Password hacking, or credential theft is often the easiest and most widely used techniques by adversaries/blackhats. As a result, text messaging, handheld tokens, and authenticator apps (Google) have been designed and implemented to help secure our logins. To the average web user, business owner, or large enterprise, multi-factor authentication may be misunderstood, improperly deployed and considered a bit of a nuisance.

Our panel of experts will help to enlighten us all. They will be sharing their insights, challenges and most importantly, how each person can better protect their accounts and leverage all of the security your favorite websites and services can provide!
