If you are a business owner or GM and are in any way up-to-date with current security practices, then you know all about Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) also known as Two-Factor Authentication (2FA). Banks can’t even legally let you log into their web portal without using some form of MFA, which is why you get a text message or email with a special one-time-use code to be able to do online banking. This is such a HUGE DEAL for online security that even free services, like gmail email and yahoo email, offer 2fa at no charge. So the important question is this: If your business has MFA enabled on all of your online services, should you do anything else or are you totally safe? The answer may surprise you.
If you are like us, then you have MFA enabled on any and everything. This means you are being a responsible administrator! THANK YOU for not enabling hackers by setting your business up to pay them for their dirty-work!
However, I recently learned of how even with MFA, your business can be totally hacked and held for ransom. Below, I’ll outline (1) how this works and (2) the steps to prevent it.*
*This solution ASSUMES that you already have MFA enabled on your online services. If you do not have MFA enabled then OH MY GOODNESS DO THIS BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD!
