Making security simple

Stefan Hammond | April 3, 2013
Conventional wisdom says that simple security is an oxymoron. Good security is complex, while uncomplicated security is weak.

Is there a limit to the scale of cyberintrusion? I can't see it. But 2FA is an important component of any security strategy. Consumer services like Gmail and Apple's iCloud now offer 2FA: the second factor being an SMS message to a previously secured mobile phone number (not necessarily available in Asia, yet).

The evolution of 2FA as a simple yet effective security measure is heartening. Nothing invented by humans cannot be broken by humans, but as ever in the security world, we take our small victories and build on them.
