Topic: What Every CISO, Product Strategist, or Consumer Needs to Know About Biometric Recognition for MFA

If you are a CISO with compliance concerns, or a Product Strategist creating a biometric recognition roadmap, what are your best options? If you are a consumer, and get pulled over, what do you do?

In this interactive talk, we will cover the following questions and topics:

  • What’s more secure, password or biometrics?
  • What’s more accurate, face or iris?
  • Is the US legal system up to the challenge? Which five states are considering bills to restrict biometric use?
  • What is happening in the European Union? How will PSD2 and GDPR drive privacy and security requirements? The PSD2 has specific requirements for biometric recognition for multi-factor authentication, or what it terms, “Strong Customer Authentication (SCA).”
  • ISO/IEC updates.
  • NIST updates including anti-spoofing requirements.
  • What’s the deal with FIDO?
