Monday, January 11th 2016
Start Time:
2:15 PM
Session Length:
1 Hour
Room:
306 LSC
Description:
We've been hearing for a long time that "passwords are dead." In order to protect ourselves from attack, we’ve had to make passwords longer or more complex. But attackers continue to succeed, and usable alternatives to passwords have been a long time coming. Finally, we have reached the point of common availability and easy use of stronger alternatives for authentication to online systems. Steve Lovaas, IT Security Manager for CSU, will explain the concepts and the technology behind strong authentication technologies, and preview the DUO two-factor authentication system that's being rolled out at CSU.
Goals and Target Audience:
This is a general session that assumes basic familiarity with computers and the internet. Attendees will leave with an increased awareness of the options and issues with multi-factor authentication, multi-step authentication, and the major available technologies on the internet. Attendees will also be shown how to participate in the next phase of implementation of the DUO two-factor authentication system at CSU.

Steve Lovaas and Jason Huitt of ACNS will review the new security features and give recommendations for adoption and deployment.
Goals and Target Audience:
This is targeted at CSU IT administrators, though anyone interested in security benefits in Windows 10 will benefit. Attendees will leave with an increased awareness of the security features available in the new platform, and a roadmap for implementation at CSU.
