The Evolution of Credentials and Access Control and Its Use in the IT, OT, and Physical Security Environment

Technology has created an evolution of credentials, as well as the oncoming use in IT, OT and the physical security platform. Participating in this webinar will help you understand the role of multi-factor authentication, biometrics, block chain and machine learning. These technologies play a key role in authentication. You also will learn that access management has always been a rudimentary process; and that access granted or denied is a one-dimensional concept.
Key points of physical security access control:

  1. Card-based access
  2. Two-part authentication
  3. Three-part with biometric
  4. Built to define entry not identity
