When MFA Goes Wrong and How to Set It Right (EDUCAUSE Security Conference Workshop)

Tuesday, April 21 | 8:30am PST

@EDUCAUSE Security Professionals Conference 2020

Register for the EDUCAUSE conference and this workshop to attend!

In this preconference workshop, happening at the EDUCAUSE Security Professionals Conference, Duo Product Group Manager Steve Won will:

  • Discuss how MFA methods have evolved
  • Provide a dissection of several successful attacks
  • Explore how modern MFA solutions fare against the same threats
  • Explain how Duo's new Device Health application reduces the risk of security breaches (ransomware, malware, data loss, etc.) due to unsafe and vulnerable laptop/desktop devices

This preconference workshop is part of the EDUCAUSE Security Professionals Conference, and requires additional registration.

With more than three decades of use, multifactor authentication is a proven method to reduce the risk of breaches due to stolen or weak credentials. While nearly any MFA method is an improvement over username and password alone, creative and resourceful attackers continue to expose weaknesses in legacy solutions such as token- or telephony-based authentication. When considering or reviewing your secure access options, there are valuable lessons that can be learned from some of these real-world examples.

Join Steve Won on Tuesday, April 21 at 8:30 a.m. for a grounded discussion on how MFA methods have evolved, a dissection of several successful attacks, and how modern MFA solutions fare against the same threats. Additionally, learn how with Duo's new Device Health application, we are now able to extend endpoint control and visibility further, reducing the risk of security breaches (ransomware, malware, data loss, etc.) due to unsafe and vulnerable laptop/desktop devices.
