Our MFA lunch and learn session was a success! We’ve seen recently how security and in particular, how MFA has been a high priority for many of our clients. This session was held in the Diverse Boardroom, created to discuss the in-depth workings of MFA and how it can be easily implemented across workplaces. Since in May 2019 alone, ScamWatch reports that more than $1.7 million has been lost due to attempts at gaining personal information from: hacking, phishing attacks, identity theft and remote access scams. Unfortunately, many businesses don’t look at implementing safety barriers such as MFA until once it’s too late.
To urge the importance of this, the session was lead by our very own Chief Technologist, Nathan Manzi who has been at Diverse for more than five years. He was accompanied by our special guest speaker, Michael Richards who is a Security & Compliance Specialist for Microsoft Australia.

Lastly, Nathan concluded the session by showcasing Diverse’s capabilities and how we can assist with an MFA implementation.
