MFA - it’s not a silver bullet

05 Apr 2023

Can we bypass MFA? Yes, we, can! Humans can be tricked so multi factor authentication is not a silver bullet. We will explore techniques to bypass MFA and more importantly detect and prevent if this occurs in your environment. Learn why monitoring is critical and what could happen at 3am when you get flooded with authentication requests.
Key Takeaways:
• Understanding MFA: A brief overview of MFA technologies and their benefits in enhancing security.
• MFA's limitations: Discussion of the potential weaknesses in MFA systems, including social engineering attacks, man-in-the-middle attacks, and vulnerabilities in the implementation of MFA solutions.
• Beyond MFA: Strategies to complement MFA, such as zero trust architectures, risk-based authentication, and continuous monitoring of user behaviour.
