Businesses urged to adopt biometrics by UK tech association board member

A U.K. cybersecurity intelligence report has prompted calls from the tech industry to obligate businesses to provide stronger authentication such as facial recognition.

The U.K.'s National Cyber Security Centre revealed that it quashed 177,000 malicious phishing attacks and 600 cyberattacks against businesses in the last 12 months. The agency said in its annual report that two passwords had caused the hacking of over 500,000 accounts.

"Organizations must have an obligation to protect their customers and provide the safest methods of authentication," techUK board member Jason Tooley said, adding that biometrics are the ideal solution to error-prone passwords.

Tooley said the findings emphasized the need for more digital literacy and that passwords were the "weakest link."

"True" two-factor security could be achieved only through facial or fingerprint security, he added.

Trade association techUK counts Google LLC, Facebook Inc., Apple Inc. and Inc. among its 800 members.
