Online security measures are a thing that most people are aware of in today’s day and age, but what seems to truly vary is the way in which different generations seem to utilize this knowledge. Different generations in the workforce seem to have different habits and trends when it comes to online security. A recent survey from a password manager company of over 1,000 Americans has revealed exactly what those trends are.
While it is always important to take preventive measures to ensure that your employees are being proactive in protecting their personal and business related information, it is not only small businesses that are affected by cyber-attacks. Major corporations across the globe are constantly needing to step up their security measures to protect their customer’s information.
With the constant threat of cyber security attacks constantly looming around us, many more businesses are turning to advanced authentication technologies to add extra security to their overall systems. This extra level of security adds a layer of trust among customers and business partners alike. With this in mind, it makes sense that over 57% of companies recently surveyed have stated that they have begun using biometrics for authentication to protect their information
Identity management in our growing world of IoT that includes home security, automotive, banking, healthcare, automotive, and retial industries is becoming more complex and a dangerouse landscape. Nuclear plants, electrical grids, traffic signalization systems, mass transportation grids, as well as all the previouosly mentioned industries, all share at least the common trait of being hacked: The breakdown of one consistment element, a human. Voice biometrics offers the cleanest, least obtrusive or cumbersome, most secure solution. It is more secure than facial recognition, fingerprint, retina scans, gait analysis, etc. All of those require specialized, expensive, and at times difficult to deploy hardware for them to be 100% effective.
Fortr3ss is leading the revolution in providing a suite of products for identity and password management including Fortr3ssApp, Fortr3ssConnect (API), Fortr3ssAD (Active Directory), and soon Fortr3ssVPN, Fortr3ssPay, Fortr3ssLock, and Fortr3ssPOS for the consumer, banking, healthcare, retail, hospitality industries.

We all know that identity theft can occur at many different levels, but how long after our information is stolen is it used? The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) did some research into what happens to stolen identity information that is made public, and the results of their investigation give us some better insight.
In the 21st century, we have all heard of identity theft and the consequences of having our private information stolen. Some of us may have even been a victim of the act ourselves.
Identity theft is the deliberate use of someone else's identity, usually as a method to gain a financial advantage or obtain credit. While this definition may seem more broad, many people are not aware of what the act entails, and just how high the cost of identity theft really is.
While it is important to know the risks of reusing weak passwords across multiple accounts, it is equally crucial to be able to understand just how hackers are able to steal this information. By understanding the process, you can take preventative measures to ensure that your information and even your corporate networks are never compromised at the fault of poor password management.
