Every security best practices guide and regulation asks for MFA and device visibility. The DfE in the 2022 Cyber Security Standards state: “You should protect accounts with access to personal or sensitive operational data and functions by multi-factor authentication.”
Multi-factor authentication only allows access to a service when you present two or more different forms of authentication. It reduces the possibility of an attacker compromising an account.
In this context, sensitive or personal data is all data that if lost or compromised, would have a serious impact on the establishment, staff or students.
81% of breaches are caused by stolen or weak passwords
