☁️What’s on my mind
Some system administrators are getting sloppy. And that’s a recipe for disaster.
Despite all the good practices that Microsoft preaches, global admins still turn off multi-factor authentication on their accounts. Why? For me, this is a big mystery.
And what can happen? I have heard of a case where the damage caused by hijacked Azure infrastructure and the resources consumed went into the hundreds of thousands of euros.
MFA prevents 99.9 % of intrusions. Such simple protection, but totally under-appreciated.
What is your take on MFA? Maybe I’m not just missing something and I don’t get why someone would turn it off. Do you know any valid reason to do so? Press reply on this email and I’ll make sure your opinion is heard. I’ll post it here in the next issue.
Have a really great day.
