Chapter Virtual Meeting


Happy New Year 2021 to our Members and Guests.

We have a great topic for the January 2021 Virtual Chapter Meeting. Everyone knows that multi-factor authentication (MFA) is more secure than a simple login name and password, but too many people think that MFA is a perfect, unhackable solution. It isn't! I can send you a regular phish email and completely take control of your account even if you use a super-dooper MFA token or smartphone app. Attend this presentation and learn the 12+ ways hackers can and do get around your favorite MFA solution. The presentation will include a (pre-filmed) hacking demo by KnowBe4's Chief Hacking Officer, Kevin Mitnick, and real-life successful examples of every attack type. It will end by telling you how to better defend your MFA solution so that you get maximum benefit and security.

Topic: 12 Ways to Hack MFA (Multi Factor Authentication
