WHITE PAPER HIGHLIGHTS IMPORTANCE OF SECURE BIOMETRIC AUTHENTICATION IN THE CLOUD

No technology or solution can completely eliminate the risk of a cyberattack, but adoption of biometric-enabled, multifactor authentication is one of the most impactful steps that can meaningfully reduce a company’s cyber risk. Given the emerging array of new requirements for authentication in sectors such as health, financial services and government, organizations can prepare for cloud compliance by moving to implement MFA now. A new White Paper, produced in collaboration between Microsoft and The Chertoff Group, seeks to do the following:

  1. Explore why authentication is so important
  2. Discuss barriers to the implementation and uptake of strong authentication solutions
  3. Detail the ways in which biometrics and other next-generation authentication technologies are addressing these barriers
  4. Lay out key security and privacy risks associated with biometrics, as well as discuss how governments and compliance organizations are framing policies around authentication and biometrics
  5. Detail how the right standards and architecture can ensure that biometrics are deployed in a way that addresses important regulatory and compliance concerns
