Study Hall:  Phishing-Resistant Multi-Factor Authentication

Thales TCT Product Session: Identity & Access Management

Time: 3:50 PM – 4:20 PM


Jim Dickens, Sr. Product Manager, Identity & Access Management & High Speed Encryption, Thales TCT

Joel Goldman, BD & Sales Engineer, Identity & Access Management, Thales TCT

Session Description:

Without secure, enterprise-managed identity systems, adversaries can take over user accounts and gain a foothold in an agency to steal data or launch attacks. The Federal Zero Trust Strategy prioritizes defense against sophisticated phishing and directs agencies to consolidate identity systems so that protections and monitoring can be consistently applied. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) plays a critical part in the Government’s strategy.

Attend this session to learn how to meet U.S. Government requirements for phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA). The speakers will:

  • Breakdown phishing-resistant MFA
  • Weigh the pros and cons of phishing-resistant MFA solutions
  • Review what current MFA methods are being deprecated
  • Discuss how to comply with policy and mandates including EO 14028, Zero Trust, NIST 800-63, and more
