Keynote Presentation: Innovations behind FIDO – the past, the present, the future

Oct 18, 2021


Session Details

FIDO inventions and innovations play a critical role in protecting our modern digital world—not only today, but in the future as well. In 2025, it is expected that there will be more than 75 billion connected devices, which means that there will be more than 75 billion opportunities for phishing scams, man-in-the-middle attacks, and other malicious attempts to steal credentials and compromise internet users and organizations.

However, as the number of cyber security breaches rise, organizations that have implemented FIDO-based authentication have seen a sharp decrease in successful attacks with proven cost and productivity savings.

In this keynote, Yubico’s founder and CEO will share some never told personal and professional stories on how and why the first FIDO security key was invented, and the strategy of winning over the leading platforms and browsers to adopt and scale her vision to billions of users and devices. The talk will also cover the most common cyber security attacks; where and how FIDO technologies provide direct or indirect protection; and why and how the standards are evolving beyond authentication and into payments, IoT devices, and privacy preserving identities.
