Who is this for?

Normal every day folks will pick up some recommendations on how to better secure their accounts on these services. Engineers will gain first hand insight into how important UX is to implementing an effective security feature. Designers will learn details about how many of the technical implementations work and how that impacts the overall workflow. Tech writers will appreciate the suggestions on how to improve the specific wording and overall tone when communicating important security concepts to end-users. Chances are you'll find value regardless of your background or role at work!

Our co-hosts, Conor Gilsenan and Ray Gonzales, will walk the audience through important screens and workflows that end-users of the service will encounter during on-boarding and daily use of the service. They will talk in depth about the security user experience (UX), highlighting solutions that are working well and recommending some improvements.

Ray Gonzales is a designer with over a decade focusing on delighting users. When he isn't working in Photoshop or talking to end-users, he is probably relaxing with his wife and young son.
