Data security is everything in today’s increasingly digital world. More now than ever before, we need to be sure that our information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands. We’ve added two-factor authentication to our login process to make sure all the information stored in our system remains for your eyes only.
“ Just entering a password won’t be enough, as passwords are too easy to hack. Everyone will have to provide additional information to make sure that only authorised users can access the system. "
We live in a data-rich, increasingly connected world. This has huge benefits in terms of being able to track all kinds of performance metrics and make more informed decisions, faster. But we’re also putting a lot of sensitive information online which can have serious consequences is it falls into the wrong hands.
At FrancisKodak, we recognise the importance of data security. As part of our commitment to using innovative technology to solve key business challenges, we have added two-factor authentication to our login process. We understand that the tech world is full of jargon, so we wanted to provide a simple explanation about what two-factor authentication means.
Think about the last time you bought something online using your credit or debit card. Many card providers add an extra security check by texting a code to your phone that you then have to input online. This is to make sure that the card hasn’t fallen into the wrong hands and is being used fraudulently.
Two-factor authentication comes in different formats. It could be answering your secret question or using a fingerprint and pin to log in, or even clicking on a link in an email. All it means is that you need to provide two different ways to identify yourself.This is the case with another that is logging into our Another Set of Eyes (ANET) software.
Just entering a password won’t be enough, as passwords are too easy to hack. Everyone will have to provide additional information to make sure that only authorised users can access the system.
