Protecting Your Small Business: Multi-Factor Authentication
Protecting Your Small Business: Multi-Factor Authentication
In this animated story, a food catering truck’s business is interrupted when someone creates fake social media posts on their account, sending customers to the wrong location. As the truck owner works to recover control of the business’ account, he learns about multi-factor authentication, a technique for adding layers of security to account access. This video also helps introduce the subject of multi-factor authentication or MFA, an increasingly common cybersecurity technique. More information can be found at the NIST Small Business Cybersecurity Corner website.

Content outlined on the Small Business Cybersecurity Corner webpages contain documents and resources submitted directly to us from our contributors. These resources were identified by our contributors as information they deemed most relevant and timely—and were chosen based on the current needs of the small business community. Certain commercial entities may be identified in this website or linked websites. Such identification is not intended to imply recommendation or endorsement by NIST, nor is it intended to imply that the entities, materials, or equipment are necessarily the best available for the purpose.

If your resource is publicly available on the Internet, accurate and comprehensive for a given type of cybersecurity risk or risk-reducing measure, and freely available for others to use, it meets the basic criteria for potential inclusion in the Small Business Cybersecurity Corner website. That includes resources from government agencies and nonprofit organizations. If your resource qualifies and you would like it considered for listing, send a description of your resource to smallbizsecurity [at] nist.gov.
