The pulse on the ground we are getting from our clients is MFA and passwordless. Biometrics definitely however i dont think the universal adoption in 12 months is realistic due to hardware and other related issues.

Any password authentication works on fundamentally checking - 'Who I am' or 'What I know' or 'What I have'. A good combo of two out of above three is a good combo. Technologies will change in this area every one year as perps get more sophisticated but this combo should work
IT Director in Services (non-Government), 11 - 50 employees
Biometrics and Multi-factor authentication
Director of IT in Manufacturing, 5,001 - 10,000 employees
password with 
combination of lowercase, uppercase, numbers and special characters

The two password security options that I believe will become more widely utilized in the coming year are Multi-Factor Authentication and Biometrics.

I think biometrics will become more important especially as they become more reliable

The other aspect will be context aware security - i.e. where is the user geolocated, on what device, on what connection method, at what time of day, and an element of AI tracking users usual activities and actions and personal habits as they progress through to a service to detect anomalies and also grade security measures based on the activity - just a simple check may just be a biometric, accessing transactions to change or amend will require further authentication.

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.
