Block Hacks with Multifactor AuthenticationOctober 17, 2019
Multifactor authentication, or MFA, provides another layer of defense against cyber criminals. What does it entail? We explore here.
The password, although the most common security measure available, is a lot of times the most vulnerable to a hack. Turning on something called multifactor authentication, or MFA, will double your online protection, and can be rolled out quickly and inexpensively. What exactly does MFA entail? Check out our whitepaper, OWN IT, SECURE IT, PROTECT IT: 2019 Cyber Update for the details. Here’s a sneak peek.
Typical examples of MFA are:
- Entering a pin
- Scanning a fingerprint
- Answering a security question. Make these hard to crack by modifying the spelling of the street you grew up on, for example, or make up something entirely. Just make sure you have a way of remembering your answers!
