A New Look at Digital IdentityFrances Zelazny of BioCatch on Replacing Passwords and Usernames
With the recent Equifax breach, a new conversation began around the security of personal information, such as Social Security numbers, birthdates and passwords, and their usefulness in safeguarding private accounts. We know using static identifiers for authentication is outdated and easy to exploit, so where do we go next? Frances Zelazny of BioCatch says it is time for a new look at digital identity.
In an interview at Information Security Media Group's recent 2017 London Fraud and Breach Prevention Summit, Zelazny discusses:
- Why new strategies for identifying users are needed;
- How behavioral biometrics goes beyond static information for identification;
- Why behaviors are safer than other information for identification.
Zelazny is the vice president of marketing with BioCatch. She previously ran an independent consulting firm focused on helping early stage and midsize companies with their business and marketing strategies and was corporate vice president of marketing and strategic operations for L-1 Identity Solutions.
