Troy Hunt recently testified before the US Congress about Data Breaches. The focus was how data breaches affect knowledge based authentication. Identity verification in a post breach world is more challenging than ever.
His testimony is available on his blog. It is worth a read – I’ll wait here until you return.
You can watch the hearing on YouTube. (1.5 hours)
Much of his talk comes from his experience running a website tracking data breaches. If you have not already checked your information in Have I Been Pwned take a look. You can have it notify you if your account has been in a data breach.
I saw this video of a keynote speech given at the O`Reilly Security Conference in October 2016. Cory Doctorow gives a compelling talk about the thorny issues surrounding DRM and security research, privacy violations, and private property abuses.
