Enhance cybersecurity awareness and survivability for DoD, industry partners, and academia in the face of the ever-increasing threat of cyber attacks. Cybersecurity (CS) includes managing risks related to the use, processing, storage, and transmission of information and the systems and processes used for those purposes, including analog and physical form. CS includes information availability, identification and authentication, confidentiality, integrity, and non-repudiation as well as the economic considerations with respect to selection of CS techniques, CS processes, and industry trends.
Why Has Multifactor Authentication Has Become a Target For Hackers?
First, let me introduce you to the method on Multi-Factor authentication if you aren’t already aware of what it is. Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is a security system that verifies a user’s identity by requiring multiple credentials. The rise of popularity within Multi-Factor Authentication has resulted in many cyber attacks trying to gain access to other peoples personal information through the use of the Multi-Factor Authentication. One of the most common forms of attacks is the “SIM” swap, this is when the hacker changes the number associated with your “SIM” card in order to assume your identity. Another form of cyber attacks involving this is referred to as “Channel Jacking”. What this means is that the attacker will send you an email saying anything to rope the victim in, most typically they will create a fraudulent page to be made like your bank and once you enter all your information they’re able to put it to use.
