Scare hackers away with the power of MFA!

This week we will  focus on the importance of preventing unauthorised access by enabling Multi-Factor Authentication. Multi-Factor Authentication, or MFA, is a common method used to prevent eerie intruders from accessing sensitive information.

Common authentication methods used today include biometric authentication using either fingerprint or facial recognition and single use codes to authenticate to systems, services, and apps. Multi-Factor Authentication adds an additional layer of security for your devices and ensures only authorised individuals can access sensitive information and accounts.

 

Enabling MFA on your devices will help to keep the cyber-ghouls at bay! If you would like more advice and guidance on how MFA can prevent unauthorised access, please click this link.
