re: For Better Security, Keep Password Policies Simple
At one of the events I recently attended someone made a good point: with so many data breaches happening right now, the whole idea of passwords and usernames and challenge questions as authentication doesn't seem to be working. Enterprises have been trying for a long time to educate customers on password best practices, but it isn't taking. Maybe biometric authentication or something else is the answer.

Absolutely. Employees already have enough on their plates with their daily responsibilities - having to remember 12 passwords on top of that is a hassle. Single sign-on is more secure and easier to use for everyone.

A lot of the investment in new analytics tools right now is going towards security, so I think that enterprises are already thinking along those lines. Have to know your customers to protect them.

This shows how the consumerization trend also plays a role in security strategies -- companies have to recognize human behavior and employees' needs for simplicity and convenience.
