CyberHoot – Two-Factor Authentication (2FA)

What is 2FA and why is it Important?

This CyberHoot core curriculum and Bootcamp video focuses on two-factor authentication (aka: 2FA). Two-factor authentication is the gold standard for securely authenticating yourself.  Banks, for a very long time now, have required clients to use two-factor authentication when:

    • accessing their website client portals;
    • clients calling into their support helpdesk; and
    • every time clients request a high value transaction such as sending a wire transfer. 

This video outlines the critical importance and value of setting up and using Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) on all of your critical accounts including:

    • VPN
    • Banking, Investments, and Finance websites
    • Email such as O365, Google Suite, or even free email accounts (Yahoo, AOL etc).
