As a form of social engineering, phishing attacks can be incredibly hard to prevent, with attackers using incredibly savvy methods to trick users into doing \’the wrong thing\’, such as clicking a bad link that will download malware. Attackers are now deploying a growing variety of tactics to target organisational issues inherent with hybrid work, human error, and shadow IT.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA), when correctly deployed, can mitigate cybercriminal attacks from using stolen credentials to access devices or networks in the case of a phishing attack. This approach is critical to any business, or individual consumers, as a means to decrease the chances of becoming victim to widespread phishing and other identity-first cyber-attacks.
