Back on New to the Street TV another “WEEKLY HACK – SPECIAL SEGMENT with internationally acclaimed internet privacy expert Mr. Alain Ghiai, CEO, Sekur®, a division of GlobeX Data, Ltd. This week Anchor Ana Berry asked questions about 2FA (two-factor authentication)…Safe or not? 2-factor authentication is an additional protection layer to existing login information, ensuring that the person trying to log in to an online account is who they say they are. But Alain talks about the hacking of 10,000 Google subscribers to a particular 2FA service. There are various types of 2FA services, and in this Google case, the SMS message 2FA code went to the phones, which entered the prompt code from the website or service. Hackers trick mobile phone carriers into transferring a victim’s phone number to their phone, receiving the SMS code. Potentially any free 2FA access service could create a hack from malware exposure. Currently, Sekur is working with HYPR, a company that could provide a bulletproof 2FA for Sekur subscribers. Still, he looks at the economics before offering it as a Sekur service. Alain tells viewers the best secondary authentication method is biometric fingerprints. People remain hesitant to use their fingerprints for authentication because they feel cell phone cloud centers receive data. People should frequently change passwords, email accounts, and usernames. Or get a good password management program. Alain says the best passwords are sentences, not single words. Sekur does offer a password management program for businesses for $50 a month. Next week, Alain is back with more…What is the price of your privacy worth?
