How to Strengthen the “Weakest Link” with Two-Factor Authentication: SANS Webinar

Did you miss our webinar with SANS and TrustedSec? Watch a video recording of How to Strengthen the "Weakest Link" with Two-Factor Authentication.

Featuring Duo Security’s Security Evangelist Mark Stanislav and TrustedSec’s Founder David Kennedy, this webinar focuses on user security. Often users of technology are considered to be the weakest link in an organization’s chain of security controls - no surprise there, we’re all human.

But by manipulating a user’s actions, an attacker can gain control over critical systems and data, all while fooling the user into believing their actions are safe and well-advised.

As the perimeter of security continues to change, user-targeted attacks are becoming more prevalent and successful. With the increase and adoption of cloud-based solutions, the threat landscape has evolved with an emphasis on user-targeted, credential-stealing attacks, such as phishing campaigns and other social engineering avenues.

In this webinar, Dave and Mark explain new threats facing end-users of organizations, as well as provide insight into how modern two-factor authentication can mitigate these risks.

This webinar also features a demonstration of TrustedSec’s Social-Engineer Toolkit (SET) as it showcases the capabilities of a criminal executing user-targeted attacks, as well as how Duo Security’s patented technology empowers users to protect their organizations from stolen credentials and a system breach.

If you’re interested in user authentication security, stay tuned to view our last webinar featuring Principal Analyst Eve Maler from Forrester Research, 5 Signs You’re Doing Authentication Wrong, which we'll be posting soon! Duo Security’s Brian Kelly and CedarCrestone’s Daniel Frye also teamed up to present on modern two-factor authentication with a use case by CedarCrestone.
