About this talk

Unraveling the risk and cost of legacy MFA Modern cyber threats are increasing in scale so ensuring strong security for access to enterprise applications and services is a critical need across all industries. Also highlighted by many recent high profile attacks and the subsequent evolving regulatory landscape toward phishing-resistant authentication. Many organizations are now moving away from user name and passwords to multi-factor authentication (MFA), but not all forms of MFA are created equal. Organizations adopting mobile-based MFA such as SMS, OTP and push notification apps are leaving themselves open to attack while also increasing their operating expenditures. In this session, we will unravel the dark side of mobile authentication. Attendees will learn: - The top 5 mobile authentication misconceptions - How modern phishing defeats basic MFA - Why and how the YubiKey stops phishing attacks and account takeovers - Best practices to get started with phishing-resistant MFA
