The importance placed on security can’t be stressed enough. However, many people and organizations are becoming more and more frustrated with intrusions due to password issues. So, what are we to do?
Biometric security has increased over the past few years and we are marching faster towards a passwordless world. But, what can we expect, and how can we identify bot interaction versus human interaction as potential threats to our applications and networks?
In this “Back @ IT” episode, I’m joined by Justin Macorin, Cybersecurity and Behavioral Biometrics expert with Pointmount Inc. We’ll chat about what behavioral biometrics is, new security legislation, passwordless implications, activity tracking, and more.
01:48: Justin outlines his background and what led him to the cybersecurity work and specifically to behavioral biometrics.
03:39: What is behavioral biometrics? Justin lays out the answer as the way we interact with hardware and physical devices.
05:10: How different entities are interacting with computers through artificial intelligence and bots.
08:51: The rise of data privacy, and now biometric legislation, has placed greater importance on security. This puts an onus on organizations to have a security governance model in place.
11:10: The difference between buzzwords and practical application of systems and security have real-world implications.
13:03: Security is a continual process that should be reviewed, updated, and adapted to stay on opt of threats and attack factors.
14:46: What does the future look like if we all go to a passwordless ecosystem?
17:20: The impact a cookieless world will have on security, marketing, and tracking.
20:44: How we identify bots versus humans that interact with devices or applications. Does this change our approach to security?
