Multi-Factor Authentication

Anti-phishing scenario-based training is a vital tool in the arsenal against phishing attacks, but it only lessens the attack surface against vulnerable humans. Email banners exclaiming external senders provide an additional level of alerting, but still rely on the effectiveness of training, thereby only minimizing the danger.

The only truly effective way to reduce the threat to approach zero (you will never hit zero) is to implement some form of multi-factor authentication on virtually every critical asset within an organization. That way, when the last vulnerable human makes a mistake, the ability for the attacker to simply exploit a technical win just becomes another extremely difficult hurdle. Ultimately, well-crafted and enforced security policies also play a pivotal role in protecting vulnerable humans. This is particularly true for the increasing case numbers of financial fraud where attackers use social engineering to bypass separation of duties and signature authority controls.
