Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is the process of verifying that you are
who you claim to be when logging in to a device or an account. If you're
reading this from your work computer, you probably logged in to your
computer - that's single-factor authentication. But single-factor
authentication is no longer enough to keep your accounts secure. Learn more
below about the various ways you can digitally-authenticate your identity.
Understanding the Types of Identity Claim
you own. This is using a mobile
phone or device that you have in your possession to prove your
identity. Typically, the device provides a code via an application,
text message, email, or voice call. You then enter this code, and for
successful authentication, your code must match what is expected by
the service you’re attempting to log in to.
you know. This is
something you’ve memorized or stored somewhere, such as a PIN. You
must supply the correct PIN to log in to your device or service.
you are. This factor is something
about your physical body that cannot be altered, such as your
fingerprint or retina. Biometric scanners or readers are used to
confirm you’re physically the person that you’re claiming to be.
Why do I need it?
In our digitally-driven world, passwords are no longer enough to keep your
information safe. These days, it takes minimal effort for hackers to break
into, or social engineer their way into, accounts that are only protected
by passwords. Adding an extra step to access your accounts, such as
entering an authentication code, means that hackers would also need to have
your phone to break in.
Create an additional layer of security and make it harder for criminals to
access your data by using two-factor or multi-factor authentication.
Consult your IT or Security department to see if your organization has a
preferred method of multi-factor authentication.

Up until the last year, I had been very fortunate that I
have not lost anyone significantly close to me. Like most, I thought I knew
what to expect.How very wrong I was.
My experience was scary, numbing, exhausting, and incredibly
soul shaking.I lost my mom on Oct 16,
2018.She was a kind loving individual,
who gave without expectation. Her last few years were a health struggle, but
that did not stop her wonderful smile and ornery attitude. She was gracious until
I cried everyday for over a month after her death. I still
cry and think of her daily. I wonder what it is like in heaven.I have questions that will never be answered.
I wish I knew how to cook and garden as well as she did, I wish I knew how to
can, I wish I knew how to make homemade jelly, I wish…

A doctor’s mis-diagnosis nearly took my life when I was eight years old. It wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I learned the full extent of the damage that was done from a ruptured appendix. After eight attempts at in-vitro fertilization, we began the adoption process. This will be easy, right?...…wrong. There are so many things to learn, decide and complete. What type of adoption, domestic or international? What country? It costs what? We have to fill out an application. What paperwork? More paperwork? It takes how long? We have to wait? Fingerprints at the Federal Building in Des Moines. A physical exam with a doctor and a blood test, seriously? A social worker will visit us, and we need personal recommendations. We must attend a class? Why doesn’t everyone who wants a baby have to go through this? This must be like the application process for a job with the FBI! This is not fair! The paperwork started and the wait began.We had a checklist that I referred t…
A few weeks ago, my son Drew came home and told me he
had taken his girlfriend out for supper. We had the usual conversation of where did you go, what did you have,
was it good? He answered all those questions, then he said something that
caught me totally off guard.He said
that when he went up to pay for his meal, he told the person at the register to
add in the elderly couple’s meal that was in the restaurant. I must admit I was a little taken back when he
told me this.I asked him if he knew the
couple and he said no.He said he just
thought it would be a nice thing to do. I responded with the comment that small random acts of
kindness can go a long way in making someone’s day.As a parent you always want your children to
do the right thing and show kindness.I
am so proud of him to take it upon himself and pay it forward to someone that
he didn’t even know. This kind gesture is proof positive that maybe all of
my lectures didn’t just go in one ear and out the other.
