October 4, 2023
10:00 am - 10:45 am

Most cyberattacks, including ransomware, are caused by stolen credentials through phishing and simple human error. These breaches ultimately have costly consequences for both companies and customers.

There is urgency to align to the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, as announced in President Biden’s Executive Order 14028 for stronger cybersecurity best practices using phishing-resistant multi-factor authentication (MFA) as part of your Zero Trust strategy. As a retail and hospitality organization, many are asking “How do I get started?”

Join T-Mobile and Yubico to learn how this global media and retail innovator is championing modern cybersecurity practices and moving to hardware-backed phishing-resistant FIDO2 passwordless authentication to protect customer data and critical infrastructure. In doing so, they are creating positive long-lasting impacts on their customers and business while bolstering their mission to connect customers to the world securely.

Attendees will learn:

  • T-Mobile’s journey from legacy multi-factor solutions to implementing phishing-resistant MFA using modern passwordless FIDO2 protocols across retail and franchise stores, corporate environment, and call centers for employees, contractors, and partners
  • How to successfully achieve a phased data-driven approach for global MFA deployment by planning, prioritizing, executing, and navigating challenges
  • Lessons learned from an online and brick and mortar retailer that can apply to any organization
