Today you can easily secure your Dropbox, GitHub, Office365 or Google account with a Multi-factor Authentication. Authenticating users with a Multi-factor Authentication – as opposed to potentially weak passwords – is a much stronger method of keeping accounts secure, and it’s now easier than ever to set up and distribute.
Ignorance of cyber crime
It’s no secret that hacks and malicious security breaches are on the rise. The number of high-profile reports this year alone has been truly shocking, and industry experts are predicting things can only get much worse. However, a lot of people seem to view cyber hacking crises as “refrigerator noise” – ever present yet often ignored.
Don’t do anything!
Users across the world seem to have the mentality of: if I ignore it, it doesn’t exist, it will not happen me, I don’t have anything valuable on my account that anyone would like to hack!. That’s why stories like the attacks on Sony, US Postal Service, JP Morgan, and Ashley Madison (to name just a few) appear to come and go, when in fact the real story should be: how do we make sure nothing like this happens again?
User name and Password is the simple and cheap way to build your website, but what happen with all the content you have uploaded on web sites like Ashley Madison when they get hacked!
Hello Multi-factor Authentication!
It’s time to say Hello to Multi-factor Authentication; it’s time for all service providers themselves need to start enforcing stricter security protocols. To introduce Multi-factor Authentication isn’t exactly going to happen overnight, but it really needs to come about sooner rather than later. Authenticating users with a Multi-factor Authentication – as opposed to potentially weak passwords – is a much stronger method of keeping accounts secure, and it’s now easier than ever to set up and distribute.
