Description

In the summer of 2016, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published new draft guidelines that proposed sweeping changes to traditional security models and best practices. Finalized in the summer of 2017, the new NIST guidelines upended several historical approaches to authentication. Security questions are no longer considered secure. Mandatory periodic password changes can weaken security. Special characters can make passwords harder for users to remember and easier for hackers to guess. Is the three-attempt lockout policy even necessary? Regulators defer to NIST standards. Therefore, financial institutions must prepare for shifts in authentication and security compliance by fundamentally recalibrating the balance between digital security and user experience.

Learning Objectives

  • New NIST Digital Identity Guidelines – what to know and why you should care
  • Why “security” (challenge) questions aren’t secure
  • Why mandatory periodic password changes make passwords less secure
  • Why three-attempt account lockouts are unnecessary, frustrate users, and discourage account vigilance
  • How to revise password parameters for stronger security and happier end-users
  • How to implement two-factor authentication (2FA) for maximum security and usability
  • Browser boot-camp: understanding strengths and vulnerabilities among popular web browsers
  • Securing your digital channels by taking cues from BigTech
