What is the FIDO Alliance? Good question! The answer is that it is an organization that provides open and free authentication standards to assist in reducing our dependence on passwords and instead use UAF, U2F and FIDO2. In fact, if you think about it, the vast majority of data hacks and breaches are due to a sloppy password somewhere – so these folks really are plugging a wide-open patch. Good luck to the organizers with their event in California in November 2020 when I hope COVID-19 will be a distant memory.

Relying on passwords is already out of date. Modern authentication standards and systems have emerged to provide more efficient ways for organizations to provide strong security and better interactions with their brands.
Authenticate is considered as the first conference dedicated to the who, what, why, and how of user authentication – with a focus on the FIDO standards-based approach. Hosted by FIDO Alliance, Authenticate is the platform for security strategists, CISOs, enterprise architects, and product and business leaders to get all of the education, tools, and best practices to roll out modern authentication across the web, enterprise, and government applications.
After years of increasingly severe data breaches and user login frustration, now is the time to embrace a new way to authenticate. Come away with the tools to move past passwords by joining this years’ Authenticate 2020.
