Successful Security Practices: Counting Failed Login Attempts
Wed., Sept. 3, 2014 at Noon ET
Looking to change your security practices by counting failed login attempts and locking accounts after the agreed-upon threshold has been reached? Interested in finding out how two institutions plan to do that? While monitoring unusual login activity is considered good security practice, counting failed logins is also part of the strategy for addressing the requirements of InCommon Bronze and Silver Identity Assurance Profiles.
Join us for an informal one-hour webinar presentation to hear how two campuses are approaching this issue and what they have under development.
Moderator: Jacob Farmer, University of Indiana
