Happy Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
Throughout the month, we’re partnering with Sophos to provide bitesize cybersecurity guidance based on the event’s weekly themes.
Week 1 Focus: Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)
What is MFA?
MFA is a security measure that requires two or more proofs of identity, beyond just a password, to grant you access into accounts.
Types of MFA Security Checks include:
- one-time passcode
- security key
- facial recognition
Why should you Enable MFA?
It will ensure access to your applications (and the precious data contained within them) is more secure and not prone to accidental or deliberate attempts to breach them.
This article details a real-life example of how cyber criminals accessed an organization’s network security console and turned everything off, something MFA could have prevented!
The toolkit is packed with useful resources to help you optimize your protection and stay one step ahead of the criminals. We hope you find these resources both informative and useful!
