Organizations and individuals can benefit from using multi-factor authentication (MFA) to secure devices and accounts. With MFA enabled, two or more different authentication factors are needed to unlock a device or sign in to an account. Whether accessing email, cloud storage, or online banking services, MFA provides an extra layer of security from cyber attacks like credential stuffing. In credential stuffing, hackers use previously stolen credentials from one website, hoping that you have reused these credentials. If not already doing so, we recommend that you and your organization use MFA where possible to protect high-value business services and data from threat actors.
