FIDO Alliance Offers 300 Free FIDO Security Keys to Protect Koreans Working at Home

By Joon Hyuk Lee, APAC Market Development Director, FIDO Alliance

The coronavirus outbreak is not only raising public health concerns, but also exposing many office employees who are forced to work at home to greater cybersecurity risk, especially online phishing attacks which is known to be the origin of more than 80% of cyber attacks.

In order to help Koreans to stay protected from such online phishing attacks, the FIDO Alliance Korea Working Group just launched the FIDO Security Key Support Campaign. Sponsored by eWBM, AirCuve (Yubico Partner) and Octatco, the FIDO Security Key Support Campaign will provide 300 FIDO physical security keys to Koreans who are working remotely where their networks and devices are less protected.

Similar to our 2020 FIDO Hackathon – Goodbye Password Challenge, we will continue to develop and provide social contribution programs that can educate the public about FIDO protocols while leaving positive social impacts.”

The application for campaign ends on April 17th, 2020.  For those who wish to receive a free FIDO security key, the online application site can be found by clicking the campaign banner on the sponsoring member’s website.
