PixelPin Takes on InfoSecurity 2019


PixelPin hit the westside of London for InfoSecurity 2019, and what a time it was! This year’s conference was one of the busiest, with over 15,000 security professionals navigating the floor space over three days. From the established corporations to the debuting start-ups, Olympia London lit up with creativity and passion for the future of the technology sector; however, the brightest spot for us, was our very own booth, Q140, in the UK Cyber Security Innovation Zone. This year marked PixelPin’s second turn exhibiting, and, just as the previous year, it was a humbling, enthralling, and educational experience. Our team gathered around over the course of the program, putting our best foot forward to our cyber-peers.WhatsApp Image 2019-06-04 at 9.53.50 AM

An exciting highlight for PixelPin this year, came in the form of our presentation, Death of the Password: Picture Authentication, given by Georgia Steele-Matthews and Kelsey McGrath (Chief Product Officer and Company Operations Manager, respectively). While the twenty-five-minute talk covered a wide range of topics, the focus remained on understanding the "why" questions that exist behind PixelPin’s product. Why can we remember pictures better than text? Why shouldn’t I invest in other authentication methods? Why are pictures better for branding and accessibility? By addressing the underlying decisions and thought processes behind picture authentication, the presentation presented the importance of building technology tangentially with biological instinct and progressions. If you were not fortunate enough to see the talk on the Technology Showcase, don’t despair; below is the full presentation! For all their effort and hard work, we would like to wish a hearty well-done to Georgia and Kelsey! And look out for future blog posts, where we will dive deeper into these principles.

Another year passes, and with InfoSecurity 2019 complete we turn our attention to ensuring that all our future events are as successful. Check back to find where PixelPin will be next, or sign-up for our monthly newsletter to get updated emailed to you!
