3 ways attackers bypass Multi-Factor Authentication

And 3 ways to stop them.

bypass Multi-Factor Authentication

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is much more popular than it used to be. It’s easy to use and the enhanced security that it provides is supported by many services. But it’s not bulletproof. It is possible to bypass Multi-Factor Authentication.

How to get past the best security measures since the password was invented

The proliferation of mobile devices that support MFA in various different ways has helped make it a convenient option for users and life much harder for attackers, who need to develop ways to get around it. So, of course, they do.

In this report we examine how attackers manage to bypass Multi-Factor Authentication, a security measure that seems rock solid on the face of it.

Cyber Security DE:CODED – Cheating in security testing

“If they chose the best products by rolling a dice then they should say so”

Show notes for series 2, episode 8

If we’ve given the impression that we’re at the heart of the security world, working with the organisations that spend billions on security – and with the companies that make billions by selling security products – you’d be right. And that puts us in an awkward position. Because we want to make security better for everyone. And sometimes that means speaking some uncomfortable truths.

This episode is the uncomfortable truth episode.

Cyber Security DE:CODED – Security opportunities for Managed Service Providers

“Every SMB is an expert in something. A passion. It’s probably not anti-virus…”

Show notes for series 2, episode 7

Small business and Managed Service Provider special!

  • Do small businesses face the same cyber threats as large organisations?
  • Are your security solutions 100% effective? And how do you pick a good one?
  • Where are the opportunities for MSPs to add value and make more money?

In June 2022*, we set up a panel of security experts to help and advise companies selling managed security services. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) need to choose a set of security solutions that they can use or possibly resell to their small business clients, known as SMBs.

The clients face the same cyber threats as large organisations, but they’re far less equipped to handle them.

We answer all of these questions and more with special guests Martin Lee from Cisco, Chad Skipper from VMware, and Luis Corrons from Avast.

“As long as anything is online, it’s open for strangers to try to break protection”

Show notes for series 2, episode 4

Is it possible to secure your online life when you don’t control all of the systems in use?

Is anyone testing cloud security, or do we simply need to accept marketing claims?
