A new report has found that multi-factor authentication attacks are expected to rise in 2020. Multi-factor authentication involves using more than one device or access method to log in to a user account, for example a fingerprint scan and a unique pin. According to the report, 57 per cent of global businesses now use multi-factor authentication, making it a new target for hackers. Experts are predicting a rise in ‘9am attacks’ whereby end-users receive a notification to log in when they arrive at the office, inadvertently giving hackers access.
