Presenting New Account Security Webinar Series
We’re adding a new authentication thread to Twilio’s vast webinar offerings: a unique series that will focus on account security from the points-of-view of the developer, the enterprise decision maker, and the end-user. And we’re lining up some excellent guest speakers from a variety of industries who believe that offering strong and convenient two-factor authentication and phone verification is required to secure users and protect business data and reputation. We’ll talk about how they went about implementation, what activities they use them for, and how you could benefit from Twilio products, too.
Short and Accessible Webinars.
These free webinars will be around 15 minutes long, followed by a robust Q&A period. Please pre-register so that we can get a read on how many people will be attending and customize the content accordingly. We’ll send out reminders just before the event so that you won’t forget. And since the webinars will be recorded, you’ll always be able to revisit the presentation and share the content with colleagues and peers.
Fighting Fake Account Signups with Twilio and Google
September 14th: 11 am PT / 2 pm ET. 15 minutes + Q&A
For decades, businesses have relied on an email address for identifying user accounts. The problem with email is the ease at which email accounts can be created, even automated by software robots, allowing bad actors to create fraudulent accounts for a variety of criminal activities. Companies like Twitter and Facebook are now using phone numbers, verified by SMS, as a better way to validate that accounts are created by real people. And recent improvements to the Android platform have helped Google reduce security and privacy fears over using SMS. In this 15-minute webinar, Twilio’s Simon Thorpe and Google’s Paul Matthews will look at how applications like BBM, Houseparty, Shopify, and GO-JEK use phone numbers for user accounts instead of emails.

Own Your Authentication with the Twilio Authenticator SDK
Our first webinar event featured B Byrne, Head of Product, Account Security at Twilio, showing just how easy it is for developers to embed high-level security features with the new Twilio Authenticator SDK. That means you no longer have to ask users to download a third-party app like Authy to generate security codes or push-to-approve authentication requests. We also discuss how domain registrar Namecheap is using the Twilio Authenticator SDK to provide simple and secure 2FA for TOTP (time-based one-time passcodes) and push.
