Traditional, "tried-and-true" security wisdom tells us that tough perimeter controls, defense-in-depth, threat intelligence feeds, and all manner of security point products are the solutions to all our problems. However, as we've seen time and time again, breaches still happen, credentials still get lifted, and chaos ensues. Yet there's still hope -- authentication security is a viable avenue for making a huge impact against an attacker's sphere of influence and lateral movement capabilities.

In this presentation we'll highlight some examples where two-factor authentication provided the key defense for disrupting attacks.
