Surrendering PII for Access
is a recipe for disaster
Repetition Guarantees Failure
The more places our PII. is stored, the less secure it is. Eventually, all of our secrets are revealed.
Trust Assigned to Unwilling Parties
Cell phone companies and email service providers never agreed to protect our identity….Or our privacy.
Application providers grant access based on knowledge-based proof but have no way to demonstrate that the user conducted the authentication.
Liability & Insurance Costs
Over 4,000 known data breaches cost companies over $2 trillion in 2020. 80% of these exposed PII, costing $150 per compromised record. Cyber insurance premiums increased an average of 176% in 2021 and are expected to double again in 2022.
Existing Access and Identity Management solutions assume the user can recall shared secrets
and public identifiers that are stored in the services’ user table.
