In this episode, we are joined by Geoff Schomburgk (Regional Vice President, Asia Pacific & Japan – Yubico) as we explore the transition from traditional username and password systems to passwordless experiences. Together, we discuss the frustrations with current security methods, the need for consumer awareness, and the importance of businesses and government setting the standard for security measures. From practicality and usability to the business value of security technologies, Geoff delves into the evolving conversation around cybersecurity and the potential for multifaceted benefits. Tune in for a deep dive into the future of digital identity protection and the impact of modern authentication methods.
