This year has seen more debate on the capability and problems of passwords as a method of authentication. The recent third Annual Global Password Security Report from LastPass revealed more issues with the use of password data, particularly around password re-use, and the continued need for passwords in stronger authentication methods.

In this webinar, we will look at the results of the report and discuss trends from 2019 around password use, how to reduce the number of passwords that employees need to remember, and what the analysis of 47,000 users teaches us about user behavior in authentication.

Key takeaways:

  • What 2019’s research, trends and news teaches us on authentication trends and changes
  • How businesses stand up against industry standards on authentication
  • How to spot and troubleshoot password re-use
  • Ways to enable employees to reduce the number of passwords they use and have to remember
