#BeCyberSmart: Why MFA Doesn't Solve Everything

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Each week of the month has a different theme. This week's theme is how to #BeCyberSmart. For our entry, we discuss multi-factor authentication.

Because of that, it raises the importance of implementing multi-layered security.
