Cyber Talk Radio: Authentication and Identity Security

Authentication & Identity Security plus BeyondCorp overview - Week 7 of Cyber Talk Radio

Our guest this week was Paul Querna, CTO at ScaleFT.

Show Summary

This past Saturday, November 5th, the seventh episode of Cyber Talk Radio hit the airwaves on 1200 WOAI and iHeartRadio streaming.

Paul joined us in studio on a visit from San Francisco to discuss authentication and identity in a modern world where secure perimeters are gone. In the first half of the show, we go over triple the A’s (authentication, access control and audits), identity with usernames and passwords.The conversation focused on one of the key ways that security breaches happen - when an attacker gets your credentials and uses them the wrong way. There are three parts to controlling access to your accounts:

  1. Who you are (username and password)
  2. Authorization on what you are allowed to access
  3. How you distribute access/authorization.

In the second half of the show, we discuss the future of how you should secure your business with identifying users and customizing access to specific apps. Also, Paul gives best practices on what to look for when keeping your business safe and secure.

This is an exciting time where people and businesses are changing the way authentication security works and how to make it better!
