Two-Factor is Still Missing …

Just read this article about the FBI getting hacked and that had two-factor authentication (2FA) been implemented at the FBI then it could have prevented the hacks against its own systems. No doubt about it, 2FA would have definitely helped.

You would think for such sensitive information you would naturally have this, but you’d be surprised, even in the private sector 2FA seems to be missing. Two of the three banks I use don’t support 2FA (guess where I keep most of money as a result :P). And these two are major banks, probably top 10 in the world. So what’s keeping these institutions with globs of sensitive data from implementing 2FA?  Cost? Expertise?

Maybe a new market opportunity … ?
