Panel: The Rise of Phishing-Resistant MFA: How We Got Here and How to Move Forward
The Federal Government has spent a long time developing efficient, strong security practices to verify and authenticate identities—and for good reason. We’ve seen how incompatible authentication mechanisms hinder interagency communication and collaboration, as well as how weak authentication mechanisms leave the Federal Government vulnerable to exploits.
Over the years, a variety of policies and memos—as well as high-profile cybersecurity attacks—have shaped what exactly strong identity verification and authentication means for the Federal Government, leading us to today’s “phishing-resistant MFA” defined and mandated by the OMB defined as part of its Zero Trust memo.
During this webinar, experts on Federal identity will discuss:
- The history of identity verification and authentication in the Federal Government
- The key security use cases authentication technology needs to support today
- Tips for using PIV / CAC cards and other form factors to implement phishing-resistant MFA across your entire agency (without ripping and replacing)
