4 thoughts on “Multi-Factor Authentication, Why Implement It?

  1. As someone who has experienced the negative effects of cybercrime, I can attest to the importance of implementing multi-factor authentication (MFA). In my personal life, I had my email hacked, which led to a domino effect of compromised accounts. It was a stressful and time-consuming process to regain control of my accounts and secure my data. In my professional life, I witnessed a local company suffer a significant data breach due to the lack of MFA implementation. The company faced negative fiscal after-effects, damage to their status within the community, and had to invest substantial resources in damage control. These experiences have taught me the value of taking proactive measures to protect sensitive information and the benefits of using MFA as an additional layer of security.

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience Akumendoh. We at SyberSec Solutions have worked with individuals and small firms to help them recover from a cyber incident and it is sometimes the case that we had to help clients to get over the fear of using technology and the feeling of being violated. Prevent is better than cure my mother used to say, I did not think that I would live to write this, but my mother was right!

  2. This is useful information which we all need to know and act on. I use 2 devices: my pc is synced with my iPad and I have an authenticator app so I can enter OTPs whenever needed. I also use a VPN to keep my IPad address secure. So far, I’ve remained secure. I also validate my ID whenever there’s the chance!, e.g. on LinkedIn, Facebook, and I feel that on Wealthy Affiliate my website security is really tight!

    I think things will get easier as time moves on and we are all alert to the tricks hackers get up to!

    One of the biggest threats to our security is catfish! I was attacked last year by a con-man gold dealer who got stranded in Sierra Leone and ended up in prison. I almost got on a plane to stand up for his release! it was a kind of madness and thank goodness my friends stopped me from going!

    Blessings and Success.
