Sock draw safer than banks?
It's disturbing that we had to wait for 12 banks to be breached to make changes. As well as it's scary how easy it is to breach our banking systems. With technology we've opened a whole new world of opportunities for citizens but also for cyber criminals. The only way we can counter and mitigate threats on our banking systems and networks as a whole is to know and understand the motivations of threat actors so that we can stay ahead of them. We must stay on the offensive and I hope we rectify these flaws in our cyber security before another spate of attacks.  If not my sock draw is not looking sp bad for my pennies.

Re: 2FA
Yes, you are correct I misread that line. However, outside of organizations that incorporate SWIFT messages there are many that still use single factor authentication as a security measure for internet facing apps.

Re: 2FA
I believe that the article says that "in addition to 2FA" they are looking at implementing additional safety protocols.  3FA anyone?
