Cybersecurity Advisory: With the continual increase in cybersecurity breaches, it’s better to be safe than sorry and keep hackers away with a two-factor authentication (2FA) or multi-factor authentication (MFA).
A 2FA or MFA is a quick and easy way to add an additional layer of security to your business. They help address the vulnerabilities of a standard password-only approach, so you can keep your information out of the wrong hands!
2FA’s are increasingly being used to protect people’s credentials from hackers who have either stolen a password database or used phishing campaigns to obtain passwords.
With more and more massive data breaches of very popular companies recorded each month, 2FA authentication is quickly becoming standard procedure.
The Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) cybersecurity advisory State of Cybersecurity Among Small Businesses in North America says the annual loss to an SMB, as a result of a ransomware attack, is now $80K, on average. And the cost to the global economy for 2019 will hit more than $2 trillion.
At WW Works, we constantly strive to keep our foundation solid as new security threats emerge. We highly recommend 2FA be included within your company policies.
