authenticationHackers see small businesses as easy targets, but you can bolster your defences by enabling two-factor authentication on your online accounts.

Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security that can stop intruders breaking into your accounts, even if they know the password. With two-factor authentication enabled, access to your account relies on something you know – your login and password – and something you have.

The something you have can be a range of things. Often it’s your smartphone, with a single-use code sent to you as a text message. You need to enter both your password and the one-time code in order to access your account; just one isn’t enough. This locks... Read More
