keep pace with the latest technology developments, including facial recognition and other forms of artificial intelligence, says Steven Feldstein, an associate professor at Boise State University.
The FBI is warning banks, businesses and other organizations that cybercriminals are using social engineering and other technical techniques to circumvent multifactor authentication security protections.
