The FIDO Alliance announced the agenda and speaker lineup for its free Virtual Authenticate Summit: APAC Innovation, the quarterly series of virtual seminars that delve into the FIDO approach to modern user authentication. This three-day event, being held December 8-10, 2021, features expert speakers from around the globe, with regionally specific tracks focused on strong authentication trends in China, India, the ASEAN region, Korea, Japan and Taiwan.
“Asia has long been a hub of innovation for FIDO Authentication – with some of the earliest and most noteworthy implementations having taken place throughout the region,” said Andrew Shikiar, executive director and CMO of the FIDO Alliance. “We are pleased to build upon FIDO’s Authenticate Virtual Summit series to allow local participants to gain insights into the latest trends and technologies from FIDO Alliance and its global stakeholders.”
Fraud and identity theft continues to grow throughout APAC as a result of lingering reliance on weak authentication methods such as passwords, as witnessed by the recent FIDO Alliance Online Authentication Barometer survey. The survey shows that while security is a priority with 84% of respondents having taken steps they believe will better protect their accounts from compromise, 43% did so by strengthening their passwords.
This Virtual Summit will give attendees the necessary tools to start their companies on a journey towards a passwordless future – as regional stalwarts such as NTT DOCOMO, Samsung, LINE and many more have done already.
Participants will also gain insights from subject matter experts in identity and authentication, with case studies including:
- Asia Pacific — Electronic Transactions Development Agency (ETDA), Malaysian Ministry of Finance, SecureMetric
- China — FIME, Lenovo
- India — Ensurity, RBL Bank, Reserve Bank of India
- Japan — AXELL, Digital Agency of Japan Government, Josai University, OpenID Foundation Japan, NTT DOCOMO, Rakuten, Yahoo! Japan
- Korea — AWS/AirCuve, LINE, SK Telecom/Octaco, TrustKey, Telecommunications Technology Association of Korea
- Taiwan — AuthenTrend/NEC, FIME, Financial Supervisory Commission, PUFsecurity
Authenticate Virtual Summit: APAC Innovation is free to attend for anyone interested in learning more about and/or deploying FIDO Authentication. Most sessions will also be available on-demand after they air, and translated subtitles for global contents will be available in Chinese, Japanese or Korean (as well as for the event platform). Attendees and sponsors will also have the ability to engage and network, as well as visit sponsor booths via the virtual platform.
