Passwords have long been the bane of user, IT support staff & security professional. Compromised passwords are the leading source of account takeover and system breach, attackers are simply logging in and no longer breaking in! Solutions in the past have always come with caveats, but with the inclusion of Passkeys into most major operating systems and platforms a true light may be at the end of the tunnel. Join this panel to learn about the sorted history of passwords, current and developing trends with passwordless authentication, and what the best practice for Passkeys looks like!

The advent of quantum computers promises to have profound economic impact because they solve lucrative industry problems that are otherwise impossible. The dark side is the consequences to global cybersecurity and the encryption systems fundamental to almost every aspect of our digital lives, including the cyber tools needed to protect them. Although 1970s-era PKI infrastructure has served us well for decades, it provides no assurance against the threat of “harvest now, decrypt later”. The transition to post quantum cryptography standards must be accompanied by more advanced techniques to ensure durable privacy, which is now a national economic security imperative. Fortunately, new redundant hardware and software solutions eliminate the single point of attack and failure in our business critical systems.
