Biometrics Replacing Passwords

Do you use one password for a lot of different accounts? You've been hacked. It isn't a hack in the traditional sense, but your passwords are up for sale on the dark net. Passwords have proven to be poor access controls and now our security depends not on who we are, but what we are. Our unique biometrical markers make up who we are. This session will give you an idea of the future of account security.

  • Learn about password vulnerabilities
  • Learn what biometrics are and how they are currently implemented
  • Review and understand fraud cases from compromised passwords
  • Learn how biometrics will replace passwords in the future

Sustaining a Strong Ethical Culture in Times of Change

Join Earnie Broughton, Senior Advisor at the Ethics and Compliance Initiative (ECI) in Vienna, Virginia.  It can be challenging to build a strong ethics culture under any conditions, but even more so during times of change.  In this interactive session you will learn why change is difficult to navigate and what employees at all levels can do to not just better cope with change, but actually thrive and flourish.  We will consider research findings that show that organizational disruption in particular impacts ethics culture and learn how leaders can leverage a practical “culture change tool kit” with five key components to build and sustain a culture of integrity.
