During this editorial webcast, experts from Redmond magazine will present several modern tactics to help your organization ensure that any self-service capabilities it extends have the highest degree of security.
Extending self-service tasks to users conveys a variety of benefits—everything from reducing the burden on the help desk for repetitive tasks like password resets to empowering users to feel as if they have more control over their day-to-day tasks.
However, extending self-service like this can also introduce a new level of risk.
When letting users reset their own passwords or recover encryption keys, there is the risk of handing over the keys to the kingdom. When extending self-service capabilities to sensitive functions like password resets, it is critical that users are verified as carefully as possible with multi-factor authentication, sending messages to an associated mobile number, sending one-time recovery keys or even a rolling list of security questions.
