Tuesday, October 25, 2011 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm

1-factor, 2-factor, multi-factor - too many terms and most people don't understand what it means and how it can make you more secure.

1-factor authentication is simple, we use it every day when we login to our workstations; it is something we know, like username and password. This simple authentication process is used for just about everything we use on the Internet: social networking, banking, email and gaming sites. But what is 2-factor authentication? How does it make me more secure? Why does Gmail ask me if I want to enable it? Aren't the secret security questions enough? Join MOREnet Security as we answer these questions and show you how to enable 2-factor authentication on your Gmail account. Once you have the basics, you will want 2-factor authentication everywhere!
