Avoiding Multi-Factor Authentication Pitfalls
Last year, the impacts of the WannaCry, NotPetya, and Equifax cyber attacks were closely followed by the stunning disclosure of the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities, increasing the sense of urgency around cybersecurity and driving spending higher than ever before.
Despite increased spending on security products and services, the number of data breaches continues to rise. Funding doesn’t guarantee successful security. Organizations often waste valuable resources on practices that fail to protect against evolving threats, and continue to prop up password security.
Join us to learn:
- Why the latest version of the CIS Controls has removed all references to passwords
- How multi-factor authentication (MFA) can make access hard for hackers, but easy for users
- The advantage of risk-based authentication mechanisms
- Best practices for avoiding MFA implementation pitfalls
