The Future of Identity: Examining Authentication Practices in Asia-Pacific and Beyond

Since the start of the internet age, we have relied on passwords to prove that we are who we say we are online — and to keep cybercriminals from accessing our personal accounts and data. Unfortunately, the rise of cybercrime and the growing regularity of large-scale data breaches have revealed the vulnerability of passwords and necessitated a quest for more effective authentication methods.

To better understand the latest trends in consumer identity protection, IBM Security recently commissioned a global research study that evaluated consumers’ views on passwords, biometrics and multifactor authentication (MFA).

In this podcast, Trilochan Sehgal, IBM Security’s APAC segment leader for identity and access management, discusses the survey’s results and what these findings mean for both consumers and enterprises in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond.
