“I Don’t Like SMS But I Like FIDO For MFA” #193

In Episode #193, Bill talks with Roger Grimes, who is the Data-Driven Defense Evangelist at KnowBe4.

Bill asks Roger his thoughts on where the future of Multifactor Authentication is heading. Between SMS-based MFA, application-based MFA, and FIDO keys, there is a lot of options. However, not all MFA solutions are created equally.

Bill loves this quote from Roger where he questions just how secure a lot of these MFA options are, “I looked at 130 MFA solutions, I can hack them all at least four or five ways. And most of them 11 or 12 ways. And it’s funny, the MFA people always are like, ‘You can hack mine. You can have mine.’ And then, I just literally look at a solution in five minutes. I’m like, ‘This is how you do it. Boom, Boom one, two, three, four, five.’”
