WWPass VP of Strategy Perry Chaffee and Tech Blog Writer podcast host Neil Hughes discuss how companies can get rid of usernames altogether, recapture revenue instead of leaving it on the table with each customers’ “Forgot your password?” abandonment, the current flawed authentication process that companies have in place and more.
VP of Strategy Perry Chaffee examines the new requirements the PCI Security Standards Council released in March for retailers on authentication and encryption practices, and whether they're adequate to help mitigate the increasing threats. Although these requirements aim to make logging in a safer and controlled action, there are plenty of challenges that retailers and customers face, as the landscape of IT security is constantly changing and the “strong access control” measures used today might not be the case soon.
On Tuesday, December 12, WWPass was chosen to exhibit at Mass Innovation Night’s event, sponsored by Relatively Whiskey, along with other innovative companies Spiro, GoPetie and nutty hub. The team presented its PassHub password manager to attendees and taught attendees about how they can leave the frustration of sharing passwords and resets behind with PassHub.
Many big and recognizable brands such as Kmart and eBay were hit with costly and reputation-damaging credit card breaches in 2017. CEO and founder Gene Shablygin discusses how e-commerce companies and retailers still have so much work to do in order to strengthen IT security, and the latest PCI DSS guidelines that cover all of the elements protecting card transactions.
VP of Strategy Perry Chaffee, talks to TechRepublic’s Dan Patterson about the death of the password, the drawbacks of biometric security, and authentication trends in the industry. He points out why it is so important for companies to be proactive and find new approached to security, and not just settle for what meets compliance.
