Topic:             Security for the People: End-User Authentication Security on the Internet
Presenter:     Mark Stanislav, CISSP,  Duo Security

Abstract:  Despite the continued success by attackers to brute-force accounts, phish credentials, and otherwise impact the online security of consumers, a large portion of the sites and services consumers utilize still don’t take authentication security seriously enough. This presentation will review recent research into the state of end-user-facing authentication security as it relates to strong authentication, transport security, breach history, security transparency, and complementary browser security features. Through analysis of the ways organizations protect consumer authentication and deploy relevant browser security features, we can gain insight into which sites and services are most focused on ensuring consumers have the best chance of successfully defending against attackers.
