Birmingham Bridge Tavern 2901 Sarah St , Pittsburgh, PA 15203 (map)

Security of our personal information is a big deal. In daily life when accessing various applications we are increasingly being asked to enter our credentials, and then perform another action (like enter a code that was messaged to our phone or e-mail) to access e-mail, bank and other accounts. Why?

Come join us on Monday, March 18th where we will be discussing multi-factor authentication (MFA). The topics will include what are the factors of authentication, why it is needed, and how implementing MFA can benefit users as well as the organization as a whole.
