European Policy Forum: The Future of Authentication

March 6, 2017 @ 12:15 pm 6:00 pm EST

Between PSD2 requirements for Strong Customer Authentication, the eIDAS initiative, and the continued epidemic of password-centric cyber-attacks, the need for simpler, stronger authentication technology in Europe has never been stronger.

Join the FIDO Alliance at the “Future of Authentication Forum” in Brussels on Monday, March 6 to learn more about how next-generation authentication technology, powered by FIDO standards, is making it easier than ever to deliver a customer authentication solution that is not only unphishable, but also easy to use.

The event will feature a variety of speakers from government and industry, and explore how the regulatory landscape around authentication in industries like financial services and eID is evolving to reflect changes in the authentication marketplace.

Online registrations are no longer being accepted for this event. On-site registration will be available from 12:15-16:00 on Monday, March 6. Photo identification will be required.
