What: Tweet chat on biometrics for single sign-on (SSO) with @BIOkeyIntl
Topics: Biometrics as an alternative to passwords and PINs, the economic hardship of data breaches, the effectiveness of national data breach awareness campaigns, industries affected the most by weak SSO systems, non-traditional industries that can benefit from SSO, and more!
We are happy to announce that August’s #biometricchat tweet chat will focus on using biometrics for SSO featuring a guest from Bio-key International.
As more companies look at modern technology solutions to help increase database security and protect sensitive information from being hacked and compromised, many discover that using biometrics helps increase security and lower risk. The professionals at Bio-key will share some of their thoughts on using biometrics for SSO and what distinct advantages it offers over more traditional sign-on methods.
Here are some of the questions that will be asked during the chat:
- Why is biometric technology a more viable alternative to PINs and passwords for single sign-on authentication?
- What industries risk losing the most by not addressing the need to strengthen single sign-on identity management?
- What are some examples of non-traditional industries that can benefit from a biometric single sign-on solution?
- Besides helping to prevent data breaches, what other efficiencies/savings does biometrics for SSO bring?
2011 was recently named “The Year of the Breach” with some researchers reporting that there were at least 558 data breaches costing U.S. businesses more than $6.5 billion. In a day and age where data security strategies receive a lot more scrutiny and attention, more businesses seek flexible, affordable, secure authentication technologies that can reduce the risks and prevent breaches.
This chat is an excellent education opportunity on the values of using biometrics for SSO as you will hear firsthand from one of the leading technology companies in the industry on the merits of biometric technology. Please tune in to tweetchat.com this Thursday at 11am EST to hear from the folks at Bio-key about using biometrics for SSO.
