Digital Services Group: modernizing authentication

In today’s environment of both massive cyber breaches and individual identity hacks, authentication must modernize to ensure the security of applications, data, and user information, both on the web and on mobile devices.  Usernames and passwords are yesterday’s news (and critically insecure). The world of digital services is evolving at an incredible pace and the solutions being developed to help verify an individual’s authenticity/ID are evolving at a similar pace, yet many applications continue to rely on passwords alone. Biometrics are not a ‘silver bullet’ that can solve the world’s online authentication issues, but they can be combined to create an accurate and reliable ‘factor’ in a multi-factor authentication approach.
