Working From Anywhere

Securing The Future of Working-From-Anywhere

Transforming employee experiences with passwordless authentication


18:00 - 19:30 BST

Wednesday 29 September 2021
Virtual Event - Taking Place on Zoom

In today’s uncertain climate, remote working has pushed security and risk mitigation to the top of CIO agendas. But security needs to change: the shift from the traditional office working environment and a mass adoption of cloud services requires security models to be flexible, scalable, and wherever possible, passwordless.

With 81% of breaches across businesses happening as a result of poor passwords or other identity-related issues, for many organisations the first step is to address workforce identity access management (WIAM) to enable passwordless and zero trust. With a reduced password footprint, businesses see improved workforce productivity, better user experience, greater IT agility and most importantly, a secure working environment fit for today’s needs.

Join IT and security leaders to explore how passwordless could be the next step in your journey to securing the future of working-from-anywhere, and to understand how to use it to drive IT agility and enable happier, more productive employee experiences.
