AUTH-2 Multi Factor Authentication (MFA)

Estimated reading: 2 minutes 560 views

What is this control about?

Similarly, to SSO, this is a best practice recommendation for critical systems, but not required.

What is required is that the company requires a unique username and password to authenticate to any system, program, or data.

Having MFA is industry best practice and enhances the protection mechanism, but that decision remains at the discretion of each organization.
