Round table discussion

Passwords – let’s make them all the same and never change them!


Yes – you read it right. That is what our customers want, so let’s give it to them or should we? Let’s have a robust roundtable discussion on passwords, 2FA and how we need to handle this brave new world where hackers typically know your clients passwords before you do … all because the clients want ease of use. Come prepared with how you’ve solved this problem as well as the problems you have and let’s all figure out how to build solutions that let them have their cake and eat it too!
